PHUM BAITANG, CAMBODIA S

ituated in close proximity to the Angkor World Heritage Site, a cluster of 45 spacious stilted wooden villas form the “green village” that is Siem Reap’s PHUM BAITANG resort. Surrounded by eight acres of lush nature, the reformed ancient farmhouse is a tranquil oasis that houses a yoga pavilion, a spa temple, an outdoor infinity pool with bar, and two restaurants that serve dishes using ingredients fresh from their own paddy fields and gardens. Inspired by traditional Cambodian design, the resort’s earthy interior includes pieces of Khumer-style handmade wooden furniture and handpicked local antiques like rattan wing chairs.

he streets of Manila spill into D-Strip Building on United Street to find itself a roof at Asian fusion joint SKINITA STREET FOODZ. As its name implies, its deliberately grungy interior of wooden tables, plastic chairs, and tainted cement walls covered in street art and dated flyers is reminiscent of a typical dark alley or eskinita. Here, diners are encouraged to let loose and leave a mark of their own with colored liquid chalk pens handed upon entering. True to the aesthetic, their menu includes a selection of classic Filipino, Taiwanese, and Japanese street food usually sold at side street vendors, like bao buns and chicken skewers.
