Today you will bike through the surrounding countryside and prepare a local Khmer meal to offer to the monks. Buddhist monks live away from their families and are not allowed to have normal jobs. They depend on the faith and charity of the local people.
After a bike just outside of Siem Reap we will meet our chef from the village who takes us grocery shopping at a local food market. Maybe the chef will recommend that you to learn to cook the popular dish Amok, a fish soup, or Samlor Korko.
After you have finished your Khmer cooking, the chef and his wife show you how to pack the meal and some rice into a banana leaf. A short walk takes us to the pagoda where the monks live so you can hand them the alms. Most likely the monk will give you a blessing and you can ask him everything you like to know regarding Cambodian culture and Buddhism. After you have given alms and eaten lunch in a local Cambodian home, you will bike back to your hotel and chill for the afternoon.
