Stop At: Cambodia Landmine Museum, Angkor National Park, 7km south of Banteay Srey Temple, Siem Reap Cambodia
This 3-hour tour brings you to the life’s work of a former child soldier, Aki Ra. He erected the museum in 1997 and has had countless of media attention because of the awareness of how damaging mortars, guns and other weaponry have been on his life and many others in the Kingdom. The founder of the Landmine Museum once was trained in planting landmines in his own country at the time the Khmer Rouge ruled with an iron fist. By using home-made tools he became an expert in defusing these destructive items after the Khmer Rouge was dethroned as the ruling party. The museum gives each visitor an insight in the various types used, the techniques and the results of what it has done to the Khmer population.
Aki Ra also has set up a home for the less-fortunate in Cambodia in providing education and support to raise awareness of the countless people that still are affected by the aftermath of war. On the way back to Siem Reap, we take a break and witness how local farmers are collecting sugar palm and working in the rice paddy fields around Siem Reap.
