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 add spice, Cambodian cuisine is laden with fresh herbs, spices, rice, freshwater fish and condiments. And while there are influences from French and Thai cooking, Cambodian food has a style and flavour all its own. While travelling from Phnom Penh through to Siem Reap, discover the sights, sounds and flavours of Kampot, 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.

This trip aims to give you an exciting, diverse and well-rounded experience of Cambodia's cuisine. While we endeavour to cater for specific dietary requirements, some meals and food activities are set in advance and may be difficult to adjust. If you have dietary requirements, simply contact your agent at the time of booking for further information on how this may impact on your ability to take part in included activities and meals. Come with an open mind and open mouth, and you won’t be disappointed!
This trip involves a long day of driving from Phnom Penh to Battambang (Day 5). Cambodian roads can also be rough and bumpy, and delays are sometimes unavoidable. A dash of patience will go a long way toward your enjoyment of this beautiful country!
The facilities at your homestay in Banteay Chhmar are simple – a thin mattress on the floor, with pillow and mosquito net provided. Bathroom facilities at homestay are shared and often consist of an Asian squat-style toilet. However, the rewards of such an authentic local experience are immeasurable.
Cambodia can get very hot, and even temple-hopping can take it out of you quickly. Remember to use sun protection and drink plenty of water.

Such an amazing adventure! I am so happy that I chose to go to Cambodia - I absolutely loved getting to know the people, the culture, and the food. It was my first time traveling with Intrepid and I am very impressed. All of the activities were well planned and they really stressed responsible tourism. Our tour guide was fabulous - very informative and personable. If you search the internet for Cambodian food and see a bunch of fried tarantulas, don't let that scare you. Although we did have the opportunity to try some of the more eclectic food items, there's more to Cambodian cuisine than that! Don't hesitate to book this trip - you'll love it!

We loved the local way of life the happy lovely people, the free and happy lifestyle that children had in a supporting village atmosphere. Best advise would be to take advantage of your guide knowledge and be willing to step outside your comfort zone.
