The tour started great we had some interesting dishes from one the local food vendors then had a very interesting and eye opening tour through the local food market and definitely went places we probably would not have on our own as evidenced by the non existent tourists at the market. From there we went across town to another market that was definitely for the locals looking to buying ever day wears....it was at this market that we had a chance to try locally prepared insects, frogs and worms...yummy!
It was after we left this market and headed to dinner that things got a bit weird. Our male guide suggested we try a local restaurant where local business men congregate and families to celebrate special occasions. It looked suspicious going in with the waitresses' uniforms looking a bit provocative...the restaurant was obviously a place for ladies of ill repute to connect with business men ( We saw it happening) and or others looking for special company...very uncomfortable for our family. Additionally, the guide invited our two drivers to eat with us which in and by itself is ok except they were drinking beers....which also made us feel uncomfortable. Just a heads up.
This was the best tour we did on our triip because of our fabulous tour guide, Bo! He was so sweet and knowledgeable and we learned lots about Cambodia. Got to visit a market for the locals, a cool night market and eat bugs and interesting foods and the best was dinner at a local spot! Highly recommend!
