|What to eat |
The absolute king of Cambodian cuisine is rice, which we find in almost all the typical dishes of the country. To fully savor Cambodia's flavor, we suggest "amok", white rice with fresh fish, roasted with peanuts, eggs and coconut milk. In addition to being a typical dish, it stands out for its slightly spicy flavor.
Another traditional dish is the "Kuy Teav", a typical soup made with rice noodles and pork broth, soy sprouts and coriander complete the dish.
|Where stay |
Cambodia is a country of a thousand faces. Here you will find luxurious facilities for those who want to relax and stay by the sea; and the classic hotel facilities for all tastes: from hostels to hotels and guesthouses. We point out that the level of the hostels is very spartan therefore for a quality-price question4 star accommodations are suggested.
