Visit Cambodia on a food tour from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap

Forget any resemblance to the cuisines of Vietnam, Thailand and Laos, Cambodia has a unique and ancient food culture that is truly exotic. Using pepper rather than chilli to elegantly add spice, Cambodia's unpretentious food is laden with fresh herbs, spices, rice, freshwater fish and condiments. And while there are influences from French and Thai cooking, Cambodian cuisine has a style and flavour all its own. While travelling from Phnom Penn through to Siem Reap, discover the sights, sounds and flavours of Battambang, Banteay Chhmar and Angkor Wat, and marvel at a cuisine, culture and population so special that you will very quickly be won over for life.

  • Trial modern Cambodian dishes created by street youths turned chefs
  • People watch as you dine alfresco in the busy streets of Phnom Penh
  • Discover the art of rice paper making and fruit drying in a local village
  • Prepare a traditional meal and stay with a local Khmer family
  • Explore the fresh food markets of Siem Reap
  • Witness the early morning sun peak over the majestic Angkor Wat

About Cambodia

Real Food Adventure - Cambodia Summary

Add to Shortlist

Days 1-2 Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh celebrates life with optimism and colour, and there are a wealth of riverside eateries, bustling markets and historic sites - both tragic and inspiring - to discover.

Day 3 Battambang

With the Sangker River running alongside, Battambang has wonderfully preserved French Colonial architecture, ornate Khmer temples and a laidback feel, despite being Cambodia's second-largest city.

Day 4 Banteay Chhmar

Witness trees pushing through ancient rock and vines clinging to walls at Banteay Chhmar – an ancient Angkorian temple. Explore the tranquil temple ruins before joining a local family for an overnight stay. Sleep by torchlight in a Khmer stilted house and help the owners prepare a meal using traditional cooking methods and ingredients.

Days 5-8 Siem Reap/Angkor Wat

A vibrant nightlife, mouth-watering food, a time-worn French feel and certain famous temples on its doorstep - Siem Reap is a little town with a big, pulsating heart. Immense, awe-inspiring, extraordinary - the Angkor Wat temples are all this and much more. Built in the 12th century, this former Khmer city is nothing short of spectacular.
