Our three-day temple visit in Siem Reap with Mr. Navuth Ou was arranged by one of my four travel companions, Larc (of Cozy Living PH), during a time when we
were trying so hard to cram three countries into a 9-day itinerary. The Facebook
referrals/ reviews really came in handy that he found Mr. Pen Soktear and
his cousin, Mr. Navuth. None of us was exactly sure about what we wanted to do in
Siem Reap (of course aside from visiting Angkor Wat) when we kept in touch with
Mr. Navuth that day but his accommodating aura (on Facebook) and acceptable
command of English resulted in a structured 3-DAY itinerary and later on, fun
touring days in Cambodia.

About Mr. Navuth Ou
Evidently, Mr. Navuth is among the experienced Tuk-tuk
drivers in Cambodia. He knows the where, when, and how of the Angkor Temples
that we were able to catch the perfect sunrise and sunset, enjoy taking photos
and walk around the temples without being jammed into an overwhelming number of
By the way, Mr. Navuth is celebrating his birthday today. Aside
from a kind greeting, I also want to point out his good qualities as a tuk-tuk
driver/ guide in case he is unaware — he converses English adequately that his knowledge
of Khmer history made us appreciate each temple that we visited; he is approachable,
friendly and is willing to answer all our inquisition; he photographs well; he
is generous enough to let us consume more than 3 bottles of cold drinking water
in hot days — all these plus his comfortable, rain equipped tuk-tuk complemented
an amazingly memorable time!

would engage in their services if ever I find myself in Cambodia
