Our local experience in Cambodia
As a traveler you have may know the struggle between visiting the main attractions in the country and having a local experience in Cambodia at the same time. Furthermore, even the local places are becoming tourist destinations quickly. And too often you also have to travel for a long time to meet locals in the countryside.
At Dine With The Locals we try to help you with this problem: Our hosts are in a 7 km radius in Siem Reap, Battambang and Phnom Penh, so travel time is not an issue. And yet, you will have local experience in Cambodia in many different ways. Our hosts are farmers, business people, artists and house wifes – there is a wide range to experience.
Local experience in Cambodia in the forest
Watch Ms. Vannarith preparing fried chicken – a true local experience in Cambodia
For example: Ms. Vannarith is a housewife and chicken farmer, her house is located in the forest of Angkor Wat in Siem Reap and is made from wood. She is an excellent cook as well and makes the best fried chicken you can get in town. She is happy to show you her garden and where the herbs in your soup are coming from. Mr. Vannak on the other side is an artist and photographer, living in an local appartment in the center of Phnom Penh. He enjoys talks about art and the changing lifestyle in Cambodia.
Another way of a local experience in Cambodia is the countryside. In Battambang, our host Panha runs her own organic farm and is happy to show you around as well as preparing delicious local Khmer food. Our hosts Olivier and Darin are the proof that sustainable lifestyle is possible in Cambodia and you can see the amazing results at their farm in Banteay Meanchey. Enjoy a natural setting and the untouched countryside in Cambodia.
