Savour South-East Asian holidays tailored with gourmets in mind

Gourmet travel is constantly growing in popularity and Sens Asia Travel recently announced a new range of journeys that are tailor-made for travellers and food lovers looking to experience an authentic taste of South-East Asia.

These holidays are designed for small groups of adventurous travellers who want to catch iconic sights while at the same time tasting intriguing dishes that are only found off the mainstream routes.


Inspired by the mantra “You must taste a culture to understand a culture”, Sens Asia encourages travellers to explore Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand and Laos and uncover the flavours, smells, and dishes that are unique to each destination. 

In Vietnam, travellers can expect a 12-day journey from Northern Hanoi all the way to Vinh Long in the deep south. They can join a journey through the old and the new, visiting ancient towns, unspoilt cruising routes through Ha Long Bay and taste local delicacies including Pho Bo, Bun Tom Nuong Xa and Café Trung. 

The culinary and cultural experience in Northern Thailand lets travellers explore the bustling cities of Bangkok and Chiang Mai. Chill out by the canals of Bangkok savouring the spicy flavours of a steaming bowl of boat noodles, enjoy a fresh seafood dinner whilst cruising the Chao Phaya River and discover Issan cuisine at waterfall restaurants in Chiang Mai. 



Those looking to take some time for themselves can join a relaxing trip to Luang Prabang, the former royal capital of Laos and now a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Visitors can treat their eyes to the intricate details decorating the town's ancient temples then treat their taste buds to an array of traditional Laotian dishes such as herb crusted fish steamed in banana leaf or purple sticky rice in coconut milk with tamarind sauce. 

In Cambodia, travellers can experience one of South-East Asia’s most remarkable wonders, Angkor Wat in Siem Reap. Guests can explore majestic, ancient temples and rural floating villages whilst enjoying the delicious cuisine heavily influenced by Thai, Chinese and Vietnamese flavours.
