Cambodia has become one seriously popular destination for tourists in recent years.

We list the best places to visit for a taste of things.

Café Soleil

As a Buddhist country, Cambodia is littered with vegetarian options. Café Soleil is just one of the renowned restaurants offering meat-free fare in BKK, ranging from spring rolls to pumpkin salads, papaya mixes and home-made yogurt. Another unique feature of the restaurant is the use of brown rice instead of ordinary white rice. This whole-grain alternative boasts a higher nutrition value and chewier texture;
