I remember being introduced to Vanith Hoeum @ the Journeys Within Boutique Hotel in Siem Reap on 4 Feb. 2013 @ 8:00AM. He presented himself with a friendly and polite smile on his face with an eager look on him to show us beautiful Siem Reap and the Angkor Temple Complex. His knowledge of the history of Angkor, Siem Reap and Cambodia was phenomenal. He literary was our History teacher with a smile, of course, during the 3-days we were with him. I have learned more from him during this trip compared to my Asian History class during high school 40+ years ago. He was very thorough with his descriptions and explanations regarding the history of all the sites he took us. Along with his knowledge and experience as a Tour Guide, he was also a kind, conscientious, friendly, bubbly and hospitable person who is full of energy and eager to please others. He conducted tours in a comfortable and relaxed pace consistent with our level of energy and physical abilities and was never in a hurry. Because of this, we were able to absorb the knowledge he imparted to us regarding the historical sites, local customs and traditions of his beautiful land. He really is a true and consummate professional that is matched only by his good nature, intelligence, friendliness and respect to others. After the 3-days with him, I have considered him a new found friend, which was truly an honor and pleasure for me to do so. Undoubtedly, I will communicate with him regularly and plan to visit him again in the future. THANK YOU, VANITH, MY FRIEND for taking care of us. We hope to see you again in the future!

I enjoy world travel and sharing these experiences with others who are also interested., The Philippines and U.S.A.
A big thank you to Vanith for being such a great tour guide to us during our 1 day trip to Siem Reap. Even though we only have 1 day but he really makes us feel at home. We really appreciate his humble and friendly attitude. Having him around as our tour guide really helps us a lot in knowing the history of Siem Reap.
I would say that Vanith is a pleasant guy who always smile no matter how tired is he. He is very thoughtful and he really understand all his customers need. He is very flexible in fulfilling his customers need. I would say I have no regret in choosing him as our tour guide. I will definitely be coming back to Siem Reap again and this time I will choose no one but our thoughtful and friendly tour guide Mr. Vanith Hoeum
