My dear travelers, hello,
As part of this program, I offer you the opportunity to venture off the beaten track for a day, including a picturesque walk between traditional houses and rice fields in Siem Reap, a Khmer cooking class in Siem Reap, as well as an Apsara dance dinner show. We will begin with a peaceful bicycle excursion in the middle of the rice fields, where rice, a true pillar of our Cambodian diet, plays a central role. You are welcome to bring your hats and sunglasses to make this ride even more enjoyable.
Khmer Cooking Class Siem Reap
Following our walk, I suggest you take part in a Khmer cooking class during which you will have the opportunity to get your hands dirty under the guidance of our local chef. You will discover that preparing amok, a refined and delicious dish, is not as complicated as it seems. Amok consists of a mixture of various spices, which are combined with fish or chicken, garnished with generous portions of coconut milk. This last ingredient is widely used in Cambodian cuisine, both in dishes and desserts. Additionally, a vegetarian version of amok is also available.
Lok lak is another must-try specialty, usually made with sautéed beef and served with tomatoes and salad, topped with a peppery lime sauce. This sauce has a unique taste thanks to the use of Kampot pepper, one of the best in the world.
Apsara dance dinner show in Siem Reap
After this busy day, I suggest you return to your hotel to relax before meeting up around 6 p.m. to attend a dinner show in town. You may have already admired Apsaras carved at Angkor; In this dinner show, you will have the opportunity to see them perform live. The Apsaras will perform graceful movements reminiscent of snakes, a reference to the great history of Cambodia.
According to legend, the Khmer empire was born from the union between a Naga princess (neak in Khmer, symbolizing Asian dragons) and an Indian prince. This story explains the presence of representations of snakes throughout Khmer architecture, whether in century-old temples, pagodas or bridges.
In truth, I could tell you so many other anecdotes about my country.
I look forward to meeting you, ladies and gentlemen, and the children.
