Chhaya Tes

Guide profile:

Dear distinguished visitors!

I am Chhaya, a professional tour guide of Angkor. I have been doing this job since 1995.

First of all I would like to thank you for reading my brief background as well as my biography.

I was born in Siem Reap near the Angkor, UNESCO World Heritage Site. I had been through the Killing Field- Khmer rouge, I grew up and started my school as soon as Pol Pot regime collapsed I began my English course in the private school. I attended the Teacher Training College in 1990 and I've become the teacher since 1993. I joined the Guide Training Course at the beginning of tourism in Cambodia , I was successfully certified a tour guide. As long as I have been working two jobs together I graduated Bachelor of Business Administration in 2006. So far I've experienced different things in my life. I always try my best to satisfy visitors and dealing with the problems and improve myself to be a very professional expert guide to perform the role as: a teacher, an entertainer, an ambassador, a nurse, a leader and a boss, and treat the guests as King.

I am looking forward to contacting you any time by phone or email.

Regards,

Chhaya Tes

Chhaya was an easy going very knowledgeable guide. He prepared a well organised tour of as many sites that we could want to see. He was also good to talk to about current events be they local or world-wide. All in all someone I would highly recommend.

Siem Reap sightseeing tours:

visit the daily-life of people living in the suburbs of Siem Reap, driving in the country road stop and take pictures of the farmer houses with their cattle (cows, bulls, buffaloes, horses...), trees, plants, vegetables in the fields in the village. Visit the farmers grow rice, plow the field, drive the oxen cart, then go into the monastery, meet and talk to the monk, see the beautiful paintings inside and Buddhas. It's really interesting, it must be different from where you're from.
