The secret of our success?Our Team
“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.”

Founder & CEO
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.
