Backyard Travel, the online boutique travel agency specializing in unique, insider tours throughout Asia, today unveiled an exclusive culinary travel writing tour through Cambodia.

(TRAVPR.COM) THAILAND - February 13th, 2015 - With just the one departure date on Friday 22nd May 2015, the eight day ‘Eat, Learn, Love Cambodia Tour’ has been carefully put together in collaboration with travel and food writer Lara Dunston, contributor to Australian Gourmet Traveller, the Guardian, Sunday Times Travel Magazine and many more.

Crafted with the creative foodie traveler in mind, the insider’s tour offers a uniquely immersive and intimate experience of Cambodia’s culture, cuisine, arts, and history, with space for just 12 people on this small group experience.

Over the course of the trip, travelers will visit some of the country’s most iconic locations, as well as lesser seen sites, deconstructing Khmer cuisine, delving into history and, with host Lara’s guidance, developing their passion for culinary travel writing. Professional photographer Terence Carter will also join the tour, offering tips on travel and food photography.

To provide insight into the roots of Cambodian cuisine, the tour includes guided visits to key cultural landmarks such as Angkor Wat, the riverside town of Battambang, and many Angkor temples including lesser-known Banteay Chhmar. Along the way, travelers will scour local village markets for fresh produce, taste local wine at a vineyard, and sample the most authentic flavors in the country, from street-side vendors to top-billed restaurants and everything in between.

A particular highlight of the Eat Learn Love tour is the hand-picked accommodation the Backyard Travel team have selected. Designed to create a truly unforgettable experience, travelers stay at the stunning Sala Lodges in Siem Reap which offers a unique blend of rustic luxury; atmospheric Maisons Wat Kor, charmingly set in a village of Battambang; and also Banteay Chhmar, a charming homestay in rural Cambodia, offering a true taste of Cambodian warmth and hospitality.

This insiders tour of Cambodia is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for travelers to come together over a shared passion for food, writing, photography and Southeast Asian culture,” said Backyard Travel’s General Manager Maeve Nolan. “We’re especially proud to be working alongside Lara and Terence to offer not only an immersive, insider exploration into Cambodian cuisine, but provide valuable skills travelers can take with them wherever their future journeys lead them.”  

The unique tour has just one departure date on Friday 22nd May 2015. It is priced at $1998 per person, sharing a double/twin room, including daily breakfast, five lunches and seven dinners. All excursions are fully guided, tours and transfers are by private air-conditioned vehicle (unless stated) and all entrance fees mentioned in the visits are included.
