What a gift to have met Panha, the owner of Ankor Cab! My husband reserved a tour by email before we left home but by the time the day rolled around for our trip, we had changed our minds about what we wanted to do. Panha was so gracious -- not only did he happily accommodate a change in our itinerary, he designed a custom tour that got us off the beaten track to everything we wanted to see, and some wonderful places we had never even heard about. Panha picked us up in a spotless, air-conditioned late model SUV, and we were off. Our first stop was a jungle temple that housed a giant gold reclining buddha, where I got a blessing from a monk. From there, we went to 1000 Lingas, where we saw an underwater temple of sculptured tiles embedded in the shallow river bottom. Then we stopped at a rural market, where everything was sold directly by the people who had caught or grown it themselves, on our way to a private boat tour through a fishing village out to a huge lake dotted here and there with floating homes and businesses (I tried my first fresh coconut water at a restaurant out there in the middle of the lake). After that, we went to an awesome waterfall where we took a swim. On the way back, Panha stopped at several roadside stands to show us local products. We got to taste a yummy sticky rice and bean dessert that had been woven into a little basket and steamed inside. Then we went to Banteay Srei temple and a local art gallery. After we finished our day touring, we went back to the hotel to clean up, and Panha returned a few hours later to drive us to a dance performance for which he had arranged tickets. Luckily, Panha had a couple of hours free the next morning and drove us to the airport. Not only is Panha a well-informed and charming host, he is terrific at organizing a truly one of a kind experience. We were so happy to find him - he really made our trip special. Thank you, Panha! We look forward to seeing you the next time -- Stacey and Clyde
