An Unusual Dining Experience

December 27, 2011 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under:

Cambodia offers a wide range of culinary delights, from its renowned fish amok, to its satisfying curries and inexpensive but delicious seafood. However, Cambodia also offers another culinary speciality – fried spiders.

One place particularly famous for its fried spiders is a small village called Skuon, a local village in Kampong Cham province. If you are travelling between Siem Reap and Phnom Penh you will pass through Skuon. The tasty and crunchy spiders provide the locals with an opportunity to earn money. Locals and tourists can be seen enjoying the unusual taste experience. The children in the village spend their time hunting the spiders. If you don’t want to eat a spider you can play with some live spiders instead.
