Luxury Asian Culinary Holidays with Remote Lands
Asia's cuisine is famous the world over, and the diversity between regions is incredibly diverse, from sashimi in Japan to the spicy curries of India and Thailand to the fresh seafood of Vietnam to the Arab-style breads and skewers of Uzbekistan. Asia boasts a rapidly growing range of Michelin star restaurants in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Bangkok, many of which are ranked amongst the world's finest, and at the other end of the spectrum, some of the most interesting street food experiences.
In this newsletter, we embark on culinary tours of Vietnam, Japan, South Korea and Hong Kong, as well as paying a visit to Asia's top-rated restaurant, Bangkok's Nahm. If our ideas make you hungry for travel, email us on [email protected] and we will help plan your own tasty culinary holiday.
