SOCIAL MEDIA AND SEO

Having a solid and creative social media strategy is so important in tourism and hospitality. A dead Twitter feed, an unloved Instagram account and an unfocused Facebook page is simply bad for business. We’ll teach you everything from writing a snappy tweet to editing an Instagram photo and getting those Facebook settings right. While SEO is still seen as somewhat of a black art, we’ll give you simple guidelines to help you get that important first page ranking on Google.

INSTAGRAM

One of the most important social media outlets, having a visually stunning Instagram feed can really drive interest in your business. We love Instagram and we’ll show you how to get the best out of your photos, how to caption and hashtag them for the most impact, growing a real audience organically.

TWITTER

While waning a little in influence compared to Facebook and Instagram, a Twitter presence is nevertheless still an important part of any social media strategy. We’ll teach you how to tweet effectively (and not sounding like spam) as well as help you link your Twitter account to Facebook and Instagram.

FACEBOOK

While Facebook was never intended as a business tool, today a business Facebook presence is almost obligatory. We’ll teach you how to get that page looking good (it’s not that easy!), how to update so that you have a good mix between being personal and adding important information about your business.

SEO

As the saying goes, you’re either on page one of Google search results or you’re nowhere. There are many factors that need to be taken into account to master the black art of Search Engine Optimisation, but we’ll tackle the technical stuff to help your business rank highly on relevant search result pages.

  • Dinner: Terence's wonderful larb moo - Thai minced pork salad. I ate half the Mussaman gai (Thai Muslim chicken curry) before I thought to take a photo. It was leftovers from the night before and even more heavenly the second night. Terence has been cooking Thai food for so long that I realized I take for granted that it's going to taste as incredible as it does. #thaifood #thai #thaicooking #cooking #homecooking #larb #curry #currychicken #cookingtime #food #foodporn #foodie #foodstagram #foodography #foodpicture #foodlover
  • A charming mural demonstrating the Khmer 'sampeah', where each variation of the prayer-like greeting signifies a greater level of respect, depending upon age or status. The gesture is Hindu in origin, dating back to Cambodia's pre Angkor period and Funan Kingdom, which went through a period of Indianisation from the first century AD onward that had a great influence over everything from the architecture and art to the cuisine and culture. In Thailand, much of which was part of the Khmer Empire for centuries, the gesture is called the 'wai'. Locals don't expect visitors to Cambodia to use it, but they appreciate it when you do, as it's a sign of respect and interest in their culture. We teach our tour participants the sampeah and some basic greetings and vocabulary to make their experience all the more engaging and enriching. not join us on one of our Cambodia food tours?

  • Banteay Samré is a little visited Hindu temple built in the early 12th century that we explore on our Cambodia trips. It's surrounded by sturdy, well preserved, high walls and within is a mini Angkor Wat, an experiment in the architectural style of the world renowned temple. It's quite compact, so doesn't take long to see, and part of a causeway, in a very picturesque setting is still left too (which is where I was sitting to take this image).

  • Traditional Khmer nom krok - puddings made from coconut milk and rice flour that can be savoury (with spring onions, corn, chili etc) or sweet (with palm sugar, shredded coconut, peanut etc) in a special cast iron pan and eaten as a street food snack with a sauce. Depending upon the city, region or vendor you might get a sweet chili sauce or fish sauce based condiment. I've also bought them served with a tangy fermented peanut sauce. They're known as khanom krok in Thailand and they're practically the same, and are also found in Myanmar and Laos, but their provenance is most likely India and where their cousin unniyappam, made from a similar recipe. Ignore Wikipedia as these are very different to Indonesia's serabi, which are drier and more like a pikelet. Nom krok is a creamy pudding within, with a firm fried exterior. Some other Thai sources call them dumplings, which they're clearly not. Lots more to come on these. #siemreap #cambodia #asia #travel #traveller #travelwriting #travelblogger #traveblogging #travelphotography #travelgram #culinarytravel #culinaryjourneys #food #foodie #foodies #foodietravel #foodwriter #foodphotographer #foodblogger #foodblogging #foodwriting #foodiesofinstagram #foodlover #cambodianfood #cambodiancuisine #streetfood #snacks #dessert #sweets #savoury
  • I've absorbed sunrise at Angkor Wat dozens of times but this was one of my favourites. I love arriving in the black of night to witness the astronomical twilight and the sky cycling through myriad shades of blue. I'll always welcome that gorgeous golden light that can set the sky ablaze but there's something about the early morning blues that takes my breath away and on some days even brings a tear to the eyes.
