Backyard Travel reveals new "A Taste of Cambodia" tour

Backyard Travel, a leading online travel company specialising in tours around Asia, has unveiled details of its newest tour: "A Taste of Cambodia".

The tour takes tourists on a culinary experience around Cambodia and gives visitors the chance to visit some of the country's most historic sites along the way.

Starting off in Siem Reap, which is home to a collection of spectacular temples and the gateway to the world-famous Angkor Archaeological Park and its 12th-century ruins, travellers will be led by an expert local Backyard Travel guide.

The tour will visit Angkor Wat and tourists can explore the Ta Prohm temple and Angkor Thom before heading to the exotic local markets to sample a range of deep-fried insects and other unusual culinary delights. The tour also offers a "Cooks in Tuk Tuks" class where participants can learn how to make some of the local delicacies in Cambodia.

The nine-day tailor-made tour then takes holidaymakers to Phnom Penh where they can visit the local attractions and enjoy guided tours of the local markets where they can sample the plethora of colourful exotic fruits and foods. There will be plenty of opportunities to dine at modern restaurants and traditional eateries that have resurrected the authentic Khmer cuisine.

Travellers will spend one night in the quaint riverside town of Kampot where they can take a 90-minute sunset cruise through fishing villages and a walking tour of the charming town.

The gastronomic Cambodia tour will end with two nights in the coastal resort town of Kep where tourists can savour fresh seafood before relaxing on the stunning beaches.

Maeve Nolan, the General Manager of Backyard Travel, stated:

"We're excited to add a new 'Taste of' tour to our culinary trip series, and especially happy to feature Cambodia. We hope this new tour will open traveller's eyes to the Cambodia's exciting emerging culinary scene while also allowing them the opportunity to see the country's most iconic sites and attractions."
