Siem Reap

Every visitor to Cambodia stops in Siem Reap. The Angkor Wat complex is not only a UNESCO World Heritage, but also a history lesson and a great place to spend some time. Get a tuk tuk and explore the wast area yourself.

One of the things to do in Siem Reap is trying local food. If you enjoy cooking with locals, you should visit one of our hosts. Siem Reap is our core town with the most hosts available. The range goes from a house in the forest to lunch/dinner at a mushroom farm, cooking Khmer food where the artists live, talk with a former Apsara dancer of chat with two modern Khmer ladies.

To experience a country, the highlight are not enough. At Dine With The Locals we offer you a sneak peak into the real life of Cambodian families. Many of our guests stay in contact with the host even when back in their home countries.
