Hi! I’m Soviet (my family name is Ty) and I am the owner/operator of Angkor Vision Tour. I was born in 1986 (the Year of the Tiger) in a small village about 20 KM east of Siem Reap town. I belong to a very large and complicated family who are farmers – they mainly grow rice and some other crops.
My mother has been married twice, through force of circumstance. She and her first husband had a girl and a boy – my half-sister and half-brother. Her husband was killed during Pol Pot’s regime of terror – the Cambodian genocide! My mother eventually married his younger brother and produced three offspring – my two older sisters and me.
When I was a very young boy of five, my father took his ox cart to collect firewood in the forest and accidentally stepped on a Chinese landmine, losing his right leg. His whole life changed in an instant! He suffered immense pain from that day onwards, but continued to work until his untimely death due to cancer, at the young age of 55, in June 2013.
EDUCATION & QUALIFICATIONS
After finishing high school I completed a bachelor degree and a course with the Ministry of Tourism and APSARA (Authority for the Protection and Management of Angkor and the Region of Siem Reap). After working in hotel management for two years I achieved my goal of becoming a tour guide in 2009. I love this job because it offers independence, freedom and a real opportunity to show foreign travellers around my country with its unique culture, civilization and history.
