TRUSTED TRAVEL EXPERTS Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam
An Oxford-trained physicist, Andy Booth traded London for Siem Reap nearly ten years ago, intending to improve Cambodia’s educational system; the best way to earn funds to do so, he wagered, was to dive into the country’s burgeoning tourism industry. Today, 100% of ABOUTAsia’s profits are plowed into local education, mainly through purchasing school supplies and paying the salaries of English teachers. Assisted by Ethan Crowley, an American raised in Northeast Cambodia (with the perfect Khmer to prove it), Andy excels at helping travelers connect with both leading academics and friendly locals in Cambodia and Laos, while avoiding the tourist crowds. He’s even done surveys to measure minute-by-minute tourist flow around the Angkorian ruins, using the data to calculate the timing and routing that will make for the least congested experience. When Andy recommends a dish in a restaurant, it’s because he ate there on Wednesday and it was superb—not because it won some award a year ago. He holds the post of British Honorary Consul and wrote the well-regarded Angkor Guidebook, a coffee-table-worthy tome. He can also arrange seamless travel throughout Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam, as well as layovers in Hong Kong, Bangkok, and Singapore.
