WELCOME TO CAMBODIA

Cambodian flag

The Kingdom of Cambodia is a Southeast Asian nation bordered by Vietnam to the east, Laos to the north, Thailand to the northwest, and the Gulf of Thailand to the southwest.

Much of the population still subsists on less than the equivalent of USS1 a day, the provision of even basic services remains inconsistent, and political intrigue remains as complex and opaque as ever;  but the security situation has improved immeasurably, and increasing numbers of visitors are rediscovering Cambodia’s temples and beaches.

 

WHEN TO GO

beach-scene-brolliesA tropical country, Cambodia is warm all year round, though there are several distinct seasons.  There is little rain between November and May, the so-called dry season, which itself divides into two distinct phases.

The cool season (Nov – Feb) is the peak time for tourism, as it’s cool enough to explore the temples in comfort and yet warm enough to sunbathe by the coast.

The hot season (typically March – May) is when humidity and temperatures soar, with Phnom Penh and Battambang seeing peak daytime temperatures of 33 – 35dg C.  At this time, it’s best to rise early to get out and about, returning for a snooze at midday and emerging again late in the afternoon.

templeThe rainy season lasts roughly from June to October.  River levels rise dramatically, and in September and October the country’s infrastructure is at its most stretched, with dirt roads, reduced to deep slurry and a risk of flooding in provincial areas.

Breakfast at Skun in Kampong Cham Province of Cambodia.

 

 We travel to Kampong Cham Province on Sunday morning for Kathen Ceremony there. We stopped for breakfast at Skun at a very busy restaurant with lots of people ordering foods for their breakfast.

They have fried pork with rice, fried chicken with rice, Cambodian Noodle soup, Hot noodle soup with pork chopped, coffee with milk and ice tea. It’s a very busy restaurant where people like to stop for breakfast as they can enjoy the street foods and fruits there as well. 

Street food is ready-to-eat food or drink sold by a hawker, or vendor, in a street or other public place, such as at a market or fair.

It is often sold from a portable food booth, food cart, or food truck and meant for immediate consumption. Some street foods are regional, but many have spread beyond their region of origin.

Most street foods are classed as both finger food and fast food, and are cheaper on average than restaurant meals. According to a 2007 study from the Food and Agriculture Organization, 2.5 billion people eat street food every day.

Today, people may purchase street food for a number of reasons, such as to get flavorful food for a reasonable price in a sociable setting, to experience ethnic cuisines, or for nostalgia.
