Home to Angkor Wat, the eighth wonder of the world, Cambodia is a striking country worth visiting as much for its people as for its culture.

Home to Angkor Wat, the eighth wonder of the world, 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 off their list and moving on. Cambodia is home to so much more. Be one of the people that explores Phnom Penh with its rough charm, Koh Rong Samloem with its endless, undeveloped white sand beaches, or the Cardamom Mountains, a wildlife rich rainforest that was once a stronghold for the Khmer Rouge, which fewer than 1,000 tourists experience a year.

Guest Review: Ultimate Vietnam and Cambodia: Be Ready for Adventure!

Guest Review: Ultimate Vietnam and Cambodia: Be Ready for Adventure!
Bob and Judy traveled with us to SE Asia on our Ultimate Vietnam and Cambodia trip . They have traveled extensively but wanted to finally make it to a part of the world that loomed so large in their past. After days spent exploring Hanoi & Halong Bay, scootering around Ho Chi Minh, and watching the sun rise behind Angkor Wat we think it's safe to say the Reeds found everything they were looking for and more. Read a little more about their trip below:  What were the main reasons you chose this itinerary? This itinerary covered places we were interested in seeing.

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 or...

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 center....
