Let's talk about the vendors. Before most vendors would have their products in baskets or open carts with authentic Khmer dishes, it was so endearing. Now most vendors have metal and glass carts with snacks, but only some have authentic Khmer dishes. About half of the vendors sell pizza and fried chicken and they don't taste good either. I don't like seeing them. I use to see lots of vendors everywhere, but now some place it is prohibited. There is talk about the Minister wanting to eliminate all vendors off the roads, which would be good for traffic.
Don't worry you can still see real Cambodia, you have to go off road. Go down some alleys and don't just go to big stores. I am bad at taking pictures. At first, the Hubby said this is not what I was expecting, then our tuk tuk driver had to make a detour to his house. "Now this is what I was expecting." It was like the king parading on the main roads and he only see the best the country has to offer, but the poor is hidden from him.
Here is some of the pictures I took that I thought was cool about Cambodia.
