Hello, I’m Kong from Cambodia

Angkor Wat, Siem Reap

Hi! I am Kong, a boy from countryside of Siem Reap, Cambodia. Now I’m working in Hospitality Industry. I’m very busy with studying and working. Be a Working-Student is not easy.

If you ask me “Why I decided to go for Tourism \ Marketing ( Hospitality) ?

This is a very interesting question. Well, there are three reasons that I decided to go for Tourism and Hospitality.

First, of course traveling. I don’t know that I will stay in Cambodia the whole life. I want to get to know other’s lifestyle, their culture, environment and how is the different of people from each side.

Second, it teaches people in professional manner, attitude, flexibility, patience and how to deal with problems. It is a great feeling when you meet good customers but it will make you crazy, if you meet difficult guests.

Third, I am Cambodian Ambassador, so this is a great opportunity to bring Cambodia to the world. I know not many people know what is Cambodia.

With best regards,

Kong

          Hi Robin,

          Greeting From Cambodia.

          I’m sure that you’ve been to a lot of Modern Country but if you could come to Visit Cambodia, a Country of Culture and History, it’s another new experience.

          Thank you for interesting.

    Same here! This sounds crazy good!
    Be careful what you say, Kong! I will take you at your word. 😉
    I always wanted to have a personal tour guide one day. Even better to have one who is an original Cambodian.
    Besides of the highlights you can see insider tips too.

    I offer the same if you ever decide to check the german lifestyle and culture. It’s very different but there are also a lot of great places to see 🙂

    How big is tourism in Cambodia? Are many travelers around your country?

    Looking forward to your respond 🙂

      Hi Laura,

      It’s my pleasure to share Tourism Destination of Cambodia to you and others.

      There are not many Tourist in Cambodia yet as what i mentioned not many people know what’s Cambodia.
      Some of the tourist asked me: IS CAMBODIA A PART OF THAILAND ? I Said: NO, WE ARE INDEPENDENT COUNTRY.

      We attracted 4,210,165 tourist in 2013, 4,502,775 tourist in 2014 and 4,775,231 tourist in 2015, this is just a small amount compare to other ASEAN country ( nearly 30 million tourist in Thailand for 2015 ).

      When you come and contact me i will be happy to arrange a tour for you.

      With best regard,

      Your Cambodian Friend
