Reliable Driver in Siem Reap

I made a trip to Siem Reap one week ago with tons of happiness. Visiting the temples at the best time of the day escaping from the crowds, adventuring into the relics exploring the concealed scenes, experiencing the local culture with local people, the trip marked something unique. I was lucky that I had a reliable local driver - Pros. He is honest, friendly, fluently English speaking, flexible with your own itinerary, and on top of all, charges a reasonable price. It warmed my heart to have him as my local companion throughout my trip.

Pros Bou

Pros' full name is Pros Bou. He drives Tuk Tuk (from 2005) and car (from 2009) with years of experience, always offering you a steady and safe journey. To improve his own language skills, he spent two years to learn English and is now learning Chinese at night school as well. He is a good example of local young people who love their jobs and strive for a bright future.

I booked a three-day tour with Pros, he offered me free transportation between the airport and the hotel. The itinerary above is an example only, Pros is very flexible. Do feel free to ask him for a quotation based on your customized itinerary. The price will not vary much from the benchmark above.

  1. Hi Antonio,

    I would like to inquire regarding the tuk tuk service that you rented when you were in siem reap. Is the rate you mentioned in your blog inclusive of petroleum? No other fees that we need to pay? And how about the tip? Would you recommend a reasonable amount to give?


    1. Hi Martheena,

      The rate includes petroleum. No other fees to pay. I would recommend a tipping range from 10% to 30% depending on your satisfaction.
