Are you a food lover? If the answer is Yes then the Cambodian authentic food "AMOK" is The Best Ever! Visit me at the countryside, meet with the truly local people and try local dishes with the village chef. You will have the opportunity to visit the local market, we will cook the dishes together and of course we will taste the delicious food as well.
