We at the Food Travel Leisure (FTL) team are thrilled to announce that our culinary exploration compass is pointing towards Southeast Asia, the epicurean paradise that captivates food enthusiasts worldwide. This gastronomic adventure promises a wealth of cultural insights, new flavours, and of course, inimitable FTL-style fun.
We’ll kick start our food journey in the dynamic Cambodian capital, Phnom Penh. Known for its distinct Khmer cuisine, Phnom Penh’s markets are a sensory overload of exotic fruits, fragrant spices, and fresh seafood. Our local base, the luxurious Duong Chan Hotel, will offer us the perfect balance of excitement and tranquility, a calm oasis amidst the city’s hustle and bustle.
Our second stop is Siem Reap, home to the awe-inspiring temples of Angkor, and an emerging food destination in its own right. Siem Reap teems with both traditional eateries and innovative restaurants serving up local and fusion delicacies. As we delve into Siem Reap’s gastronomy, the Sabara Angkor Resort & Spa will be our tranquil hub, a place to rest and recharge as we immerse ourselves in our culinary adventures.
Following Cambodia, we’re bound for the vibrant capital of Vietnam, Hanoi. Renowned for its delicately balanced cuisine, Hanoi promises a gastronomic exploration filled with fascinating contrasts – from the legendary Pho to the beloved Bánh mì. To balance the city’s lively energy, we’ll find respite at the Super Hotel Candle, a haven of relaxation right in the heart of Hanoi.
We’ll conclude our culinary voyage in the bustling cityscape of Hong Kong, often referred to as the “World’s Food Fair”. From traditional Dim Sum to avant-garde fusion cuisine, the city’s food scene is as diverse as it is delicious. Our Hong Kong home, the sophisticated Royal Garden hotel, will offer us the perfect base from which to experience this culinary mecca.
This journey stands to enrich us all with a plethora of cultural insights, culinary knowledge, and unforgettable experiences. As we embark on this epicurean odyssey, we invite you, our FTL family, to join us in spirit. Stay tuned for our detailed reports and updates as we savor our way across Southeast Asia. Prepare for an exhilarating exploration of flavors and food narratives unlike any other!
