Monika Rath

Cruise Manager

Born and raised in Phnom Penh, Monika began her career as a reservation and tour operator for a local travel agency in Phnom Penh in 2003. She joined Destination Asia in October 2005. She quickly developed a strong interest in the cruise sector and even though initially this was a challenging task in unfamiliar territory, Monika was motivated to bring in new creative ideas and use all of her experience in order to satisfy expectations – and even welcome guests personally at the pier.

Monika loves to travel and share culture, traditions and experiences. She was promoted to the position of cruise manager in 2008 and strongly believes that the most important thing is to make sure people visiting Cambodia thoroughly enjoy their stay and return home with wonderful memories. For Monika, the best reward while taking care of cruises and our guests is to hear them say during their stay: “I Love Cambodia.”
