3/ Food
Khmer food is humble and comforting. Rice is a staple, served at pretty much every meal. It may come alone, fried into a cake or with curries, stews and freshwater fish. The most famous Khmer dish is fish amok, which is white fish steamed in a banana leaf and topped with coconut cream. Beef and pork are commonly served with rice or noodles, typically with herbs and some kind of curry.

4/ Phnom Penh
The capital of Cambodia is a cosmopolitan city on the brink of becoming the Asia's next bright destination. Phnom Penh is full of contrast -- between tradition and modernity, poverty and wealth, locals and tourists

5/ Markets
From Siem Reap to Phnom Penh, bustling markets are found all over the country. Stalls are packed full with everything from sneakers to produce. It's close quarters in most markets - the corridors are narrow, space is limited, and bodies are everywhere.
