DAY-TO-DAY

DAY 1: Tokyo

Upon arrival in Tokyo, the day is yours to spend at will. After checking into your lavish hotel, either the magnificent Tokyo Aman or equally sensational Tokyo Peninsula, feel free to take advantage of their opulent comforts and enjoy a relaxing evening, or if you’re feeling particularly adventurous, head into the bustling metropolis and, while experiencing the rush of Japan’s whirlwind culture, delight in an exquisite meal at a local restaurant.

DAY 2: Tokyo

Kick off the first day of exhibit exploration with a visit to the distinguished Art Triangle Roppongi, which collectively houses Tokyo’s National Art Centre, the Mori Art Museum (home to the Sky Deck, which boasts of an unparalleled view of Tokyo), and the Suntory Museum of Art. Afterwards, head to the Yanaka district – considered central in Tokyo’s “art zone” – to discover SCAI the Bathhouse. If he is available, you will enjoy lunch with the gallery’s innovative director. Round off the day’s exploration with the striking 21_21 Design Sight museum, or attend an optional porcelain painting session with an expert artisan.

DAY 3: Tokyo

Rise early for another full day of engaging activity, beginning with Tokyo’s influential MOMAT – the museum hosting Japan’s leading collection of modern art – or the awe-inspiring Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery, a brightly lit space known for its careful selection of mesmerizing exhibits. In the afternoon, take in a private collection by teamLab – a collaborative collective that seeks to unite different creative disciplines. Afterwards, you can take in an evening show, such as teamLab’s Jungle - Art Night.

DAY 4: Seoul

Head back to Tokyo airport for a short flight to Seoul, leaving ample time for a half day of exploration amidst this South Korean city’s vivid metropolis. Visit the Dongdaemun Design Plaza, which displays fascinating outer architecture, as well as various appealing exhibits within, including the beautiful Art Hall and different design museums. Following this, enjoy a stop at Gallery Hyundai, which aims to modernize the divide between past and present with exhibitions featuring both prominent Korean artists and others from overseas.

DAY 5: Seoul

Prepare for your first full day in Seoul with a visit to the National Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, a museum known for welcoming many different styles of artistic pursuit, while also employing architectural innovation. Later, explore the vibrant Seoul Arts Center for a true glimpse into the enchanting world of Korean music and art, followed by a stroll through the contemporary PKM Gallery and a coveted visit to the Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art, which caters to both modern and traditional tastes.

DAY 6: Shanghai

Commence the day with a one-hour flight from Seoul to Shanghai, before launching into your next adventure into the heart of Chinese culture. Experience a stirring study of a private collection and visits to impressive artist studios, ensuring that you have been properly introduced to Shanghai’s treasured art scene.

DAY 7: Shanghai

Lace up your walking shoes, and start the morning at 50 Moganshan Road – or M50 – an acclaimed modern art community hosting over a hundred public art studios and galleries. Next, visit the Museum of Contemporary Art, unless you are drawn instead to the Power Station of Art, which is also an adored haven for contemporary art. Later, enjoy an illuminating tour of MAB Society to discover more about the organization’s intriguing aim in using art to communicate cultural and international issues. If time permits, you can also visit the Rockbund Art Museum or ShanghART Gallery.

DAY 8: Kowloon

Settle in for a brief flight from Shanghai to Hong Kong, where you’ll check into the classically inspired Peninsula, with its soaring views of both the skyline and harbor, before commencing the afternoon in the city with a visit at a local artist studio and an optional private dinner with an esteemed expert from the art world.

DAY 9: Kowloon

Dive into history at the Asia Art Archive, which is both a collection of art documentation, as well as a community dedicated to using artistic vision to provide insight about the world. The rest of the day involves private expeditions to Sotheby’s Collection, the 10 Chancery Lane Gallery, and the White Cube Gallery, rounded off with a trip to the historic Pedder Building, constructed in true Beaux-Arts fashion. If you like, conclude the day with a dinner hosted in an exquisite gallery space.

DAY 10: Marina Bay

Return to the airport for your flight from Hong Kong to Singapore. Upon arrival at the elegant Fullerton Bay, enjoy a free afternoon relaxing, exploring or admiring the waterfront hotel’s glorious view of Marina Bay. In the evening, optional entertainment will be provided by Singapore’s adored Gardens by the Bay light show; a dazzling experience that will both delight and inspire, and offer you a glimpse into Singapore’s spirited culture.

DAY 11: Marina Bay

Gear up for the last full day of sightseeing with a visit to the Visual Arts Centre. Tucked within the serene oasis of the Dhoby Ghaut Green, you’ll be moved by the imaginative exhibits displayed within the sprawling, glass-house gallery. Afterwards, explore the biggest public collection of Southeast Asian art at the National Gallery Singapore. Later, revel in visits to the Gillman Barracks, a prominent arts cluster for contemporary works, and the Orchard Road Art Walk – known for its captivating outdoor art installations.

DAY 12: Departure

Climb aboard your private transfer to the airport for your onward travel, with a vast new appreciation for both traditional and contemporary art that spans cultures, and continents, alike.
