Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor, the iconic luxury hotel on the doorstep of ancient Khmer archeological sites in Cambodia, has introduced a new fleet of electric tuk-tuks, providing an innovative and eco-friendly transport option for guests.


The sleek ONiON T1 vehicles feature a white exterior shell that shields passengers from the hot tropical sun and rainy downpours, while their sturdy suspension and ample legroom ensure a smooth ride for those exploring the vibrant city of Siem Reap and its surroundings, including the UNESCO World Heritage wonder of Angkor Wat.

The Raffles Suite has been used by archeologists and adventurers since 1932.


“Sustainability is top of mind in everything we do at Raffles Grand Hotel d’Angkor – from sourcing local ingredients in our restaurants and eliminating single-use plastics to other initiatives aimed at reducing our carbon footprint – and we are thrilled to be able to offer our guests these eco-friendly tuk-tuk passenger vehicles,” said General Manager Joseph Colina.


The new tuk-tuks are manufactured by ONiON Mobility, a green transport company headquartered in the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh. The partnership between Raffles and ONiON underscores a shared commitment to environmental sustainability, the hotel said.

Earlier this year, the hotel unveiled a series of exclusive ‘Curated Journeys’ offering guests new ways to experience Siem Reap’s rich culture and history. These include a Bespoke Temple Dinner; a Lost Civilisations of Angkor by Vespa tour; a Meet the Elephants of Angkor visit; a Khmer Culinary Discovery class; a Siem Reap Art Tour; and the Reflections of Angkor photography course. Several of these excursions will now be available via the new electric tuk-tuks.
