Trip Overview:

You told us you wanted plant-based travel options and we listened; this is our newest and most innovative travel experience yet! Picture this: Wandering through the lively streets of Phnom Penh savoring the local street food, exploring the artistic charm of Battambang’s vibrant countryside, and discovering the ancient temples of Angkor Wat in Siem Reap — all while indulging in mouthwatering vegan delights.

Eating a plant-based diet doesn’t mean you need to miss out on the authentic dishes locals love. We’ve worked with our favorite local vendors and restaurants to offer vegan versions of their traditional dishes. Try all of the mango, papaya, and banana leaf salads, national dishes like tofu amok curry and mushroom lok lak, savory crepes made with turmeric and coconut milk, a private cooking class, and SO MUCH MORE!

Choosing a vegan diet isn’t just a personal choice; it’s a powerful way to make a positive impact on our planet. It significantly reduces water consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and deforestation – all issues we face in SE Asia which is experiencing urban development at record pace. Whether you’re a dedicated vegan or just curious about the lifestyle, this is a great way to travel with a group of like-minded adventurers who share a passion for delicious food and a positive impact.

Yes, this is a vegan food-forward trip. But Cambodia is so much more than the unforgettable cuisine, which is why we’ve taken this trip a step further. If you want to experience the real Cambodia, everything from today’s modern capital to remote villages and rice wine distillers, then you’re in for a delicious adventure.  If you want an authentic experience meeting locals, including our team of top-rated guides, for a true glimpse into all edges of this incredible country, then this is the trip for you.

Discover Authentic Cambodia Multi-Day Trip Philosophy

Our Philosophy.

We’re a small team of passionate locals who plan trips the same way we like to travel. Our trips are a perfect blend of well-researched meals and culinary activities, up-close and personal experiences that give you insight into the local culture and history, and ample free time for you to explore and relax on your own. The places we visit and sightsee won’t perfectly match what your guidebook suggests, and we don’t think of ourselves as guides – we want you to feel like you’re traveling with a new friend. Our ultimate goal is providing a worry-free trip where you’ll love every bite and every mile.

Frequently Asked Questions:

First things first. Cambodia doesn’t have many vegan-only restaurants. On this trip, most of the restaurants we visit are everyday restaurants that are able to provide us with vegan options.

In general, our goal is to offer vegan travelers the same dishes that a non-vegan traveler or local would enjoy. Of course this isn’t always possible, but we are confident you’ll walk away with an extremely strong insight into our cuisine and food culture.

This is our bread and (vegan) butter, so to speak. If you know anything about Lost Plate, you know that you’ll never go hungry. All meals are included on this trip and offer a huge variety of dishes in large quantities. 

Lunches and dinners also include beer. Non-alcoholic options such mineral water and soft drinks will always be available. Drinks like wine and cocktails will not be available at the restaurants we visit, however we do offer them when noted in the itinerary.

We eat where the locals eat (not where the tourists eat). These are often small, family run eateries that specialize in regional dishes. It requires extensive research and repetitive testing to ensure the safety of the food we eat. We personally build relationships with each restaurant and vendor that we visit, and locals don’t frequent a place if their food isn’t tasty, unsafe, or unhygienic. Of course hygiene will be different here than in your home country, and its important to understand that it doesn’t mean the food is unsafe to eat.

We have a zero-tolerance policy with all of our vendors. This means that if we get sick or feel uncomfortable after a meal, we will not visit again. With that said, it’s not unusual for western stomachs to need some time in order to adjust to the local cuisine and ingredients. If you’re well-traveled, you already understand, but everyone should be prepared to tolerate these adjustments.

This trip will be difficult for anyone with severe allergies to common foods (like peanuts) as we cannot guarantee the absence of those foods or that cross-contamination won’t occur.

Gluten-free diets can be accommodated as the primary carb in Cambodia is rice and rice noodles. Those that can digest soy sauce will have more options. 

Please let us know when paying your deposit if you have any special dietary requirements, or contact us prior to booking if you have any questions.

