Imagine verdant rice fields, the vast Tonle Sap Lake and the
mighty Mekong River. It is then unsurprising that most local dishes
feature rice and fish! A perennial favourite is Fish Amok - a
creamy curry of coconut and lemongrass to match the culinary
delights of neighbouring Thailand. Many of the best restaurants are
found on Phnom Penh's riverfront whilst fearless foodies on
Cambodia holidays can snack on crickets and tarantulas!
The timeless temples of Angkor are the most impressive
collection of sites in Southeast Asia and attract many visitors on
Cambodian holidays. Stand awestruck as the sun rises and
illuminates the dramatic centrepiece of Angkor Wat. Marvel at the
ruins of the 12th Century temple of Ta Prohm, lying
unrestored with the massive roots of silk cotton trees growing
across its delicately carved doorways. Or imagine, as you walk
through the elegant galleries of Preah Khan, what it must have been
like in King Jayavarman VII's day, when it was the base for 100,000
officials and servants. With the addition of a helicopter, other
fascinating and far less visited temples can also be explored on a
Cambodia holiday. Having soaked up some of the most incredible
culture on earth, perhaps there will be time to feast the senses on
a private island hideaway.
