We'll be arriving in a few days and have Phnom Penh, Siem Reap, Kampot and Sihanoukville/Koh Rong on our tentative agenda for the rest of the month. I was last in town for a (short) long week two years ago, so, please, recommendations welcome all around! Best parts of town? Meals not to miss? Bike route recs around Angkor? Street food?
I look forward to Peace Cafe & Chamkar again...

Well, I can report that I fared incredibly well in Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, and well enough in Sihanoukville and both Koh Rong Kong Rong Samloen. We primarily ate really great Italian food in the south, which was a nice surprise. Notes and photos soonish!

Hello! I'll be travelling to work in Phnom Penh this winter/early spring and would appreciate any tips or reviews (or photos :) ) you could share about your experience there as a vegan.

I'm going to be in Cambodia early next year, maybe March time. Can't wait!

jdfunks did you take bikes around Angkor in the end? I'm excited to hear there's great Italian food, I suspect my chilli allergy is going to cause some issues on this trip!

Hi!

We did not bike around Angkor, because honestly, there are SO many (affordable) tuk tuk drivers looking for work and not a lot of locking-your-bike opportunities that I saw. Jules and I did rent bikes in Sihanoukville between island hopping, but there wasn't a lot of time to ride them. Northern Thailand was where we rode bikes the most.
And as for chilis, Khmer cuisine is REALLY mild. Even at the most well known & mostly vegan place in Siem Reap (the name is escaping me, but it's a charming must that I visited twice within two years and off of pub street), if you request spicy/with chilis, it's barely even bordering on spicy, chiles and all. The Italian places seriously made things more spicy than anywhere else!

That's a great tip about chili's, I hadn't really remembered Italian can be super spicy because it hardly ever is here! I'm properly allergic to peppers so I'm going to have to be really careful but it's good to know that that might be easyish in Cambodia.

Good to know about the affordable tuk tuk's around Angkor, I'm super into the idea of biking places but we might save that for Chiang Mai. Realistically it might be way too hot for me to bike anywhere anyway!

Oh, but I do recommend biking around the larger cities like Siem Reap & Phnom Penh. It's a fast way to get around and helps you avoid tuk tuks calling out about offerings rides if you're choosing to walk places. I used my bike almost exclusively during our 2 weeks in Phnom Penh (we rented an apartment on roomarama.com) and the traffic is NUTS but I didn't have any issues.
