- Best time to travel to Cambodia
Tourist season runs from November to March, but Cambodia is warm throughout the year and temperatures do not go below 20C. If you prefer lesser crowds, opt to travel between May to early October
- Cambodia Culture and Greetings
Cambodians are a mixture of Hinduism and Buddhism. The country’s golden age between the 9th and 14th Century is better known as the Khmer Empire era. During this time Cambodia achieved unparalleled achievements in the arts and architecture and Angkor Wat is your perfect example
When you greet someone, press your hands together in front of your chest.
- Drinks & Food
The basis of any Cambodian meal is rice, served either sticky or jasmine rice grown in the many paddy fields. Noodle soup is very common, and you will find that French food is still readily available. Don’t be surprised to find a coffee and “baguette sandwich” snack option. Roadside street food stalls are fun to try but rather sticks to the busy stalls serving piping hot foods
Fresh Coconut Juice: a refreshing and popular drink
Beer: Angkor and Anchor are the largest type of lagers served
- Discover your environment
Taxi hire is available in all major cities. They are not metered so fix the rate in advance. Tips will be appreciated by the driver. Not to be missed is a ride in a tuk-tuk.
Locals rarely tip, however, tourist like to add 10% which is appropriate especially in restaurants where no service charge is added to the bill
- Local interesting meals:
- Babor: Rice porridge with chicken broth
- Kralan: Sticky rice flavoured with sugar, beans and grated coconut steamed inside a Bamboo pole
- Mee Katang: Cantonese styled wild rice cooked with meat and vegetables served with an oyster sauce
Home of the mystical Angkor Wat (one of the wonders of the world), Cambodia is a romantic and honeymoon destination that is full of history and beauty.
Be sure to taste some local dishes as the food is something not to be missed; good food combined with friendly and helpful locals makes for a pleasant holiday for everyone.
Couples on a romantic vacation will enjoy the adventure of visiting such an exotic location — just that little bit outside of your comfort zone. But not to worry, Cambodia is home to some of the most luxurious accommodation around.
Immerse yourself in popular locations like Siem Reap and Phnom Penh, where the history and the culture are so thick you can grab it with your hands. Cambodia is a great choice as a destination for a loved-up short break or a romantic getaway, particularly when combined with sojourns to Vietnam and Thailand, both nestled to either side.
