so tame that it doesn’t even figure on most tourist maps of Cambodia.
Skoun is interesting, though, for two reasons. First, it’s at Cambodia’s cross-roads; that’s where the western highway from Siem Reap, meets the eastern highway from Kampong Glam before heading south to Phnom Penh.
The second reason, is for the food. Take a good look at the accompanying picture here; that’s staple food for hungry travellers stopping by the town on their way to Kampong Glam or Siem Reap, and you can get those for a very cheap rate if you haggle enough.
Yup, that’s right.They eat spiders out there in Skoun. Black, eight-legged, hairy spiders.over 7 years ago
