Siem Reap Angkor Tour
Chantrea, also known as “Mr. Moon” (due to the literal translation of chantrea meaning “The Moon”), has been a tour guide since 2007.
Chantrea spent his childhood in a rural area of the Battambang province. His whole family moved with him to Siem Reap so he could continue his studies in high school. After high school, he enrolled in a hotel and tourism program at Siem Reap University. Upon graduation, Chantrea started his career as a licensed tour guide in the Angkor region, and founded his tour company.
Chantrea’s knowledge about Cambodia’s ancient heritage, the temples, and the culture is what sets him apart from other guides. He strives to combine his knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm into your vacation, creating a tour you will treasure forever. He feels that, as a guide, his priority is helping travelers truly understand the diversity of Cambodia’s culture and landscape.
When Chantrea is not leading a sightseeing tour, you can find him working with the community of Siem Reap. He is a founder of the Foundation for Water & Education, Cambodia. This is a project in Siem Reap, which provides opportunities to live healthier lives and develop economic security. This is done through a clean water well program and by providing bicycles for children of poor families so they are able to commute to school.
