Krong Battambang, Cambodia
Battambang, Cambodia isn't famous for much really - but what it lacks in sights, it makes up for in beautiful rural countryside and hospitable, kind people. Exploring the area on the back of a tuk tuk proved to be quite an experience as well -...
Samdach Sothearos Blvd (3), Phnom Penh, Cambodia
I was wandering around Phnom Penh at dusk and noticed a huge building magnificently lit up down the street so I walked over and was instantly in the middle of thousands of people - in front of the Royal Palace 2 blocks from my hotel. The King died...
Cycling from Battambang, Cambodia toward the Thai border, I came across a mother and her son. She wanted me to take his photo; he, on the other-hand, just wanted to be cuddled. Cycling trips allow you to come into contact with locals, to stop and...
Krong Siem Reap, Cambodia
To be standing in the Angkor Wat complex was a dream of mine. I couldn't believe how old it really was and that it was still there! It was amazing to be able to walk inside and see all the reliefs but, what really made this a special experience...
Cambodian shadow-puppet theatre, known as Sbaek, is performed at a number of venues around Siem Reap, however, the best shows are by Cambodian Living Arts at the beautiful 18th century Wat Bo Pagoda. It's said that this medieval art form dates...
717 Street 14, Krong Siem Reap 12000, Cambodia
Beyond Unique Escapes is arguably Siem Reap's best tour company, offering an array of excellent tours to the temples and villages. If you only do one tour in Siem Reap, this is the one I recommend. I've done it a few times and it's one of my...
812, Kampong Phluk, Cambodia
Kompong Phluk is a floating village located in the middle of Cambodia's largest lake, Tonle Sap. The term “floating” is a bit misleading: the houses are actually built on very tall stilts around 8 meters high. During the rainy season,...
Hap Guan St, Krong Siem Reap, Cambodia
Located on the gritty backstreet of Hup Guan, an emerging coffee sipping-cum-shopping street that remains something of a secret, the Little Red Fox Espresso makes Siem Reap's best coffee. No question. An early opener, the cool little cafe with a...
Krong Siem Reap, Cambodia
The most quintessential Cambodian souvenir must be the checked cotton krama that you will see around the necks, heads or waists of every Cambodian you meet. Cambodians like to boast that the krama has a dozen different uses -- some clever, some...
This breezy new al fresco coffee shop located at the Ecole du Bayon pastry school in Siem Reap looks into the school’s gleaming kitchen so you can watch the dedicated young cooks piping cream and decorating cakes. The pastry school was established...
River Road West, ក្រុងសៀមរាប, Cambodia
The Cooks in Tuk Tuks cooking adventure offered by River Garden hotel differs from the others in that it begins with a trip by tuk tuk to one of Siem Reap's most popular Buddhist shrines to learn how to make offerings. Next is a visit to a lively...
Old Market Bridge, Krong Siem Reap, Cambodia
The Passage is a lively pedestrian street in the heart of the Old Market District of Siem Reap lined with restaurants, pubs, hotels and galleries. I highly recommend the restaurant Chamkar for its Cambodian-French style vegetarian dishes that...
Ko Lanta Yai, Ko Lanta District, Krabi, Thailand
For my money, this is the closest thing to a postcard-perfect paradise as there is in this world. Happy little clouds (-Bob Ross), blue-green ocean, mammoth limestone peaks, longtail boats swaying in the breeze, and an unending tropical sandscape....
