Cambodia and Vietnam

Cambodia and Vietnam (12th Century Angkor Wat to 21st Century Saigon)


Wednesday November 9, 2016
7:00 PM
Join us as Morris Township resident Mark Rochkind guides us through these exotic locales that only recently Americans have begun to rediscover.

Travels through two neighboring and colorful countries in Southeast Asia reveal very different societies. Both are burdened by tragic histories. While the countrysides in both countries are similar, Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) is a thriving metropolis with modern skyscrapers and bustling commerce.  here is no such city in Cambodia.  Nonetheless, in Cambodia, there is peace, little crime, no one is starving, and the people seem generally satisfied. Cambodia is home to the world’s largest religious monument, the Hindu temple of Angkor Wat. Built in the 12th Century, the impressive structure is remarkably well preserved.
