  • On the Phnom Penh - Siem Reap, by the national 6, way we find the town of Skun, right at the junction with the national 7. It is interesting to do the technical stop here for the possibility of visiting a market specialized in the sale of insects to eat. They are usually fried, but you can also see live spiders. Crickets, small grasshoppers, scorpions, pupae (from fly?), also small snakes and... more. Among tourists is the nickname of "city of spiders", a little exaggerated. It is interesting to know how the sellers of goods in such quantities and form are supplied continuously; There are true specialists in the hunt and capture of these bugs that, apparently, used traps to attract and capture different insects: all a trade. Eye, also there is fruit! (rich fruit, by the way).

  • The Cambodians consider this paste as the best for buying tarantulas, furry black spiders with eight legs that apply as a delicacy to eat. Crispy roasted!

  • It is not necessary to go to Sam Skuon, to try local fried spiders. If you are travelling from Phnom Penh to Kampong Cham, the bus makes a stop at the care highway where, in addition to the usual edalni, there was fried spiders and crickets. Spider 3000 riels, crickets mug-4000. In the shop there is also a cold beer. I assure you, this will be one of the most memorable meals in Cambodia. Absolutely nothing to fear-this is unusual, but great appetiser under cold beer.
