Cambodia has many restaurants, each of them with mouth-watering specialties. It is sometime difficult to choose!
However, it is important that you show some care when selecting. Many street-side restaurants lack proper sanitation and eating the wrong food could shorten your holiday. Watch for the overall cleanliness of the restaurant and the seller and avoid eating food that has been sitting outside for too long.
If you stay in a place that allows sex workers (look out for young Asian women wearing short skirts, make-up, and who are very outgoing with men), you condone prostitution.
When choosing a place to eat keep your eyes wide open!
You can also patronize the services of the businesses that actively support our child protection policy.
Below is a list of places to go in Cambodia that are ChildSafe and will make your stay in Cambodia that much more enjoyable.
Thank you for using their services!
