If you are looking for friendly, safe, trustworthy and reliable tuk tuk drivers in Phnom Penh, or in Siem Reap and Angkor Wat, then please read on...
Suis a dei (‘Hi’ in Khmer), my name is Scott Burnett. I’m the owner of an educational travel organisation called Pacific Discovery. I’ve been visiting Cambodia annually since 1998. For a number of years I have been using the same fantastic tuk tuk drivers in Phnom Penh and in Siem Reap and can highly recommend them to you. They are both scrupulously honest and hard working and will charge you fairly for transport.
If you’re flying into either Siem Reap or Phnom Penh, Tet or Mong can meet you at the airport, deliver you to your hotel and arrange a local Cambodian SIM card for your phone. They can then chauffer you around the area, and help you arrange pretty much anything.
Mr Tet in Siem Reap
|I first met Tet in 2001 when I was running around Siem Reap looking for moto drivers to take our group to the temples after our previous moto wrangler had disappeared. Tet quickly rounded up a posse of drivers and after observing his professionalism, we’ve used him ever since to organise airport pick-ups, get SIM cards, change $$, baby-sit our son, and arrange numerous tuk-tuk posses for our groups. Over dozens of trips, Tet and his friends have never once been late to pick up our groups for a sunrise at the Angkor temples.
Tet works hard to support his mother, sister and niece. He would like to get married but needs to save more money – getting married in Cambodia is expensive.
Tel: +855 17 292023
Best way to contact Tet, is to text/SMS to his mobile number (above) - or send an email and text him to check his email.
Mr Mong in Phnom Penh
Mong is based at Phnom Penh's Toul Sleng museum and we’ve been using him since 2004. Mong arranges groups of tuk tuks to take our groups around Phnom Penh, including airport pick ups and drop offs. He can also arrange pretty much anything else you require - from bus rental to other cities, to tracking down elusive NGO offices in the maze of Phnom Penh's back streets.
I once left my expensive camera on a bus that Mong had arranged for our group between Phnom Penh and Battambang. When I discovered my loss, the bus was already on its way back to Phnom Penh. Mong arranged for a friend of his to deliver the camera to me in Siem Reap two days later – awesome!
