What to Expect from an Asia Culinary Tour?

Follow our guides to open-air bazaars, learn about exotic indigenous spices, fruits, and vegetables, and take lessons with local cooks who are passionate about expressing their unique heritage through drool-worthy food. The possibilities for your bespoke Asia culinary holiday are as diverse as the ingredients you’ll encounter. Create your own delicious trip with Backyard Travel.


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.

Culinary Geography

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.


Take cooking lessons with local chefs and experts. With an Asia culinary holiday, you also get the opportunity to be hands on. Learn the best way — by doing.
