Heritage-History Tour, Sightseeing
I am a licensed tour guide for Angkor Archaeological Park and other tourism sites around Cambodia for the past 10 years. I have prepared with the needs of all travellers in mind. I provide exciting and amazing sightseeing tours for independent adventurers. I love my job as I tell the rich-cultural heritages to the world. I can assist your planning trip to navigate through enchanting Angkor Wat and its many spectacular temples and countryside.
I was born in 1972 during the war. Most parts of Cambodia were bombed killing so many people. When I was just three-years-old, the Khmer Rouge, known as Killing Field, started to control Cambodia from 1975 to 1979. I was dying of hunger like millions of people as well. Two of my brothers were killed during the Khmer Rouge time. After the Khmer Rough, Communists controlled Cambodia. In 1982, I started my school under the tree. I learned how to write my first Cambodian ABC on the ground because of chalk, blackboard, book, pen and pencil were not available. I started my English when I was 16-years-old in my homeland. My Cambodian English teacher, classmates and I were arrested because we were not allowed to learn English.
When I was a student, I always did some jobs to support my family as well as my study. After schooling, I went to the rice field to help parents. Later on, I worked as a cake seller by selling many kinds of cakes from one village to another. When I moved to Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia, to pursue my university, I started teaching English. Not only I could improve my English a lot because of teaching but also I was able to earn enough to support my study. I spent weekend time to voluntarily teach computer lessons to the poor/orphans at Khmer Association. As soon as I finished my university, I got a job as Sponsorship Assistant for World Vision Cambodia then I became the Building Relations Manager for Plan International. Since 2005, I’ve been a tour guide.
I am married with three children. They are Vorak, 11, Sreyneath, 9 and Sreypov, 6. Because of your support, they all can go to English class now. I speak English with them at home so their English is improving quickly. I am proud of them.
If you have me as a guide then I will promise to work hard and try my best to provide you with exciting, amazing, independent and adventurous tours, full of unforgettable memory and experience.
