One of the things we liked best about our visit to the Angkor area in Cambodia was our tour guide Mr. Yous Sopanha. Mr. Sopanha was an absolutely wonderful guide during our recent two day tours of the Angkor area and its' temples. He holds a degree in history from Phnom Penh University and really brings the ruins to life. He also has a very compelling personal story, having survived the Khmer Rouge era in Cambodia.
Mr. Sopanha ensured that our group was informed, entertained, and hydrated, an important feature in the Cambodian heat. We toured Banteay Srei, Ta Prohm, Angkor Thom, Bayon and Angkor Wat as well as taking a boat trip to visit a floating village near Tonle Sap Lake. He also took us to visit the landmine museum in Siem Reap where I was moved to tears, realizing the horrific effects these devices have had on the local population.
Mr Sopanha will take care of you very well on your tours of the area and is also available for tours of other parts of Cambodia, i.e. Phnom Penh. We were only there for a couple of days but when we go back will be sure to book Mr. Sopanha as our guide.
When touring Angkor area temples, wear comfortable walking shoes, women should have clothing covering your knees and shoulders if you plan to climb the high temple at Angkor Wat, cameras, a bandana or small towel to wet and cool yourself comes in handy too.
Please contact Mr. Sopanha on Facebook if you wish to book his services.
