Food in Cambodia
Rice, fish and vegetables – make up the basis of Khmer cuisine. A special place is also occupied by the French baguettes who arrived in Cambodia since the times of French colonization. Curry in Cambodia is also popular as in other Asian countries, although the traditional Cambodian curry is less acute than, let’s say, in Thailand. Cambodians also love sour – sweet sauces, which, as well as curry make up the basis of many dishes of Cambodian cuisine.
What be sure to try in Cambodia
For breakfast Cambodian eating soup. The traditional soup with rice noodles and vegetables, in our opinion, should be the first in the list "What be sure to try in Cambodia".

Water and Drinks in Cambodia
Do not drink tap water. Buying bottled water (especially on the street), check the integrity of the lid.
Cambodia, like any country of Southeast Asia, will delight you with a variety of fresh juices and juice cocktails. Do not be afraid to order Freasha, just ask not to dilute your Fresh with water.
Most of Cambodia bars and restaurants use ice from purified water, which comes with Cambodia water purification plants. As a rule, recognize the factory ice can be on a hole in the center of the ice cube. In any case, if you are not sure where the ice come from, just ask.
