TRAVEL TIPS

  • The easiest way to explore cities/towns in Cambodia is via tuk-tuk. They’re generally inexpensive, especially when compared to taxis, and are flexible enough to get through most traffic conditions.
  • Avoid riding elephants and/or visiting an animal park, as the animals are subjected to barbaric treatment.
  • Dress conservatively when visiting temples and temple complexes, and ensure your legs and shoulders are covered.
  • Cambodian (Khmer) cuisine is similar to Thai cuisine though with fewer spices. It also tends to be healthier than other Southeast Asian cuisine. The staple food is rice, which is served with almost every meal and noodles are also popular. A typical meal usually consists of a soup, a main dish (often curry, stir fry or salad) and dessert. Prahok (fermented fish paste) is used to flavour many dishes and coriander, mint leaves and lemongrass are popular herbs. Another popular dish is Amok, a curry made with fish, spices and coconut milk.
  • The official currency of Cambodia is the Cambodia Riel but USD is also widely accepted and sometimes preferred in larger stores and supermarkets.
