- Historical & Cultural
Welcome to my beautiful country of Cambodia.
Let me introduce myself to you! My name is Nuon Chansarak. My family name is Nuon and Chan means Monday, the day I was born. Sarak is the first name that I am called, so please call me Sarak. I finished high school in Siem Reap in 1998, and in 1999 I started my first job in Raffles Grand Hotel in Siem Reap. I worked as a bartender and also as a waiter in the Food and Beverage department. Then two years later in 2001 I went to work in FCC in Siem Reap, the Foreign Correspondent Club. There my title was Bar Supervisor. Again, two years later in 2003 I moved to work in Victoria Angkor Hotel in Siem Reap where I was Bar Manager. Then two years later in 2005 I went to work in Hotel de La Paix, which now is the Hyatt in Siem Reap. Here I was Bar Manager again.
Then in 2006 I quit my job working in the hotel because I wanted to see the outside world. I took the exam to become a tour guide for Angkor so I could start my new job as an English speaking tour guide a year later. I have worked for hotels, guesthouses, and other tour agencies, giving tours to couples, families, and small and big groups alike to visit temples not only in Siem Reap but in other parts of Cambodia as well such as Phnom Penh, Battambong, Kampong Cham, Kampong Thom, Sihanukville, Preah Vihear, and others.
