From the exotic to the sublime, follow a culinary trail from through Cambodia from the Angkorian temples of Siem Reap to the idyllic coastal town of Kep, taking in its iconic sites and satisfying the stomach along the way. Learn the secrets behind traditional Khmer cuisine with local chefs and village communities, sampling fine dining cuisine and street food, and feasting on sweet and savoury delights at every turn.

Cambodian cuisine is perhaps the most overlooked of all Asian food, and is largely unknown elsewhere in the world. Yet the Kingdom's savoury dishes, fresh ingredients, and tempting aromas, from its street food to traditional royal Khmer recipes, reflect the rich history and culture of this beautiful country.

Beginning your journey in Siem Reap and the UNESCO World Heritage Angkor Park, visit these majestic ancient ruins while being introduced to traditional Khmer food from local noodle stalls to incredible fine dining restaurants. Take in a cooking class in a countryside village to learn about Cambodian cuisine,  taste the delights of infused rice wine before learning how to make cocktails with traditional Cambodian ingredients.

Continue to Battambang, a sleepy colonial town in the heart of the country. Visit Angkorian temples, eat at charity run restaurants and sample local "snack food". Hopping on two wheels provides you with a unique insight into local culture by travelling out into the surrounding countryside, past rice paddies and rural villages to see local cottage industries at work.

From sleepy towns to bustling cities, travel to the nation's capital of Phnom Penh. Delve into its heart with a walking tour through hidden backstreets and local communities before sitting down for an exquisite high tea at the historic Raffles Le Royal hotel. Take in the city's main sites before enjoying a cruise on the Mekong River, with canapes and a sundowner in hand before enjoying some incredible Khmer barbeque food at one of the city's most famous local restaurants.

Conclude your culinary journey in Kep on Cambodia's southern coast. Travel out to the countryside visiting a plantation of the world famous Kampot pepper and local salt farms. Indulge in a cooking class to learn how to prepare tantalising seafood delicacies before venturing to a deserted island to sit back and relax, snorkel on its local reefs and dining on beach-barbequed crab. End your trip on a culinary high note, enjoying a fine dining "floating dinner" at the end of small wooden pier as the sun sets over the ocean.

Even the most intrepid travellers may be uncertain how to go about discovering the best things to eat in the Kingdom of Wonder and where to eat them. This tour takes the intimidation factor out of adventurous dining in Cambodia's cultural and idyllic hubs. We know the cuisine, we know the country, and we'll show you why we've fallen in love with Cambodia, its people, and especially its food!
