yoga and amazing food, where?!I have two or three weeks, I want to spend at least a week somewhere that offers yoga classes.
I've been to cambodia twice and did rather like sihanoukville and siem reap, phnom penh maybe I just didn't see the great parts but I don't think I'd go back. I was shocked to see how much siem reap had changed from my first visit in -6 to 2011.. I think it might be worth while spending a week somewhere in cambodia to see how much it has changed again but I'm not sure.
Any beautiful places for yoga recs?
Foody recs all seem to be vietnam but this is something I'll look into more.
I am planning to leave at the start of march for most of march and will be flying into kuala lumpur
I guess the other two weeks will be filled with a whoooole lotta eating, eating that isn't vegetarian or vegan as is so often the case in yoga retreats/ashrams.. and fair enough but after a week of that I will eat grilled mystery meat things on sticks wherever I can.. so probably a good idea to do the yoga :)
Thanks and happy travels!

1Yoga for travelers hasn't taken off as much in Vietnam or Cambodia the way it has in Thailand. However, there are a few options. An American guy is running the Hariharalaya yoga retreat center in Siem Reap, http://hariharalaya.wordpress.com/, and NataRaj Yoga, http://www.yogacambodia.com/, has classes in Phnom Penh and occasional retreats to the beaches or jungles. In Vietnam it was tough to find a class in English but there are loads of classes in Vietnamese. Problem is those aren't usually anywhere near where travelers stay. Some may have sprung up since I was there though. To me Chiang Mai, Thailand is the hub of mixing awesome food with great yoga but it depends on what your looking for.
