You’ll find fish amok anywhere in the country, but I highly recommend going to Romdeng Restaurant once in Phnom Penh. The restaurant served absolutely delicious fish amok plus it is a part of Tree Alliance, a social enterprise that supports disadvantaged youth.Foods from morning markets

Whenever I travel to a new place, I like to steep myself deep in their culture, of which food is an extremely integral part. Cambodia was no different, especially since I had heard great things about the food here. So, it seemed but natural to enrol for a cooking class while I was in Phnom Penh, the capital city of Cambodia. Khmer food includes a lot of fish, fish sauce (which I fund a bit too strong fro my liking), chicken and pork. They also feast on many insects, which we were not adventurous enough to try.After referring to trip advisor about various cooking schools, we chose Veasna's Cooking class (Veasnainthekitchen.com) as we could customise the menu and have a private class for ourselves. Veasna came at 8:30 am to our Hotel on Sisowath Quay and off we were to shop for our ingredients.Just after a few minutes' walk, we reached the market where every fish, meat and vegetable imaginable were being sold. The sights were very fascinating; women filleting fish with the same skill of a starred chef, milk being extracted from coconuts with specialised equipment, mounds of the famous kampot pepper filling the sir with their aroma, fresh lemongrass and kafir lime leaves made into a ready-to-use paste and new vegetables that I had never encountered amongst others. WE spent a goof 45 minutes walking around and buying produce for our meal. On our way to the cooking class, we picked up a huge tender coconut inside which we were to cook fish amok - Cambodia's most popular dish (and my favourite).
A lazy beach mini-vacation and gorgeous tan later, make your way to the capital of Cambodia. You can't plan your Cambodia travel guide without stopping at Phnom Penh. From history to royalty, food to shopping, Phnom Penh has it all!
Cambodia has a difficult and painful history of genocide in the not-so-distant past. Between 1975-1979 almost 3 million out of 8 million Cambodians died of starvation or were killed by the Khmer Rouge. Note of caution: I was prepared for what was to come since I had read up about the genocide but it was still very depressing and emotionally taxing. At the gates of the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum or S-21 prison we paid 6 $ each and got audio head sets, players and a map each. To see this building from the outside nobody would dream of the nightmarish atrocities that happened inside it. The audio tour is a good investment as it takes visitors through numbered points in the school-turned-prison building. Our minds numb with the horrors of history we had just witnessed, we set off for the next destination: The Killing Fields. This is the mass grave-site where prisoners from S-21 were taken and killed. The main structure here is a memorial built in traditional Khmer style housing hundreds of human skulls and bones that were found there. There is an audio tour here too which explains what happened here and there is a short video that is played for 10 minutes every half hour for visitors.
The trip began at Phnom Penh. From Kolkata, return tickets to this capital city can be procured for as low as 20,000 INR. Cambodia is a visa-on-arrival destination for Indians which makes it all the more lucrative for travel. 30 USD visa fees, a passport sized photograph and a basic filled-in immigration form handed in at the airport immigration desk results in a tourist visa within minutes.

The very next day went to Phu Quoc Island which is an hour flight from HCMC. I stayed there in Antinho hostel for two nights. This island is not really small, so if one wants to explore it properly should rent a motorbike. Boi Sai Beach and Ong Lang beach took my breath away, the most beautiful places you can say. Boi Sai is quite crowded while the latter one is more of tranquil. Phu Quoc night Market is amazing place to have local food and to buy jewelleries especially pearls. From the hostel I got a friend named Toby from Germany who was backpacking for 8 months in Asia. That's the thing about hostels where you can find travelers from in and across the world.
Stayed at the Moon Resort in my own private bungalow, but it rained the entire time. Met up with a guy that I had met waiting at the airport and we rode around in the rain on a motorbike. We found this amazing waterfall where all of the locals swim and hang out which I would recommend finding for sure. The night market is okay, seemed like a pretty relaxing atmosphere. We grabbed some beers and sat on a bench up on a rock near the lighthouse and hung out. Unfortunately it only stopped raining at night, so I would go off of someone else's opinion of this place. I'm sure it's lovely but we didn't really get to experience too much.

Bust to Can Tho: 7am-7pm. (I wouldn't recommend it, they try to squeeze as many people on it as possible, some people had to sit on luggages.)
Can Tho is a place where traditional Vietnamese food and street foods are available in plenty and with English language meagerly seen or heard in these parts, experience the ecstatic adventure of trying to figure out the food on the menu, enjoy playing volleyball and conversing in English with the students at Can Tho University and simply wandering around the streets and market place relaxed.
Can Tho surrounds it's life along a river and is widely known for its floating markets. The first market was Cai Rang, which was a conglomeration of small vendors bumping up against larger boats buying their precious harvest of fruits and vegetables, by the ton. An hour upriver found us in the middle of the Phong Dien Floating Market. A smaller version of the first market, we should have taken the shorter 4 hour ride instead of 6, skipping Phong Dien.
Day 18 Ho Chi Minh – Mekong Delta – Cai Be floating market (BL) Am: Have breakfast at hotel. At 08.00 am you leave Ho Chi Minh City for a fascinating drive through rural Vietnam to Cai Be. As you leave the bustling city of Saigon, the scenery changes to the lush rice paddies, which is locally known as the 'rice bowl of Vietnam'. You will take a boat for a trip to CAI Be floating market. See the larger boats in the market, each selling mostly one product, this is truly a different experience and one you will remember. Then you continue on the boat to Vinh Long, the journey takes one hour and along the way will stop to visit some of the picturesque islands that lie in the center of the Mekong River. Stopover at Binh Hoa Phuoc Island and see more charming and specialties of tropical fruits such as Logan, Sapodilla, and Durian whilst also sampling these exotic fruits. Have lunch on island with special dishes Pm: This afternoon you cruise the back and experience on 'Monkey Bridges', small rickety structures that looks easy to walk on but are harder than you think. The driver transfers you back Ho Chi Minh City. Free to have your own dinner. Overnight at hotel. Day 19 Ho Chi Minh departs (B) Have breakfast at hotel. You have more free time to explore Ho Chi Minh City. Then the driver drops you off the airport for taking fight departure Ho Chi Minh to next destination or back home. Say goodbye Indochina Legend Travel Vietnam & see you again!

Our next stop was 124 kms away. It is a small town in northeastern Cambodia. It is relatively remote and you won’t usually find tourists here. Our sole purpose to come here was to ride through the countryside and discover the many remote roads. We spent the entire day cycling around remote villages along the sides of Mekong River. You can ask for directions from the locals to catch up on some musical performance. It is a very quiet town and I surely enjoy a day travelling across this tiny town.
