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. But Cambodia is home to so much more in vibrant cities rich with history both ancient and modern, pristine white sand beaches, and passionate welcomin...

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. Our guide handed the man some coins and two very charred pouches were handed over, still steaming hot from the fire. Inside I found a perfectly crisp, golden brown lump of sticky rice. I was amazed and inspired by the taste and texture of this treat and decided I needed to find a way to make it at home. 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...

Angkor Wat Voted #1 on Ultimate Travel List

Angkor Wat Voted #1 on Ultimate Travel List
The long established travel guide Lonely Planet recently published the "Ultimate Travel Guide," their list of the 500 best places on the planet. While it certainly seems like an impossible question, LP is probably among the best to take on the challenge!  The book is a compilation of the 500 most unmissable sights and attractions in the world, ranked by Lonely Planet's global community of travel experts. Big name mega-sights such as the Eiffel Tower and the Taj Mahal battle it out with lesser-known hidden gems for a prized place in the top 10, making this a comprehensive bucket list! As the program director of Asia I could not have agreed more or been happier with what they picked for the #1 spot: Angkor Wat.  I've had the good fortune to visit Angkor Wat more than once and it never fails to amaze. If anything, this mega complex seems to...

Luxury Camping in an Angkorian Temple Complex

Luxury Camping in an Angkorian Temple Complex
Banteay Chhmar is a group of villages in northwestern Cambodia, just 20 km from the Thailand border. Currently among the top-listed sites for nomination to UNESCO’s World Heritage List, Banteay Chhmar (The Citadel of the Cats) is one of the great architectural masterpieces of Southeast Asia and the Khmer Kingdom’s epic Angkorian Period. The vision of Global Heritage Fund’s Banteay Chhmar Conservation Training Project is "to save the last great Angkorian Temple in Cambodia that remains unstudied, unconserved and unprotected and in doing so hand back the conservation of their heritage to the Cambodian people." Community involvement in the conservation project is integral to its success and ‘’Visit Banteay Chmar" is a community-based tourism organization that is helping to make this happen. This CBT offers local, English-speaking guides who lead detailed temple tours, boat trips and community tours. Other services enable visitors to explore the local area, including a silk...
