The Detour
Don’t say no to the handheld fan offered at the entrance to Phare Circus, a big top 20 minutes from Hup Guan by tuk-tuk. The temperatures beneath the tent can be as hot as the show, an extravaganza that combines Cambodian culture and history, Khmer music, and Cirque du Soleil−like acrobatics. Performers are graduates of the Phare Ponleu Selpak school in Battambang, which offers underprivileged kids a chance to learn how to juggle, twist, jump, flip, and practically fly.

Get a Cambodian Buzz
Never mind that The Little Red Fox Espresso is run by two Aussies. The café is resolutely local, serving beans from Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia. Sip your iced lemongrass-and-ginger latte and ask your barista about the café’s monthly art exhibits and DJ sessions.

Uncommon Scents
Don’t miss the body and beard oils, scented with ingredients like ylang ylang, sandalwood and vetiver. But the real stars at Saarti, a planet-friendly skin-care and home decor shop, are the scented candles. Made from soy wax, they come in aluminum alms bowls traditionally used by monks to make offerings to the Buddha.

Where to Smell the Cheeses in Paris
Just walk into Barthélémy and breathe the air. The cheese smells so different from cheese in the United States—that’s how you’ll know you’re in Paris. I love this store. Be sure to ask for tastes; the service is as good as the selection.
