Dary in charge

Any visitor to Cambodia will know that motos and cyclos - usually hired for short trips around town - are a male-only domain, unless you take a trip to Kratie and Prey Veng. Bernjul reported on Lonely Planet's Thorntree messageboard that Miss Dary Saing (pictured right) is the only female motodop in Kratie, speaks very good English and will arrange tours around her local area. Meanwhile, in Prey Veng, there are around 150 working cyclos - cyclos are rarely seen beyond the outskirts of Phnom Penh - and there's at least one woman cyclo driver. If you know of more, please leave a comment. If you're looking for a reliable male motodop, click here.

If you write here about Dary and use my foto I think it would be fair to public at least her mailadress so travellers have the chance to contact her. So if someone want to see Kratie Province:
darykratie@yahoo.com
