I have just returned from a trip to Cambodia organised through Roy Davies at World Discovery in Dorking. I would like to pass on my thanks for a truly wonderful and enjoyable trip. I would very much like to thank you for providing me with Prasith (guide) and the driver in Phnom Penh and Sarun and Mr. Bo in Siem Reap.
Prasith was extremely knowledgeable. He delivered information in excellent English, could answer any questions and was superb. He was waiting when I arrived, completed the visa process easily and quickly. As I was too early for check-in, he had already contacted the hotel to ask for a room and I was found one within 90 minutes. He was an exceptional guide. The driver too was excellent. Always attentive, always waiting with cold drinking water and negotiated the streets easily and safely.
Siem Reap was different from Phnom Penh as a city, however, the level of guiding from Sarun was spectacular. He was extremely knowledgeable, could show me places which other guides would not, was thoughtful about when to timetable visits for cooler, less crowded times and arranged extra trips for me, checked that everything was as it should be and was attentive at all times. Mr Bo’s local knowledge was first class. He always accommodated any request, however difficult, (coffee at 11 o’clock in remote places!) was always waiting with cold water and a refreshing wipe, drove expertly and safely.
I have travelled all over the world and these guides and drivers were probably the best I have ever had. If I ever return to Cambodia, (and I hope I shall,) I would request the same team.
Thanks to the fabulous temples of Angkor, awarded World Heritage status by UNESCO, Cambodia is now firmly established on the tourist map. Yet there is much more to see than the famous temples. The pleasant capital Phnom Penh is home to the superb Royal Palace and Siver Pagoda, whilst in the remote 'Terres Rouges' of Rattanakiri Province can be found stunning landscapes and colourful minority peoples with unusual customs and beliefs. With its balmy climate and its developing white-sand beach resorts, Cambodia offers all the ingredients for a perfect holiday.
Adding a further dimension to our Cambodia holidays is the luxury Mekong River cruise aboard the Mekong Explorer, taking you to some of the lesser known attractions on its journey to Siem Reap and the temples of Angkor.
