Meet the Team

From Beyond Angkor
Jump to navigation Jump to search
Beyond Angkor is the brainchild of Allan Lim, who had originally thought of creating an online database of Cambodian related historical sites way back in the early 2000s, however did not have the technical know-how and didn't know where to start. Fast forward 20 years on, after meeting like-minded would be explorers online, he decided to give it another crack. Here we are at the start of 2021 in the middle of a pandemic as we undertake this massive privately funded project.

We hope that with the release of Beyond Angkor to the public, that the Beyond Angkor team will grow. We would love to welcome you into the Beyond Angkor family.

Founder and would be explorer

Allan first became interested in Cambodia and Angkorean history after researching about the history of Cambodia prior to his family trip at the end of high school. After visiting his parents homeland for the very first time in 2001, he fell in love with the place and didn't want to return back home. Over the next twenty odd years Allan returned fifteen times. Over the years his trips to Cambodia evolved from visiting tourist sites to adventure filled off the beaten paths Beyond Angkor to doing a variety of different philanthropy work such as giving out school supplies to primary school kids, raising funds for a local orphanage, to giving out daily staples to rural villagers, building 260+ water wells and building a library for a rural primary school in Siem Reap.
