General Manager - Khiri Cambodia

Welcome to The Kingdom of Wonder!

A country restarted from scratch, Cambodia has the heritage, the history, the Angkor temples and a great example of a group of people who are bouncing back. In spite of what happened during the dark years of the Khmer Rouge these people are the kindest people you’ll meet. They really want visitors to experience their country. There are so many great opportunities to interact with the local people and learn about their culture and lifestyle, but also hear from first hand how they’ve have taken all the negative things and turned them into something really, really positive. Khmer people are passionate about their history and about how influential their culture once was. They’re proud of the mark their culture left in many of the surrounding countries.

From the amazing ancient Khmer ruins at Angkor — and beyond, Cambodia is a country with so much to offer. Personally, I recommend going beyond Angkor experiencing for example a homestay in Sambor Prei Kuk, the bustle of Phnom Penh, and the beaches and colonial ruins in the South.

One thing to bring – an open mind! Try the food, try to learn a few words in Khmer and put the time in at Angkor Wat, set aside a few days and really see it. Go to the beaches in the South and don’t be afraid to try eating the fried spiders!

Khiri-Travel-Cambodia-Meet-The-Team

Meet the team

In Cambodia, Khiri has a young, enthusiastic, highly-educated 15 member team working from offices in both Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. Jack Bartholomew, our British General Manager, is a travel enthusiast who landed in Cambodia after working in Laos’ tourism sector. Our Khmer staff hail from Phnom Penh, Kampong Cham, Siem Reap, Banteay Meanchey, and Kampot, and some have traveled internationally as well.

We pride ourselves on our high degree of destination, product, and supplier knowledge. We know the best restaurants, hotels, and transport companies in Cambodia by heart, and many of our team members possess exceptional training.

Linda Oum, our Deputy Manager, traveled to Japan to participate in a one-month ecotourism training with the support of JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency).

Linda used the sustainable ecotourism and community development knowledge she gained in Japan to found Isanborei homestay in Sambor Prei Kuk, which she coordinated via Khiri Reach (the non-profit arm of Khiri Travel). Linda’s homestay project is now one of the main tourist attractions in Kampong Thom and an example of Khiri values. Not only poverty has been reduced in the Kampong Thom commune as a result of income earned from homestay guests, but the project has also given our clients a chance to see and experience authentic local life in Cambodia.

Khiri’s Cambodia team cultivates a grassroots, family atmosphere, and no task is too big or too small—our team will do everything we can to ensure that our clients enjoy the journey of a lifetime when visiting Cambodia!

About Cambodia

Angkor Wat, constructed in the early 12th Century, is the largest religious structure in the world. The temple is so massive that its walls and moat appear in photos taken by space satellite. But Angkor Wat is one temple among a mindboggling complex of medieval structures—the stone remnants of the Khmer Empire that once ruled over Southeast Asia—scattered throughout modern Cambodia.
