Siem Reap, Cambodia

Joum Reab Sour, hello ladies and gentlemen! My name is Haklao, but you can call me, Lao.

Welcome to the Kingdom of Cambodia.

I was born in 1996. Despite my young age, I have a lot of expertise in providing private tours to travellers from all over the world.

I grew up in a very small hidden village about 150 km west of Siem Reap. I was the only one boy in the village who loved education, but my family couldn't afford to pay for my daily expenses at school. Due to the poverty, I left my family to live in a Buddhist monastery where I spent 4 years going to high school with enough financial support from the monks.

In mid-2014 after high school, I moved to Siem Reap, the most famous tourist attraction in Cambodia, for a Bachelor Degree in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) taking a night class. During the day, I went to a private college for a Bachelor Degree in Tourism and Hospitality Management for one year. Soon after, I started working at the hotel as a Night Auditor to just get some money to pay for my school fees, so I slept only 2 hours a night until early 2015. My hard works have finally paid of, and now I am a tour guide. I am very proud of myself that I could do it.

I have had a great opportunity for being an official licensed English speaking tour guide for Siem Reap Region since joining tour guide training course in the weekend organized by Cambodia Ministry of Tourism in early 2015. Because I am a well trained and licensed by Cambodia Ministry of Tourism, all results of my work are full of excellent service including English usage, Knowledge, Attitude, Professionalism, which always meet the customers' expectation. I have always focused on providing exceptional customer service; I have performed achievement in complete accordance to the policies and procedures of the tourism, and I have put my best efforts forward to offering insight in streamlining tour service to reach your expectation.

I really love my job because it gives me the opportunity to share my country's rich history and cultures with different people around the world. I specialize in history, cultures, local daily lives, hiking, biking, and off-roading. I am very enthusiastic, helpful, and friendly with great knowledge of my country and fluent English.

Presently, I have been working as a freelance English speaking tour guide in Siem Reap. My goal is to provide a premium experience, and I always do my best to make your tour a memorable one! Additionally, I am a Cambodia travel specialist who plans unforgettable trips/holidays to Cambodia for travelers.

Please do not hesitate to contact me for a free customized tour. I am willing to answer all your inquiries.

I look forward to serving you with unique unforgettable experience.

Yours sincerely,

Lao
