Cambodia is a food-lover's paradise, offering up unbeatable culinary experiences for all tastes. So how does one become acquainted with the country's tantalizing fare? Start with this full-day ultimate foodie tour.
Begin with a cooking class hosted by Mrs. Long Lam, an ordinary citizen with extraordinary prowess in the kitchen. Go behind the scenes of a common household and enjoy an up-close look at how the locals prepare Cambodian cuisine before digging into it yourself (see food options below).
Your cooking class is accompanied by a visit to a bustling market. Your next host, Soy, helps you navigate through Psar Leu, Siem Reap's biggest and most intriguing bazaar, where you find a variety of food and snack options to suit every palate.
This shopping experience melds with a tour of Siem Reap's street food. Soy guides you through a gathering of some of the best vendors the area has to offer, focusing on only the most hygienic stalls.
Finally, enjoy the opportunity to end your day with an optional Khmer Spice Cocktail workshop that's sure to solidify your love affair with Khmer flavors. Your host Pari and her sister, masters of Khmer cocktails, show you how to cleverly concoct beverages using Cambodian spices. Marvel at the way they combine spices to create new flavors you would never have imagined in a drink.
