Discover the amazing 500 Lohan statues while the "Ring of Fire" passes overhead!
ANGKOR WAT & BINTAN ISLAND “Ring of Fire”

December 18-27, 2019

JOIN US! AS WE EXPLORE THE MYSTERIES OF ANGKOR WAT! AND DISCOVER THE AMAZING 500 LOHAN STATUES ON BINTAN ISLAND BENEATH THE LOFTY GAZE OF THE “RING OF FIRE” OF THE ANNULAR ECLIPSE ON DECEMBER 26TH!

This adventure will enable you to explore the most renowned archaeological site in southeast Asia, Angkor Wat, and Angkor Thom, Bayon Temple, and other temples which are part of the Angkor complex! Angkor Wat is a great source of national pride in Cambodia, and offers a tremendous artistic legacy from the 12th century.

You will also discover the fascinating array of 500 life-size Lohan statues (a legacy of the 21st century, which only opened in 2017) during the Annular Eclipse or “Ring of Fire” on Bintan Island! This ethereal location will be that much more fascinating as the light softens, and the eclipse occurs!

Bintan is just an hour by ferry from Singapore, and for centuries it was renowned as a harbor for pirates -- Pirate Island!

The Lohan statues are a modern-day creation, which we suspect may become renowned like the“Terra Cotta Warriors” of China over the millennia. It is quite astonishing to arrive at the site and see the magnificent array of 500 life-size statues spread out in front of you, each one different than the others.

Exploring these extraordinary cultural and archaeological wonders (built 9 centuries apart) will certainly be a lifetime experience. The frosting on the cake will be watching the “Ring of Fire” pass over the Lohan site!

We hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to join us!
