Chop, slice and chomp your way through the diverse flavours of South East Asia on this mouthwatering Real Food Adventure from Vietnam to Cambodia. From pho and ancient buildings in Hanoi to banh khoai and imperial citadels in Hue, banh xeo in the lantern-lit streets of Hoi An to banh canh in the pulsating markets of Ho Chi Minh City, become intimately acquainted with Vietnam’s cuisine and its tightly woven place within its culture. Then cross into Cambodia where – with a delicate balancing of peppers and by drawing influence from French and Thai cooking – the nation has created an unpretentious but delectable cuisine all its own. Combined with tours of the spectacular Angkor Wat Temple complex, homestays in the Mekong and an overnight cruise around Halong Bay, this really is a Real Food Adventure with the lot! Highlights/r/n