We’ve rated this trip a level of 3 out of 4. While there is no strenuous activity required, you will be on and off your feet throughout every day as we sightsee and explore. This will be done during the day, when temperatures and humidity are high. Due to the nature and logistics of this trip, we are not always able to make adjustments for individuals. Therefore, the trip will be best enjoyed for those who are physically fit and have an adventurous spirit.

Out of the enjoyment for all guests, we do not recommend young or pre-teen children on this trip. Due to the schedule each day, it is important that we stay on time, and therefore will not always have an opportunity for you to take breaks or go back to your hotel for rest. This is a fast-paced, 7-day trip in a hot and tropical climate, so it is necessary for each guest to have the necessary stamina to enjoy that environment.

Due to limited capacities on our trips, discounts are not generally provided for children and are assessed on a case-by-case basis (largely depending on your hotel room arrangement).

We ask that families with pre-teen children exercise their own judgement and contact us prior to booking. We are happy to accept private trip requests for families with small children.

Flights to and from Cambodia are not included. This gives you the flexibility to arrive and depart when you would like, on the flights of your choice. All transportation done during the trip will be done by private VIP van.

Please note that this trip will begin and end in different cities.

All nationalities (aside from a few SEA countries) require a tourist visa when entering Cambodia. This visa can either be obtained online prior to your arrival, or at the airport upon arrival. The cost for the visa is between $30-36 USD.

In general, it is not necessary to receive any special vaccinations when visiting Cambodia. With that said, we always suggest following your local CDC guidelines. Please conduct your own research, ask a medical professional, and make your own personal decision based on what you are comfortable with.

Yes! Feel free to stay extra days before and/or after our itinerary. We are able to pass on our special hotel rates so you don’t need to switch hotels as well. Just let us know your dates and we will check rates and availability for you.

Please note that airport pickup and drop-offs to/from the airport are not available for those that arrive before our itinerary starts or depart after it ends.

The minimum number of guests for this trip is 4, and the maximum is 12. All of our trips guarantee a small, intimate group for your pleasure and enjoyment – no big busses and tour guides waving flags here.

Your trip will have one Lost Plate trip leader with you the entire time and one driver/vehicle that stays with us for all inter-city transportation. In addition, you will be joined by a local guide when visiting local sights.

All of our guides and trip leaders are employees of Lost Plate and trained by our founder. We do not outsource staff like other travel companies.

Cambodia has a tropical climate with warm temperatures throughout the year. In other words, it’s hot and steamy. The good news is that you can throw on shorts and a tshirt every day without thinking twice. The climate is also characterized by two seasons:

The dry season runs from December through April, when it brings sunny and consistently dry weather. Temperatures in December and January are also the “coolest” of the year, with highs rarely above 30 degrees celsius and lows that may dip into the upper teens celsius. March and April are the hottest months of the year (reaching unbearable), before the rains come.

The rainy season, which runs from May through November, see hot temps that are accompanied with high humidity. Regular rains help cool things down from the midday sun.

Of course climate these days is not clockwork, so you can expect some fluctuation with each “shoulder season.” There are advantages and disadvantages to each season, and in general, it is fine to visit Cambodia during any time of year. We offer regular departures year-round, but limit them during the hottest months (March-May) and offer more during the peak season (November-February).

Yes! This trip is available for private groups of 2 or more people (based on availability). Pricing will increase for private groups under 8 people. At this time we are not offering customized itineraries. Contact us with your request and we’ll let you know specific details and pricing.

  • Transportation / flight tickets to/from Cambodia.
  • Cambodia tourist visa fee (approx. $35 USD)
  • Shopping and activities during your free time.
  • Each guest should obtain their own health and/or travel insurance coverage.
  • Gratuities for your trip leader.

Our trips are in high demand and have limited spots. Deposits are non-refundable for any reason, including sickness, unless the trip is cancelled by Lost Plate due to the minimum number of guests not being met. Balance payments for the trip are required 14 days before the trip begins and are not refundable if you need to cancel.
