From our very first days in Phnom Penh and in Siem Reap, FCC has been the meeting place for intrepid adventurers, locals and visitors, from around the world. FCC brings together spirited people where, in colonial settings perfect for conversation, good food and drink have always been the order of the day. And, where sharing information and telling of stories both big and small, myths have been born.

In the early days, Phnom Penh fell silent at sun down, and the choices for places to eat were just handful. The FCC proved popular with foreign journalists and aid workers, who gathered around the bar for a cold beer and to swap tales. The FCC became the cornerstone of the capital’s river front district.

In Siem Reap, only a trickle of visitors crossed the borders. The focus then was great food and serving a little bit of luxury to travelers weary after long days of tomb raiding. As the number of visitors increased, so did expectations. People wanted a place to stay and some care and pampering. The hotel rooms and Visaya Spa grew from those requests.
