HIGHLIGHTS Download trip notes
  • A street food tour of Hanoi takes you to the best spots in town to sample northern specialties like pho, bun cha and the goldenyellow xoi xeo – finger lickin’ stuff.
  • With two nights in Hoi An, there's plenty of time to take in magic of this standout destination. Watch traditional noodle making, visit a local lantern maker, then try your hand at a cooking class!
  • The Vietnamese people are some of the most welcoming in the world. A homestay on the Mekong Delta allows you to experience their hospitality, learn their kitchen secrets and get an insight into rural life.
  • Get an insight into Cambodian cuisine with a visit to famous pepper plantations outside of Kampot, and taste some of the best pepper in the world.
Starting in Hanoi and ending in Siem Reap, the trip Vietnam & Cambodia Real Food Adventure is a guided food tour that takes 20 days. You will be traveling through Ho Chi Minh City, Hnom Penh, Halong Bay and 9 other destinations in Cambodia and Vietnam. Vietnam & Cambodia Real Food Adventure is a small group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others. Please see the package includes section for further details.

Chop, slice and chomp your way through the diverse flavours of South East Asia on this mouth-watering Real Food Adventure into Vietnam and Cambodia. Vietnam’s prized cuisine is bursting with fresh, spicy and complex flavours, while across the border, Cambodia’s food is humble, oft unexplored, and no less delicious. Drink in cafes and beer halls that sprawl out over city streets, buy fruit from wicker baskets draped over a vendor’s shoulders and sit at market stalls as aromatic noodle soups are whipped up in front of you. From a sunset cruise on Halong Bay and a cycle past herb farms near Hoi An to discovering the French influence of Phnom Penh and meeting charming local communities at Banteay Chhmar, these South East Asian powerhouses will fill you with great food and even more memorable experiences.

Is this trip right for you:
  • This trip aims to give you an exciting, diverse and well-rounded experience of a region'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. In many countries, dietary restrictions are not common or well understood. If you have dietary requirements, please advise your agent at time of booking to receive 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.
  • Temperatures and humidity can be high in South East Asia, especially when walking around sites like the Angkor complex where there may be little shade. Be prepared by taking plenty of drink breaks and wearing appropriate skin protection. Some travellers find an umbrella handy to keep the sun off (this will also come in handy should it rain!).
  • In order to see as much as possible, this trip involves some long journeys, including by overnight train where the amenities are shared and basic. For more about what this experience is like, see our blog post here: https://www.intrepidtravel.com/adventures/what-to-expect-on-an-overnight-train-in-vietnam/.
  • The motorbike tour of Hue has been assessed for safety and is closely monitored (helmets are provided and drivers are licensed). However, alternative transport can be arranged for those who would prefer not to travel by motorbike.
  • Facilities at the Mekong Delta and Banteay Chhmar homestays are quite basic. But authentic, heart-warming experiences of local life should more than make up for the lack of creature comforts.
  • The bloody rule of the Khmer Rouge is a painful but important part of Cambodian history to confront. If you would rather not visit the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum (S21) and the Killing Fields of Choeung Ek, just let your leader know.
  • This trip involves a long day of driving from Phnom Penh to Battambang (Day 16). 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!
  • You will visit a number of temples on this trip, and this requires a level of modesty. Be sure to bring clothes that cover the arms and pants or skirts that go past the knees. A light scarf is also a good idea for covering shoulders and arms when it’s hot.
