About
We are led by members of the deportee community. We are Cambodian and raised in the US and speak fluent English. Our strong working knowledge of Khmer gets us around the country and reminds us of our roots. We offer you insights about the Cambodian community outside of Cambodia and the local communities. With our authentic voices and unique life histories, we show you off-the-beaten track sites. ZIN is a social venture that supports our community with transition services and employment opportunities. ZIN also maintains close relationships with the local communities where we take you. We work with local licensed guides. We have extensively researched the history of Kirirom mountain, conducted oral interviews with the royal family, former soldiers and residents about the 1960s and 1970s. We will also share with you the quiet beauty of the pine forest of the mountain. Kirirom Mountain is 2.5 hours drive from Phnom Penh. Travel with ZIN.

From the Killing Fields to the wide open views of Kirirom
Jun 2019 • Friends
Zin's Adventures brought us a unique Cambodian experience. The guides are knowledgeable and speak perfect English; they grew up in the US.
Just outside Phnom Penh on our way to the breezy hills of National Park Kirirom, we visited two former prisons and adjacent killing fields of the Khmer Rouge located in monasteries. It's a tough history and I wanted to know more about it. The guides had many details to share. These places still transcend the dismal horror of it...
The difference with the cool mountain breeze and the pine tree forests of Kirirom couldn't be bigger. For the first time in Cambodia I had to wear a jacket while visiting the old palaces and villas of King Sihanouk and walking around in the pine forest. The guides led us to these unique places and shared many interesting stories about the buildings and what happened in these mountains over the decades.
The view at the end of the tour was breathtaking. As far as the eyes could see there were only valleys and mountains covered with trees, topped with blue skies and white clouds while the sun was going down. Amazing tour for a different Cambodian experience.

Stories that give you goosebumps
Jun 2019 • Friends
Zin's adventure itself is already a beautiful story: Khmer deportees from the States who are trying to build a new future in a country that seems similar yet so foreign to them. By overcoming this, they research and go out to collect the most interesting stories, spots and views. This is not just a tourist tour, this is an experience to understand the complexity of Cambodia better. The tour included two temples - who are also killing fields and torture chambers- , lunch, two King Sihanouk villas at Kirirom, a small trek through a battlefront and a breathtaking view. On the way back to Phnom Penh we had a good meal as well.

Jimmy, Nin, Buck and Looney where absolutely lovely as guides and company. The driver drove swiftly yet safe. And the rest of the organisation (Maria and Brad) made sure we were taken care of when it came to food, snacks, drinks and other requests. They even made a special stop at the Coconut School when we passed by. I had a wonderful King's Mother day. Would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn more about the complex and painful history. Cambodia is truly the Kingdom of Wonder, and these guys give you all the wondrous hidden spots.
