Top things to do in Cambodia other than Angkor Wat
Explore Cambodia on a tuk-tuk
A tuk-tuk ride is considered as the best way to navigate around the cities of Cambodia. This nimble mode of transportation will carry you to every alley, lane and road at a cheap price of $1-$3 for short trips and $12-$15 for the whole day. You can find a tuk-tuk anywhere along the roadside in the city center. Tuk-tuks do not run by the meter, so don’t forget to agree with the driver on a set price prior to the ride.
Enjoy nightlife at Pub Street and Siem Reap Night Market
Siem Reap offers a booming nightlife with lively bars, cocktail lounges, international restaurants and vibrant nightclubs that stay open (and busy) until 4AM every day. Pub Street is the culinary and nightlife hub of Siem Reap and is an ideal place for a night out with numerous restaurants and bars as well as entertaining street performers.
Take a boat to the floating villages, Tonle Sap Lake
There are 173 floating villages on Tonle Sap Lake, the aquatic heart beating in the center of Cambodia. This is an unique eco-system and cultural area offering you the chance to see a different side of Siem Reap. The boat ride through the floating villages will reveal how the daily life of fisherman and their families is going on.
Indulge yourself with Khmer cuisine
Once you are in Cambodia, don’t miss the chance to enjoy the Khmer cuisine which is similar but very different to other cuisine found in Southeast Asia. Amok (steaming fish with coconut curry, lemongrass, kaffir lime and turmeric root) is an authentic food and very popular in Cambodia. Other Cambodia typical dishes such as Beef Lok Lak (stir-fried beef served with salad) and Num Banh Chok (rice noodles with coconut-based fish curry soup) are worth a try. Besides, sumptuous seafood and fresh fish dishes are plentiful, including Kep crab infused with Kampot pepper. Last but not least, eat like a local by tasting some street snacks, from noodles and congee to deep-fried tarantulas and roasted crickets.
