Browse our Asia Culinary Tours
Don’t be embarrassed! We know half the reasons you want to travel Asia involve eating. There’s no better way to fathom the cultural roots of a country than diving into its food. Make sushi in Tokyo or fish off the coast in Borneo. Taste the elusive flavors of life in Asia. Whether you’re staying in a guesthouse in the rainforest or elbowing past zealous clients in a street stall, it’s easy to do what the locals do. Just eat, drink, and eat some more.

What to Expect from an Asia Culinary Tour
Get personal recommendations from street food bloggers in Bangkok, or visit wet markets with accredited chefs in Hanoi. We always look to local experts first!
Shop for your own ingredients in swarming night markets. Check out spices you haven’t even heard of. Meet local culinary masters. Ride your bike around rice fields and mango plantations.
We’ll just leave this list: sticky rice, curried chicken, skewered prawns, fried noodles, spicy papaya salad. Not unusual enough? Try tarantula in Cambodia or fish sperm in Japan—local favorites.
The intricacies of regional cuisine are plenty within even one single country. For example, imagine the differing culinary traditions of Hindu Bali vs. Muslim Java in Indonesia. Or Cantonese cuisine vs. Szechuan.
You can try all the street food you want, but still, nothing beats a home-cooked family meal. Visit village farm houses and enjoy a homestay.
