I landed in Siem Reap after a harrowing 23 hour `bus` ride which ended up being in the back of a speeding land rover with the luggage! I was dusty and tired and not really in the mood to be treated like a tourist. My friend I had met on the road had pre-arranged a tour before she left and she suggested I come along with her.
This was Chet, a warm, kind man, who listened to what you actually wanted to do, who took you off the beaten track to some of the less famous temples. He knew as much as you would ever want to know about Angkor Wat but also very practical things like how to avoid the crowds and where to go at what times. He sorted out all the tickets and the rickshaws, he was just brilliant.
We were with Chet for three days and he is a lovely person to be with. He made a beautiful place all the more memorable. I would recommend him to anybody.More
