Khmer Food; Phnom Penh, Cambodia

What has eight legs, is deliciously crispy and served with a side of chili and shoyu for 300 riels?

Tarantulas. It’s okay, really.

But spiders aren’t the only things deep-fried in Phnom Penh. Khmer food has just about anything that crawls or jumps is on the menu including crickets, beetles, grubs, and grasshoppers.

Eating insects might seem like a locals gimmick to earn extra coins from brave travelers, but there is more than meets the eye.


A Three Day Tour of Angkor Wat Cambodia

The day begins at dawn as you head to the ancient ruins of Angkor Wat in Cambodia.

A breeze enters the tuk-tuk and invitingly cools your skin.

Water buffalo graze in the near by farm and you notice a glimmer of sun touch the top of an ancient temple towering above the overgrown jungle.

You slowly realize that you’ve just traveled back in time to explore an ancient lost civilization dripping with money, power, religion and final defeat.

The ruins of Angkor Wat in Cambodia earned the title of a UNESCO World Heritage Site… and for good reason…


A Day at the Beach; Kep, Cambodia

The city of Kep is a far cry from the stifling fumes of Phnom Penh.  With sandy beaches, lush forests and quaint markets, the region is a popular destination for Cambodians and foreigners alike.  With a couple of days to spare and a picnic basket at the ready, you too will be fully prepared for your time in Kep.
