- About Angkor Wat, Tuk-Tuks and your Angkor Wat Tuk-Tuk Driver:
Let me introduce myself first. My name is Jin Sojeat – but you can call me MJ (short for “Mr Jeat”) - and I am one of Cambodia’s finest tuk-tuk drivers (honestly!). I live in Siem Reap (the town close to the Angkor temples - and probably the town you will be staying in for your visit). I therefore know this area very well. And I speak good English (and Cambodian, of course).
I have been a tuk-tuk driver for 8 years now and in that time have done hundreds of tours to Angkor Wat and the surrounding Angkor temples. There are over 100 temples and monuments from the Angkor period (covering 3000 square kilometres) around Siem Reap. Luckily a number of the best ones are reasonably close together, meaning you can see anywhere between 5-15 of these over a period of 1, 2 or 3 days (or even longer, if you have time) with the help of some transport.
I tailor trips to suit your schedule and interests, but everyone does the highlight of this area – a trip to Angkor Wat, the most famous and impressive temple here (and possibly worldwide). A day-trip to this temple and the surrounding ones will give you a great introduction to the amazing architecture and culture that flourished in this country between the 9th and 14th centuries AD. [For more information about Angkor Wat and Angkor history provided by Wikipedia, click HERE]. If you have more than one day, there are plenty more temples to see – and other attractions.
Siem Reap and Angkor are great places to use tuk-tuks (unlike, say Bangkok), because the distances between the temples are large (several kilometres sometimes, so it can get exhausting if you opt to cycle and then need some more energy to climb up and down the temples, pretending to be Indiana Jones!). Also, the roads here are in good condition - straight and flat. And the breeze from driving along keeps you cool (it gets hot here). Much better than being stuck on a tour bus. Also, there is little traffic on the roads between the temples. So, if you have never been on a tuk-tuk, this is the place to try it!
I’ll drop you off at the best temples, you take as long or as short a time as you want at each one and I’ll be waiting for you at the entrance to take you to the next one. It’s that simple.
