Vegan Culinary Cruises’ LGBTQ-focused cruise around Vietnam and Cambodia is to set sail on July 4 next year. 

The week-long Mekong river cruise has been curated by vegan blogger and event planner Sean O’Callaghan – otherwise known as Fat Gay Vegan, and will stop off in cities such as Siem Reap, Angkor Ban, and Ho Chi Min.

“Our all-inclusive program includes delicious vegan cuisine, thought-provoking lectures, entertainment, and fabulous onboard programming, along with local tours at each locale we visit,” the company’s website states. 

‘Safe and relaxed’

O’Callaghan said: “As a gay person, I have often longed for an LGBT-friendly vegan vacation opportunity. I know what it is like to put a lot of effort into planning and paying for a holiday and I want to know that every part of my trip celebrates who I am.

“My partner and I want to feel safe and relaxed whether we are in our cabin, sharing cocktails in the bar, or dining together at night. Vegan Culinary Cruises helped me turn this dream into a reality for me and my LGBT community.”

Although the cruise is ‘focused on celebrating LGBT community members’ – the travel company state on its website non-LGBT friends and family members are also welcome.
