In fact, this whole town seems abuzz with people doing good. I spend an evening at the wonderfully fun Phare Circus, a non-profit group set up to educate and empower young people into work, established by seven artists who survived the genocide. I take a food tour by tuk-tuk with Taste Siem Reap, making pit stops at NGO-run restaurants, fairy-lit French bistros and the high-end Mie Café housed in a glorious old teak mansion. And I drink at Tribe, a chic, charitable gallery, café and bar just opened by Londoners Terry McIlkenny and Nat Di Maggio, where works by superstar street artists Fin Dac and Pure Evil sit alongside Cambodia’s newly nurtured talent. I really need a week here.

"If you only have a few days in a new city, you're fairly limited on how many restaurants you can try. That's why a food tour is great — you can visit three to five restaurants in a single evening. I've been on a few tours in various cities, but the best I've experienced is Taste Siem Reap in Cambodia."

"I was really impressed with their organisational skills, choice of restaurants and lovely personal touches, like our itinerary being printed and rolled into a woven bamboo tube, so we always knew what was next. Definitely something to consider doing when visiting temple town!"

"Durante nuestra vuelta al mundo conocimos la iniciativa Taste Siem Reap, que ofrece unos interesantes tours que te permiten degustar increíbles recetas camboyanas, mientras recorres la ciudad en tuktuk y conoces -¡y colaboras!- con tres restaurantes que introducen a jóvenes sin recursos en el mundo laboral mediante estudios y trabajos bien remunerados."

“If you have just a short visit planned to Siem Reap, but want to try a variety of places I highly recommend A Taste of Siem Reap for a food tour. The founder Evi-Elli La Valle will be sure to take care of you”.
