It’s true that Cambodian cuisine shares common dishes with its neighboring countries such as Thailand, Vietnam, China, even India, and is influenced by the remnants of French colonial days. Khmers, however, had found creative ways to put in a dash of their style and flavor, making these otherwise familiar dishes into something uniquely Cambodian.
Get ready to have a taste of Siem Reap’s street food, by hopping into a remork-moto, commonly known as tuk tuk, as we pick you up from your hotel.
