Top things to do in PP when visitors are in town

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

I've also got afternoon tea at Daughters of Cambodia and the Tea Haven on my list - it's a girl thing.

'Strayans all (let us rejoice), they do an authentic pavlova, but tackle it on a reasonably empty tank. Huge serve.

I am quite surprised -- nobody has mentioned Plae Pakaa for a demonstration of Khmer dance and culture. An absolute must see for visitors. Yes it's $10 per head -- but support the arts!

Which one does the Pav? Daughters or Tea Haven? And, address please.

Daughters of Cambodia do pav at their cafe (upstairs over their shop) street 178. The serving was about a quarter of a full pav when we went.

Sorry, just to clarify, the cafe is called Sugar and Spice cafe. There's a 2nd cafe in the Russian market district but we haven't been there yet.

Thanks for that.

'A quarter of a full pav?' So, I should take the whole family then?

:bow:


Edit: caught your update. Cheers!
