‘Our Way’ is the way we believe you should be seeing the wonderful country of Cambodia.
This is quite a bold statement to make, why is ‘Our Way’ better than any other way?
Life is full of directions, go there, do that, eat there, see that. It is our belief that you should experience everything that Cambodia has to offer.
Normally, a person will take advice from someone with inside knowledge. It is normal to accept the word of someone with similar tastes and beliefs. Of course you are likely to agree with someone who respects the countries they visit and someone who recognises quality and value for money.
In Cambodia we are that somebody. We will make your Cambodia holiday the most memorable yet.
We know that your holiday is extremely valuable to you. We are here to listen and help you enhance your Cambodia holiday experience. At ‘See Cambodia Differently’ we run through all options with you over the phone or by e-mail. You choose the places you wish to visit and the activities that reflect your interests, we then suggest ideas, experiences and places that you might not have considered. We then work together to maximise your specified budget and assist you in creating your dream Cambodian holiday.
Once you have arrived in Cambodia we go through your Cambodia holiday itinerary again.
We introduce you to Your Cambodia holiday guides, who will be looking after you during your time in the country and make suggestions how to spend your free time. We live in Cambodia, and thus are best placed to recommend quality local restaurants and bars etc. In addition we can help you avoid the common tourist mistakes. We feel that this will reassure you, that you are getting the most out of your Cambodia holiday.You are in safe hands, whilst having the freedom to explore parts of Cambodia, under you own steam.
We use friendly local guides to enable you to see the real Cambodia. Their personal experiences and hopes for their future, will enable you to identify better with them. We believe in working with local communities helping to create a sustainable future, whilst at the same time provide a responsible travelling experience for you. Local projects are very high on our agenda, such as making a $10 donation to our charity of choice HUSK for every Cambodia holiday booked with us.
We are not a global operator, we specialise in what we know – Cambodia.
This is ‘Our Way’ and we would love it to be ‘Your Way’ also.
The See Cambodia Differently Story:
Eva and I both travelled to Cambodia at pretty much exactly the same time in 2003. However our paths did not cross until 4 years later whilst travelling through Central America. It seems natural now that we met whilst travelling and then made the decision to live and settle down somewhere different.
A lot of people ask ‘why did you choose Cambodia’ but this wonderful country really choose us. We have both been lucky enough to explore most parts of the world. However talking about our experiences on our arrival in Cambodia we instantly fell in love with the beautiful country and its people. A combination of these factors really made us feel welcome and at home.
After visiting Cambodia a number of times in 2007 we were amazed of how much there was to see and do. We soon realised that the vast majority of visitors did not experience the ‘real’ Cambodia. Most tour operators only offer whistle stop tours, mainly to Angkor Wat, missing out on the fantastic experiences that the rest of the country has to offer. There are relaxing beaches, exotic wildlife, remote retreats, city treats and exciting adventures, not to be missed.
So it was in the spring of 2008 that we decided to fill a gap in the Cambodia holiday market, that we though had been neglected. Usually when travelling, you only have the choice of booking your holiday with a larger agent. They then use a local ground handler to look after you when you arrive. Surely it is better to be booking your holiday with the same travel who then deals with your enquiry from the outset. It is even more important that they live in Cambodia and know everything that is going on.
We also noticed that people’s travelling habits are changing. Customers want a more intimate and honest travelling experience. They also require their own free time to explore and to reflect, rather than being told what to do and where to go all the time. We believe that the perfect holiday needs to have this balance.
Since then we have never looked back and we get to incorporate our love of travelling, our enthusiasm for adventure and our love of Cambodia, into building unique adventures for all of our guests, able to show them the absolute best of Cambodia Holidays.
