My great friend Chenti – tuk tuk driver for the Angkor Wat temples


I have just spent 3 weeks with my tuk tuk driver Chenti in Siem Reap, Cambodia who is such a great friend. I have set up a site for him to try and get more work for him. He is my lead tuk tuk driver for my Digital Photography Holidays and a close personal friend. He is extremely reliable, courteous and totally trustworthy.

Chenti has such a great knowledge and passion for  his country and I personally recommend him. He was 3 when the Khmer Rouge took over and lost his parents and 4 of his brothers and sisters but has an amazing forgiving heart, though this part of his life will remain hidden until your trust is gained.

Please take a look at his site that I have made for him and share it wherever you can.

His telephone number in Cambodia is +855979126232

  1. Hello steve, it’s Mo’s mate Tom here. I often check out your blog looking for a bit of inspiration! Genuinely touched by this simple act of kindness. What a great thing to do. I’ve shared with as many people as I can in Japan. Tom

    • Hi Tom,
      Thanks, funny because today in Bangkok I bought a jacket and Mo said “that reminds me of the style of jacket that my friend Tom would choose”.
      Am trying to pass on more work for Chenti in a way I can some, thanks so much for sharing with your friends, very much appreciated. All the very best, Steve and Mo sends her love.

  2. Hi Stephen, He sounds like an amazing guy, what a story and a lovely thing to do for him. I hope he becomes the most in demand tuk-tuk driver in Siem Reap. 🙂 Enjoy the rest of your travels.

    • Thanks Louise,
      He is a great friend, the idea of setting up the page for him came to me and I hope it helps him loads too, he is such a gentleman and wow has he been through and seen lots in the Pol Pot era.
      Thanks again for the kind words, much appreciated.
