After seeing the docu "Samsara" I realized I wanted to see the gorgeous landscapes in Cambodia, and specifically Siem Reap where the magnificent Angkor Wat can be found. I went with my parents and brother over Xmas vacation 2012 and it was honestly one of the most memorable trips I've taken out of the 35 countries I've visited. One of the single reasons the adventure was so perfect was because a friend recommended a tour guide/driver named Chamnan. Talk about the perfect guide - his walking tours of the temples were filled with lots of explanation and detail and his attitude couldn't have been more warm and friendly. His sister teaches cooking classes on the side and Chamnan hosted us on Christmas Eve at his house where his sister taught us to cook some 10 dishes. When I wanted to see an Apsara show, but wanted really good seats to an already sold out show, he figured out a way to bring me to the venue and make dinner reservations in a different way so I could actually get in and secure great seats. What can I say? If you're going to Siem Reap, you must find Chamnan.
