My Cambodian Christmas was a relatively chilled one – as it was my fifth visit or so, I’d gotten most of the usual touristy stuff out of the way, which meant I could just relax.
Here are a few of my personal highlights from the last trip – a few places I enjoyed visiting and eating at!
In Phnom Penh
The food at Bistrot Langka was really incredible – this incredible slowcooked egg dish with chorizo and soldiers was absolutely divine.
I really wanted some Cambodian art, and managed to get a Cambodian Space Project poster at Space Four Zero – if they are playing while you are in town, try and get yourself to a gig.
Finally made it down to Kravanh for traditional Khmer food – I’m keen to recreate their tamarind chicken dish at home.
After stopping in at The Rusty Keyhole in Kampot en route, we enjoyed a lovely few days in Kep. The Sailing Club restaurant next to Knai Bang Chatt has the most beautiful views (and lovely cocktails).
We also spent the best day out snorkelling on the Tyka Boat – the barbecued seafood lunch was absolutely delicious.
We also managed to squeeze in a swim in the Kampot River, with the LoveTheRiver cruise.
I loved every minute of my trip, and will really miss it once my family move back home!
