Makara (Mak)

Siem Reap, Cambodia

Chom Reab Sur (How do you do) ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Cambodia, Kingdom of Wonder!

I am Makara, but you can call me MaK. I was born in 1994 and grew up on a farm in Kompot province with my family of ten members. It is about 450 km from Angkor Wat temple. It was a very difficult period of Cambodia and I have never expected what I can be today because I born in a place with no school, market, clean water or good road etc. Most of my friends in the village gave up from school and went to work for money, but I did not. Even it was so difficult to survive, but my parents still tried to work very hard to bring my brothers, sister and I to study for the better future. They always encouraged me to study, I really appreciate and would never let them down or disappointed in anyway.

I completed high school in 2012. Soon after, I decided to move to Siem Reap, the most famous tour destination of Cambodia and earned a Bachelor Degree in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) at the university of Build Bright in 2016. Fortunately, I took the tourist guide exam and I successfully passed. Then, I joined the training course for one year organized by ministry of Tourism of Cambodia in 2013-2014.

Before being a tourist guide, I had studied and worked at the same time because I had to earn money to support my family, daily expenses and school fees. I have worked at the hotel as a receptionist, guest relation, auditor and taught English as a second language at the private school for a while.

I am now an active licensed professional tourist guide acknowledged by the Ministry of Tourism of Cambodia and have been guiding tours all over Cambodia as well as in Siem Reap since 2014.

I love being a personal tourist guide in terms of bringing visitors to learn and discover about the local authentic city, rich cultures, histories, religions, architectures, daily life of Cambodian people and others which make my country so special.

With my professionalism, I am able to offer travelers with excellent services and enjoyable activities during the trip in Cambodia. I pride myself on my ability to add personal touches to every tour I conduct. It is extremely important that my clients return home with experiences to remember.

I am completely flexible as far as times and itineraries are concerned. I operate on your schedule, at your pace, with your comfort, desires and wishes as my highest priorities.

Please don't hesitate to contact me whenever you have any special request and I will help you to create the best itinerary based on your interests and needs.

I look forward to making your visit to Siem Reap, Cambodia absolutely unforgettable and one you want to repeat.

See you soon!
