In a service business its all about the people.
Put simply, we live here. Cambodia and the Angkor temples are our backyard and our playground. We want to share our knowledge and sense of fun with you to transform your travel from a vacation into a life-enhancing experience.
Combining the best elements of Western Management and hand-picked local talent the team at ABOUTAsia are second to none in the industry. We understand that attention to detail comes first. Our ambassadors are our enthusiastic guests and growth mainly comes through 'word of mouth' recommendation. And by choosing ABOUTAsia Travel, you are contributing directly to rural education for the most needy in Cambodia.
Andy grew up on a small farm on the English, Welsh borders. After rowing his country, he developed a highly successful team in the world of Finance before turning his considerable talents to the Cambodian travel industry and helping the country. Having been swept away with the beauty of the country and the friendliness of the Khmer people, Andy founded a responsible travel company here in 2005 redefining standards for luxury touring in the country. Andy's hands-on approach, enthusiasm and determination have ensured ABOUTAsia has achieved the highest reputation for quality and service excellence.
An Oxford-educated PhD, New Zealander Kelly has travelled extensively throughout Asia and Europe before making Cambodia her home. Kelly maintains the excitement of visiting an exotic foreign land for the first time and will work closely with you to understand your interests, time available and budget. Even if you only have a few days in Cambodia, Kelly will ensure you experience the "must see" attractions at the less crowded times of day as well as many other hidden gems. Kelly strives to answer all enquiries as soon as possible and will be the friendly voice at the end of the phone should you ever call ABOUTAsia.
The 'other' Englishman in the company, Andy has moved from an Oxford University-based career in science research and education into sports and leisure management and sales. Andy is passionate about Southeast Asia, and originally traveled with ABOUTAsia as a guest, where he was impressed by Andy Booth's mission and energy. Since moving to Siem Reap, he works closely with Andy in all aspects of business development as they expand the services offered by the company.
Back to About Us
An experienced and respected former guide Pheakdey makes your dreams and our itinerary planning a reality. His well trained teams of guides, drivers and boatmen move you seamlessly around the country while his in-office team ensure you get the right hotel room and are met even if your flight is delayed. Pheakdey interprets and executes the agreed itinerary but is mindful to provide the flexibility you desire on your vacation, a hallmark of ABOUTAsia.
Our experienced team of tour guides are well known and respected in Siem Reap for their professionalism and training. The Head Guide is Chem Bunchay, who along with his colleague Phum Kanya have been helping visitors experience the best of Cambodia for almost a decade. Both are qualified guides, have university degrees in business administration and Bunchhay is also nearing the completion of his law degree. A typical comment from one of our guests mentions Bunchay's guiding style...
"Bunchay told me incredible stories about the temples of Angkor whilst guiding me through jungle pathways to the next view of the extraordinary temples... with Bunchay I just felt I was walking and talking with a friend, rather than following a tour leader."
Peerless service standards and local positioning have made us the tour operator of choice by international luxury travel groups and discerning independent travellers to Angkor Wat, Cambodia and Southeast Asia.
