Reference number: Craft Beers of Asia - Japan and Vietnam

From: £2702.00

We thought long and hard about which countries showcase the best of Asia's craft-beer scene at the moment and after much deliberation (and some essential research!) settled on Japan and Vietnam. Two destinations that contrast wonderfully, offering a heady mix of Asia both old and new. This tour is perfect for anyone with an interest in food and drink! It showcases the must-see highlights of both countries as well as offering a first-hand experience of the burgeoning world of craft beer in Asia, complemented of course by the flavours of Japanese and Vietnamese cuisines.

Starting in the metropolis of Tokyo you'll experience where the locals eat and drink on a high energy street food tour, before jumping on the shinkansen to Japan's cultural capital, Kyoto. Here you will explore the city on two wheels and sample some of our recommended craft beer bars. Your final stop in Japan is Osaka where there will be the opportunity to sample some of Japan's finest foods and it's nightlife.

Travelling onward to Vietnam, this stage of the trip introduces you to Vietnam's highlight destinations - Hanoi, Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh City. Over the next 8 days, enjoy the traditional beer making processes of bia hoi in the north of the country and the emerging craft beer scene of the south.

This is a dynamic holiday designed to show you the highlights of these two contrasting destinations. If you would prefer a more relaxed travel programme, we will be happy to oblige. We can also tailor this holiday to meet your exact needs - your holiday, your way.
