I AM NOT A GLUT­TON – I AM AN EX­PLORER OF FOOD

Escape! Malaysia - - Seoul -

IF THERE’S ONE THING TO KNOW ABOUT US ASIANS,

it’s that we have a ver­i­ta­ble ob­ses­sion with food. Food, and the act of eat­ing it, has had its sig­nif­i­cance in our cul­ture since the days of em­per­ors long past, and re­mains a vi­tal part of our lives to­day – we are (no­to­ri­ously) will­ing to travel far and wide, and spend in­or­di­nate amounts of time queu­ing for a sam­ple of what we be­lieve to be the best food in the world. It’s no won­der that cui­sine is as much a cru­cial part of our trav­els as his­tory, cul­ture, and ad­ven­ture. Here, we high­light a few food-themed itin­er­ar­ies that have caught our eye, whether it’s for their strong em­pha­sis on eat­ing lo­cal, their fu­sion of fash­ion and food, or their sig­nif­i­cance in un­cov­er­ing a des­ti­na­tion’s her­itage.and ev­ery­body knows: calo­ries don’t count when you’re on hol­i­day.
