Culinary Vacations

A dedicated selection of journeys to Vietnam, Cambodia & China that showcase the main sights alongside cooking classes, innovative market tours and a chance to savor delectable regional cuisine from restaurants and authentic street-side eateries.

In Cambodia explore the temples of Angkor and the following day enjoy a full day of market tours and Khmer cooking classes. In Vietnam try fruit straight from an orchard in the Mekong Delta and take an early morning street-food walking tour through downtown Saigon. In China we’ll take an authentic Sichuan cooking class at a family home after exploring the historic walled city of Xian.

On each journey you will join a maximum of 16 other like-minded travelers, stay in quality 3-4 star hotels and have our expert English-speaking guides escort you through the culinary hot-spots of their home town.

I was in Vietnam a couple of weeks ago and took 2 tours arranged by your company. On both days, Tin was my tour guide. Tin’s knowledge, enthusiasm and passion made my investment with your company absolutely priceless. He is also enjoyable to be with, funny and very, very competent. Thanks so much!

Great Times, Great Food, Great People!!!

Thank Absolute Asia Tours for making our holiday in Vietnam extremely memorable. We were very happy with the itinerary, the hotels, the guides were all extremely kind and helpful. We wish we had spent more time exploring Vietnam and enjoying more moments with the lovely and friendly Vietnamese people.

My friend and I decided to travel to Vietnam for 15 Days in March

We had spoken to Travel Agents in England but they didn’t seem to be able to put a tour together how we wanted. We emailed Stephen at AAT explained that we wanted to see as much of Vietnam as possible but wanted a 3 day beach holiday at the end.
We didn’t want to go on a group tour and it was so much easier someone else doing the organising than doing it yourself.
Stephen put together a comprehensive itinerary which needed very little adding to it or changing
He organised all the drivers, guides, internal flights, boat tours and hotels.
The hotels that we stayed in were all of a high standard and had no complaints about them, they were all in good locations and at night we were able to walk out to eat in the local restaurants or night markets.
We visited Hanoi, Halong Bay, Hoi An, Hue, Saigon, Can Tho and finally a beach resort on Phu Quoc
The drivers and guides were always on time and the guides spoke good English and very knowledgeable.
Stephen communicated with us throughout the holiday checking that everything was going well.
We had a 6 hour wait between our Domestic and International flight home so he arranged for us to use the swimming pool and facilities at a hotel close to the airport, he sent a driver to pick us up at the airport and to return us in time for our International flight.
We just paid a deposit before travelling and paid the balance on arrival, couldn’t have been easier.
I would definitely use AAT again and would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone else.
Thank you for making our holiday interesting and memorable.
