Back in January 2014, we gave up our lives in the UK and set off on an indefinite vegan travel adventure which without a doubt, turned out to be awesome. We visited multiple countries in Asia and then seemed to get happily stuck in Cambodia, where we set up Siem Reap Vegan Villa. Continue reading
Can we all just stop for a minute so we can talk about our vegan fine dining experience at the highest hotel in the world? You can probably tell it was exciting for us, right? Being anywhere that is the highest, tallest, biggest, hottest, smallest etc in the whole entire world always makes us a little excitable. When that experience involves awesome vegan food, then we practically lose our minds. We are of course talking about The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong where every element of what they offer is amongst the finest in the world.
Our vegan guide to Taipei was easy to write as Taipei is heaven for vegans. Continue reading
Our Vegan Guide to Cambodia will help you find somewhere to eat delicious vegan food whilst exploring this wonderful country; it lists all of our favourite restaurants, links to other useful online vegan travel information about Cambodia and also a few restaurants we’ve not visited yet but other vegan travellers tell us that we should!
We love Cambodia, the Kingdom of Wonder, where you can immerse yourself in rich culture and history and soak up the vibrance of daily life at every turn. See lush green rice paddies and picture postcard rural landscapes, visit rainforests and waterfalls, tropical beaches, riverside towns, floating villages or fast growing urban cities; Cambodia has something for everyone.
Recently, our love for raw vegan food was taken to new and dizzying heights when we took part in a course at Mathew Kenney Culinary in Thailand, followed by eating a vegan raw food dinner created by graduate chefs working at Evason Hua Hin (one of the most vegan friendly resorts we’ve ever stayed at).

Con Dao is one of those places which is still unspoilt by tourism. It has everything from beautiful beaches, local life and culture, history, natural beauty and even vegan food. Our Vegan Guide to Con Dao tells you everything we discovered during our 2 week trip to one of the best places to visit in Vietnam.
Wouldn’t it be great if every hotel had a ‘Vegan Corner’ – a special section on their menu that highlights the health benefits of a plant-based diet with a range of delicious dishes that are all 100% plant-based but also list their nutritional values for extra information? Continue reading

Siem Reap should most definitely be on your vegan travel hit list; you can see the magnificent temple ruins of Angkor Wat (and surrounding ruins of the ancient Kingdom of Angkor), eat great vegan food, enjoy cheap and chilled massages, shop in vibrant local markets or fairly trading boutiques; you can even stay in our very own 100% ‘Vegan VIlla’ AirBnB.
Because it’s such a popular destination with a huge local and international community, there are vegan options from a range of cuisines. You can get everything from a Southern Indian masala dosa to a kick ass vegan burger, as well as plenty of local Cambodian food in between.
There’s something for all budgets and occasions; you can eat dinner for $1 in a busy local noodle shop or eat in one of Asia’s top 50 restaurants and there’s restaurants that support local charities or train disadvantaged local people too.
Add a good variety of vegan Khmer street food and delicious vegan versions of the local cuisine including fresh spring rolls, creamy coconut based curries and spicy peanutty dips and you’ll find it hard to go hungry here.
Always committed to supporting our fellow vegan travellers, we’re sharing our favourite spots to eat with you in this Vegan Guide to Siem Reap.
