After first shopping in a morning market for provisions, take a cooking class to learn the secrets of the delightful Khmer cuisine.
- Try your hand at pottery or other traditional handicrafts at one of the NGO-run workshops dedicated to keeping Cambodia’s artistic heritage alive.
- Travel to the “Killing Fields” near Phnom Penh to pay respects to those who lost their lives during the reign of terror of the Khmer Rouge.
- Stroll the ancient wall around the massive Royal City of Angkor Thom, a route rarely taken by tourists, and have a picnic lunch aside a small ornate temple.
- Bike through the small French colonial city of Battambang, where locals earn their livelihoods at a variety of home industries; at night wonder at the acrobats and contortionists at the local circus.
- To end your trip in Cambodia with a splash, spend a few night at the ultra-deluxe Song Saa Private Island resort, a short boat ride from the coastal town of Sihanoukville.
