We booked tours in Cambodia and Vietnam through Mango Cambodia.
Cambodia was BY FAR the highlight of our month in South East Asia. First Bruce and then Warren worked with us to craft our ideal itinerary and identify fabulous boutique hotels.
Phnom Penh felt very different from Siem Reap, PP was more cosmopolitan, fast-paced, and clearly growing. Our guide, Sopea was excellent and really gave us a sense of the Cambodian pride and grass-roots efforts to create a better future for Cambodians. Highlights of our time in Phnom Penh included a cooking class, the Emerald Buddha, Wat Phnom, and the fantastic Monk's chant before lunch. Sunset on the Tonle Sap river boat was fantastic.
The absolute best part of this week was lunch with Sopea's family int he country - meeting his mother, seeing the charity school the family runs, and even an awkward ride in the horse cart - fabulous! I can't recommend Mango Cambodia enough.
From our initial contact to the transfer to the flight home we were treated like honored guests. For the reviewers who didn't think this was worth the money, I can't imagine how a full day with a professional guide including the overhead of the agency is worth any less than Mango's rates. In fact, we found the rates surprisingly reasonable for the personalized service.
Cheers to Mango Cambodia.
