Asia holiday ideas

The dream Asia holiday looks different for everyone, which is why no two trips we create look the same, either.

Asia experiences

From hiking the steep trails of Laos’ misty cloud forests to eating sea urchin freshly caught by Jeju Island’s female free divers, the best trips are made up of experiences that are special because they’re utterly unique to the destination you’re in.

Chiang Mai

Heavily influenced by Laos and Myanmar, northern Thai — or Lanna — cuisine is totally different from Thai food as you know it.

At Pantawan you won’t just whip up some dishes, you’ll learn about the local food culture, hear personal stories, and get tips on how to use your newfound skills back at home. Begin with a tour of the local fresh market, then cook your own curry noodles, spicy laab or mango sticky rice back at the school’s beautiful gardens.
