General

Travel one way from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap by road (approx 312km) whilst visiting sights along the way. Stops are made at the popular Spider Market in Skun, the Sambor Prei Kuk temple ruins and the stilted houses of Kampong Phluk Villages.

Skun is known in the local language as ‘Spiderville’ and is often frequented by visitors. There are many trays with different types of fried bugs and insects, but the market is best known from the spiders or tarantulas. Sambor Prei Kuk is a collection of 7th century temple ruins consisting of dozens of impressive brick prasats in semi-cleared jungle, many ruins displaying excellent examples of early Khmer art. Kampong Phluk is a cluster of three villages of stilted houses built within the floodplain. Flooded mangrove forest surround the area and is home to a variety of wildlife including crab-eating macaques. Kampong Phluk’s economy is, as one might expect, based on fishing and shrimp harvesting.
