Asian food in all its sweet and sour glory continues to influence world cuisine. Ginger, cinnamon, pepper and turmeric were the stuff of legend in the 1600s, and sticky stir-fries, fragrant curries and juicy dumplings have all made their mark on today’s global palate. But nothing beats the real thing, fresh from the wok. Come with us on a food tour through the night markets of Thailand, chaotic Vietnamese beer halls and the delicate teahouses of Japan. One tip? Pack stretchy pants.

Meet our local leaders

Chinese food is very different to Western food. There is a big variety depending on the province you visit. In the north-west, people eat a lot of kebabs, while in Beijing there’s a lot of savoury and less spicy food. In southern China, there is not much spice either but a lot of dim sums and snacks. Every region is quite different.
