Why Travel to Cambodia?

Ruins and lake
Cambodia is a striking country worth visiting as much for its people as for its culture. Many people run through this country too fast, ticking Angkor Wat off their list and moving on.

They have traveled extensively but wanted to finally make it to a part of the world that loomed so large in their past.

Wild Cambodian Sticky Rice Recipe

Wild Cambodian Sticky Rice Recipe
For many years now I’ve been a lover of sticky rice, but on a recent trip to Cambodia I experienced a new take on this delicious dessert. In the streets of a very small and remote town, a man hovered over a large fire meticulously rotating stuffed banana leaves.

The ingredients and supplies needed for this sticky rice are as follows: 1 C Thai Glutinous Rice 1 C Canned Coconut Milk 1/3 C Organic Sugar 1 Bag Frozen Banana Leaves Toothpicks Aluminum Foil You will also need either a rice steamer or...
