Our history

In 1992, UNESCO declared the temples of Angkor as World Heritage Site.
In 1993, we opened one of the first guesthouses in Siem Reap.

So we are proud to belong to the pioneers of tourism in Siem Reap / Angkor.

In 2008, we celebrate our 15th anniversary. This is a long period in Cambodia, where the tourism sector is still very young. Due to a high increase of tourists coming to our guesthouse, we have expanded and renovated Ta Som Guesthouse.

The new opening was in September 2008. So we are proud to offer you the best service as you know it in a new decorated and warm, charming atmosphere.


Our concept

From the beginning, our concept was to combine a Khmer guesthouse as a basis for discoveries in Angkor with tours services.

TA SOM TOUR SERVICES was one of the first agencies to offer organized tours to foreign tourists, long before the mass tourism era began here. Since these times, our tour program has developed and expanded a lot.

We are proud to be now the specialist for hidden trails in Angkor region. With TA SOM TOUR SERVICES, our guests discover cultural landscapes and areas, that most other tourists will certainly not see.


Sustainable development

Ta Som Guest House & Tours Services is aware of the high responsibility we have towards future generations. Our aim is to work in the tourism sector with respect to the concepts of sustainable development and the Agenda 21.


As a pioneer in the tourism sector of Siem Reap / Angkor, we observe the long way that is needed until a thinking in long-term developments is more expanded. We want to fulfill tourist interests while preserving the culture and environment of our beloved Angkor so that these interests can be met not only in the present, but in the indefinite future! Ta Som Guest House & Tours Services also eagers to support local initiatives and charitable organizations (see below).


Ta Som Guesthouse encourages its guests to see more of Siem Reap / Angkor than just the temples.

A lot of information is available and guided tours to several charitable organizations can be arranged for guests who want to experience more. Ta Som Guesthouse is a Love Card Accommodation and supports the White Bicycle project.

 

The White Bicycles is a local charity providing a bicycle rental service for hotels and tourists in Siem Reap. Proceeds from the rental service go directly to provide micro funding to aid projects in the rural area of Siem Reap.
