Six things you've got to do in Cambodia
1. Get up super early to watch the sun rise over Angkor Wat. Holidays are all about lie-ins we hear you say? No way! If you want to see the best a destination can offer, some 5am starts are a must. Watching the sun suddenly break free and dazzle the temples of Angkor is just incredible. With a fiery halo, spectators are often awed into silence and Angkor shines in all her glory. Remember, you’re a foreigner to the locals so ditch the make-up and set off for Angkor early.
2. Pay a very humbling visit to the Killing Fields. Cambodia’s tragic history is paid homage to with the Killing Fields, a mass grave of victims killed in the Khmer Rouge program. A mere 40 years ago, the effects of this harrowing example of history are still evident with thousands of visitors flocking to the Fields to pay their respects and hang bracelets on the bamboo fences surrounding the graves.
3. Get lost in a night market. Siem Reap is home to some massive night markets boasting over 600 stalls collectively. If you're after a traditional souvenir, look no further than the markets. Often cheaper than retail and offering bags of opportunities to get to know locals, it’s quite possibly the best way to shop!
4. Visit the Lonely Tree Café. Serving delectable Cambodian cuisine and unique handicrafts, the café was created by a local charity supporting locals with disabilities and vulnerable children. In the heart of Battambang, the café is designed in true Cambodian style with bamboo walls, tall ceilings and a wonderfully friendly atmosphere.
5. Tingle your taste buds. One of the best ways to truly experience a destination is to try some traditional local cuisine. Be brave – we know you want to. Cambodia’s popular dish is amok trey, a fish curry served delicately in a banana leaf. For those feeling adventurous, eat authentically.
6. Take a ride on the Bamboo train. In Battambang, take a trip on the locals’ handmade railway made purely from bamboo and generated by a small electric engine. Built to replace the irregular one passenger service a week train through the small town, locals took matters into their own hands and created this exciting alternative.
