An Empire of Temples

The Khmer Empire is the largest empire of Southeast Asia that flourished between the 9th and 15th century. The remains of this empire can be seen at the fabled temples of Angkor, unrivaled in scale and grandeur. The ultimate expression of Khmer genius is expressed in a World Heritage Site called the Angkor Wat, and is matched by only a few select spots on earth, such as Machu Picchu or Petra.

Apsara: The Cambodian Dance

No visit to Cambodia is complete without watching a traditional performance of this unique and beautiful dance. This dance is an essential part of the Khmer culture. Every single movement of the fingers has a particular meaning and in 2003, the UNESCO recognized the dance as a masterpiece of oral and intangible heritage of humanity.

APSARA DANCE PERFORMERS
This art form was taught only at the royal court with each gesture having its own symbolism.
Khmer Fish Amok Curry
Khmer cuisine has much in common with Thai and Vietnamese cuisine, with plenty of sugar and coconut but with less chilli. Furthermore, Cambodian food has also been influenced by the Chinese (noodles) and the French (baguettes, pate & coffee).

Khmer Fish Amok Curry 

Cambodia’s food is all about the contrasts—sweet and bitter, salty and sour, fresh and cooked. Fish Amok is a classic Khmer dish that is a must-try when you get here! Everyone that we talked to had a family recipe of their own version of the dish. It’s usually steamed and served in a banana leaf with a little coconut cream on top. Yum!
