Our Story

Cambodian Pride Tours is a local tour agency which was started by English speaking university students SITHY and THAUNG who are local residents, grew up and went to school in the countryside. From this experience we know the area very well. We have developed projects to help and support local families and the community both directly (home-stays) and indirectly (promoting the endangered Mekong dolphins).

We are local residents and no-one knows the region especially northeast area quite like us, as no other company has explored in such depth to the real life of Cambodian people.

By choosing Cambodian Pride Tours, you will get a good value for the price and we assure you that we make every possible effort to make your trip an experience of a lifetime. 

about-us

First Company in Kratie

We are the expert in Eco-tourism adventure along the Mekong River. Our slogan is: “See the real Cambodia” and we are a passionate group of professionals working together since 2006. With devotion to excellence, CPT has been providing quality experiences in the Mekong Region for nearly a decade, becoming a leading operator for travel and adventure services in the areas. We offer international standard amenities while guiding travelers to natural beauty and cultural treasures throughout Cambodia.

We are not a sales agent; being the first local travel experts in the region we plan, advice and lead your adventure and expedition trip in Cambodia.

We aim to:

  • Use locally owned infrastructure on our tours where possible.
  • Spread the financial benefits amongst local people and operators.
  • Provide employment and leadership opportunities for local people.
  • Respect our customs and culture.
  • Make every trip an authentic experience.
  • Limit the physical impact of trips in all destination communities-particularly sensitive natural and cultural environments.
  • Provide support to organisations and local communities visited and opportunities for travellers to interact with local people.
  • Give our travellers the best possible value, enjoyable and safe trips.

SITHY HENG

heng-chan-sithy

I live in Kratie. In the beginning of 2007, I completed a local tour guide training program. My main motivation is my deep interests in the nature and wildlife of my country Cambodia. Later, I graduated at the University of Management and Economics, majoring in marketing management in October, 2010. Over the years, I have taken many individual travelers and tour groups around Cambodia to show them many different aspects of Cambodian culture. So there is more to see and experience in Cambodia, than Angkor Wat.

“Thaung and I started Cambodian Pride Tours in 2006 with a passion to get travellers off the beaten track to uncluttered areas along the beautiful Mekong River, to surrounding mountains, forest and waterfalls. As we are local residents, we grew up and went to school in the countryside. From this experience, we know the area very well and we take great pride in our home and community. We wanted to share some of the special places we know and introduce our travellers to different cultures and ways of life. We also follow the Mekong Discovery Trail.

We want to develop our own community, help protect the rare fresh water Irrawaddy dolphin, and support another endangered species, the Mekong shoftshell turtle conservation project. Working as tour guides in eco-tourism has been a great experience for us. We have had the chance to meet many people from all over the world.

So far we have developed projects to help and support local families and the community both directly (home-stays) and indirectly ( promoting the endangered Mekong dolphins, … ). We wanted all travelers to have fun, have an authentic experience from our original tours with the difference, meet people, learn things, explore, and do stuff they could never do at home.”
