5, 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...

Krong Kampot, Cambodia
Cambodia's Kampot Pepper is regarded as one of the finest peppers in the world and it is said that there wasn't a decent restaurant in Paris that wouldn't have this decadent spice on the table. Parisian chefs considered it the best in the world...

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
Crowds may swarm upon it daily from sunrise onwards, but exposure hasn’t dulled the impact of the largest religious monument in the world. Commissioned by King Suryavarman II in the 12th century as the centerpiece of the mighty Khmer empire,...

Angkor Thom, Cambodia
Surprising you from every angle and surface. Angkor Thom is close to Angkor Wat.

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,...
Save Place
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...

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...

Corn is one of Cambodia’s staples and the country’s best corn – its sweetest and most delicious corn – is comes from nearby Battambang province, a couple of hours from Siem Reap. It therefore makes sense that you see steamed corn sold everywhere...
Save Place
The Cambodians are highly skilled at a long list of crafts, carving being one of them, as the beautiful bas-reliefs and intricate decoration on the temples in Angkor Archaeological Park attest. They continue to carve to this day, in both wood and...

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...

Angkor Archaeological Park, Siem Reap 17000, Cambodia
What's beautiful about the temples of Siem Reap is that each one is so unique. Angkor Thom is no exception, with its giant stone faces carved in all directions. It's breathtaking.

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....
