I spent 3 unforgettable days in Siem Reap in January 2012. I still can't believe how lucky I was to meet Mr.Pen and have him as my guide around Angkor Wat temples. Originally I planned to have a guide for 1 day for shot circuit temples only, but after such an impressive tour that Mr.Pen gave me on the Day 1, I just could not let him go and took him for the 2nd day to finish the big circuit temples.
He is unbelievably knowledgeable and talented man with a very strong spirit. He could tell me a story behind every single carving on every single wall in every single temple. He is like a walking encyclopedia about Buddhism, Hinduism and Khmer history. He is a hard-working man that does his job with heart. He is a very thoughtful person with whom you can hold a conversation on any topic and be amazed by the broadness of his knowledge.
I highly recommend Mr. Pen to anyone who wants to truly explore and understand the grandiosity of Angkor Wat and Khmer culture.
