    I had an amazing trip to Cambodia, and must credit my unique experiences in both Siem Reap and other places I travelled to my guide in Siem Reap - am I allowed to say his name here and contact info? I see other people post info. so his is: touch_sopanha@yahoo.com. Sophana was professional, extremely knowledgeable, versatile, always willing to help with things not directly associated with touring, and he has a beautiful and contagious smile! Sophana speaks and writes excellent English and I had no problems communicating with him through email and telephone prior to my trip, and in-person while with him. Mr. Sophana is not only knowledgeable about the temples, culture and Cambodia overall, but his passion for his country and people is strong and he is enthusiastic about sharing his passions. Sophana worked with me to tailor my trip specifically to my wants and needs and offered invaluable information and suggestions to help me with my trip decisions. In addition, when I left Siem Reap he put me in touch with others he trusted to help me during my travels. I highly recommend Mr. Sophana as not only a Siem Reap tour guide, but also as an invaluable asset to all facets of Cambodia travel. I am happy to answer any questions - I hope I have not broken Forum rules here...

    Yes, contact him. He answers his email pretty quickly and will also call or text if need be. Tell him Jakut in Jakarta says hello...

    There is no way to send just you a message here? I am a teacher and came here 15 months ago knowing nothing about Jkta, do not speak much Bahasa, but gestures go a long way...
