Stopped at Skuon, as part of things you need to do as a tourist. The fist thing that hits you is tha garlic smelling deep fried flesh, all along we were going to try a bug, spider or 'boiled egg' but once there we just couldn't bring ourselves to try the food on offer. Even the super fresh spiders Some one must buy this food judging how much of it there was.

Stopped here on the way to Siem Reap. Lots of bugs (along with vegetables, fruits, etc) on display here. You can have fried tarantula, water bugs, crickets, grass hoppers, what have you. All fried so that the taste is no doubt destroyed. They even have the little kids wandering around with spiders to temp/terrorize the visitor. If it seems exploitative, it is. You are giving locals some money; it's also perhaps too tacky to be worth stopping. I'll skip this stop the next time around.

Not to everyone's taste, but an interesting local specialist market (it's name translates into Spiderville) for the essentials in life: a bio-break, a cold drink and a tasty snack. Tarantula, anyone ? Huge bowls of varies sizes of cockroaches, scorpions, "flies", crickets and spiders - especially tarantulas. Mostly cooked in chilli oil (to deaden the taste buds ?). Most just rather crunchy - all those exoskeletons. I couldn't face the idea of large, chewy tarantulas, though. Salutory to think about why the Cambodians have taken to eating these critters though. As with China, starvation developed the need .....

Stopped here while on the way to Kampong Cham. Basically it’s just an open market with vendors selling drinks, deep fried spiders/worms etc, freshly cut fruits.

$1 to hold a spider with fangs removed $1 a pineapple In fact $1 for anything However the cafe undercover is cheaper than the traders and the coffee is the best I had in Cambodia, so go there and avoid the tour buses
