With its interesting street foods from noodle recipes, Cambodian sandwich to their exotic ones that includes snails, worms and crickets to munch on, Cambodia is also popular because of the richness of its culture and traditions.

Cambodia also invites you to have a look at their numerous jungle temples that would give you an Indiana Jones feels because we know that there is one in all of us.

Fun Tip: Don’t forget to greet people you meet with sous-dey – meaning hello in English translation of the Cambodian’s language, Khmer.
