What locals do:
Beside the splendid Angkor Wat attractions, Cambodians have a unique culinary tradition that may make some visitors appalling – the eating of insects. For centuries, Cambodians have been snacking on creepy crawlies like crickets, grasshoppers, maggots, giant water bugs, and even tarantulas! While some may find the idea of eating insects appalling, for Cambodians, it is a part of their identity and an important aspect of their cultural heritage. No doubt, eating insects is not just a habit; Cambodians genuinely enjoy them. Insects are believed to be healthy and nutritious, with some even thought to have medicinal properties. You can easily find those edible insects in both casual street-side eateries along the country, at night market in Siem Reap, and even Khmer restaurants.
