Introducing Patrick Chase – General Manager of Destination Asia Cambodia

Hailing from the UK, Patrick joined the Destination Asia team as General Manager of Destination Asia Cambodia in November. Raised in Hong Kong, he has which gave him a lifelong passion for travel and in particular Asia.

After a spell in Australia and 10 years working with some of the UK’s leading tour operators, Patrick booked a flight to Cambodia where it was love at first sight – and it wasn’t long before he made the move permanent. Having run a DMC in Phnom Penh for three years, Patrick worked as Director of Sales for a leading luxury travel firm in Bangkok but was unable to resist the call back to Cambodia when an opportunity arose to manage Destinations Asia’s office in Siem Reap. “Cambodia is a special place for me and for most of the people who are lucky enough to visit. The magnificent monuments of Angkor are of course reason alone to visit Cambodia, but it is the country’s more recent history combined with the Khmer people’s continuing renaissance which continues to cast its spell.”
