“ABOUTAsia is about life changing travel. First visiting Siem Reap on my own vacation, I founded ABOUTAsia not only to provide visitors to Cambodia and beyond with memorable and meaningful tailor-made travel experiences but also to create a sustainable funding model to support local communities: 100% of all profits are donated to the charity ABOUTAsia Schools. Our passionate team lives and works in Cambodia where our destination expertise is unrivaled – Condé Nast Traveler selected us in their coveted list of the world’s 146 top travel specialists in 2013 for Cambodia. And with crowd avoidance core to our travel philosophy, you can expect us to lead you down the uncommon path.”
Andy Booth, Founder & CEO
Funding education through tourism is at the heart of ABOUTAsia – it’s the very reason we were founded. With the firm belief that luxury travel can simultaneously change the lives of the world’s most and least fortunate all of our profits are donated to ABOUTAsia Schools, which to date supports over 50,000 children across 108 Schools in Siem Reap through targeted educational programmes. By choosing to travel with ABOUTAsia you are already helping to make a difference.

There are as many ways to see the UNSECO World Heritage Site of Angkor as there are Angkorian temples. What sets ABOUTAsia Travel apart? Based here in Siem Reap, just 3km from Angkor Wat, we conduct regular and extensive scientific research including footfall surveys at key temple sites to know when they are at their quietest. All itineraries integrate our in-depth insider knowledge so you can avoid the crowds as much as possible, capture the temples in their best light, and rediscover the magic of Angkor. We even take people to hidden temples some tour guides don’t know about.

Travelling in style and comfort is only part of what luxury travel means to. It’s also about the sense of wonder, discovery and self-discovery you get from one-of-a-kind and unexpected, intimate experiences. With our exclusive access to people and places sip cocktails in our private countryside villa, be guided by leading academics on the temples and invited behind the scenes of projects usually prohibited to the public, take breakfast at an Angkorian ruin and cruise the Tonle Sap lake on our luxury boat reaching untouristic stilted villages all as part of our customized tours. ABOUTAsia is in the memory making business.
