    Description

    Greetings!

    My name is Rye and I'm an expat/"transplant" in Cambodia since 2013 -- with a few breaks here and there, hehe.

    I have travelled around the world and lived in 5 countries. I speak the five languages of the 5 countries I've lived in: English, Filipino, Espanol, Portugues and Khmer.

    Most recently I went and started a hostel in the world's most beautiful island -- Palawan, Philippines.

    As the itch of travelling got to me again, after two years of building and running the hostel, I realised that I missed travelling so much, talking to so much travellers!

    And so I've come back to Cambodia where I first moved in 2013. My family has a small store here and I've decided to come back because living in Phnom Penh allows me to travel easier given that Thailand and Vietnam are so near.

    I would need help in the simplest things but it would have the most impact: retail help; interior design and/or architectural help to improve the layout/flow of the store; audiovisual and social media help; handyman help; or any you could suggest :) We are quite open-minded. And the best park is we only need you for three hours a day :) Nothing too long!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I'm a traveller at heart, and I've lived in 5 countries and speak five languages. I have visited over 25 countries. I see things from the travellers point of view, and the local's as well :)

    (Definitely a book that I recommend as you travel Asia would be Lee Kwan Yeu's "From third world to first world." It's a fascinating account of South East Asian history from an inspiring leader's point of view.)

    The cultural exchange learned would be the following:
    I give a personal tour on your first day, so that you know the history, local customs, travel tips, where to eat, local delicacies, and everyday fascinating things that make the place memorable, and more importantly, gives you the freedom daily to explore where you want to go.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Too many things to do in Phnom Penh, but my top favorite is going to the independent cinema named "The Flicks."

    This is basically the "anti-Hollwood" cinema that shows indies and award-winning flicks. They show great movies about the history of Cambodia too. Sometimes it's not the quantity of recommendations you give...it's the quality :)
