Ms Ibasco said that the Miss Earth Pageant has been held in the Philippines since 2001 and since NagaWorld is very actively involved in corporate social responsibility works, they could not resist coming to Cambodia to participate in some of the activities.

“We took part in in some of these social activities such as cleaning of schools, tree planting and other activities which are so gratifying to us. We also visited Angkor Wat and that is something which will remain etched in our minds forever because of their amazing heritage structures,” she said.

A very good experience indeed and I cannot wait to see more history in Cambodia. We also visited the genocide museum and we learned about the sad history, and glad to know it is over now. However every country had its own history, and it is good that the younger generation can learn what happened in the country.” Ms Ibasco continued.

Ms Ibasco  said that Cambodia has a fascinating history and interesting places of interests such as to the Tuol Tom Pong Market (Russian Market) and the opportunity to taste local delicacies made the trip very memorable.
