16th May 2011 Print

To mark Gordon Ramsey’s new TV series, “Gordon’s Great Escape South East Asia”, leading Asia specialist, Travel Indochina, is offering a fantastic £100pp discount on all advertised prices on their culinary discovery tours to Vietnam and Cambodia.

This exclusive offer, which applies to bookings made this May*, presents a wonderful opportunity for guests to explore the regional cuisine, cook with the locals and savour the highlights of these two fascinating countries.

Travel Indochina’s popular 11-day “Vietnam Culinary Discovery” tour gives customers the chance to explore Vietnam’s traditional markets, test their skills at local cooking schools and enjoy mouth-watering cuisine at some of the country’s best local restaurants. This tour also includes a seafood feast onboard an overnight cruise through the jaw-dropping islands of Halong Bay and an off-the-beaten-track tour of the Mekong Delta to sample fruit picked straight from the orchard. Clients will also uncover the historical charms of Hue and Hoi An before the culinary journey draws to a close on the buzzing streets of Saigon with a bowl of ‘pho’ – noodle soup to you and me! Prices (based on twin share) now from £1,085 per person.

Alternatively, the “Vietnam and Cambodia Culinary Discovery” tour is perfect for those looking to get under the skin of two destinations during a single trip to Indochina. This 15-day culinary adventure will take in the highlights of Vietnam before venturing to Siem Reap, home to Cambodia’s incredible and enchanting temples of Angkor. A spectacular sunrise visit to Angkor Wat, entered via the lesser-used Eastern Gate allows for a more intimate experience, and a full-day Khmer cooking class which includes a visit to local markets, are just two of the many unforgettable experiences available on this journey. Prices (based on twin share) now from £1,710 per person.

Gordon Ramsey’s latest Great Escape with Channel 4 follows his journey through South East Asia, as he learns to cook the dishes of Thailand, Cambodia, Malaysia and Vietnam. The new series, which kicked off in Cambodia, features 100 new recipes inspired by the tastes and experiences that he encounters along the way.

Fans of the show should keep their eyes peeled on the Channel 4 website, where one lucky viewer and their guest can be in with the chance of winning a tailor-made, once-in-a-lifetime escape to Vietnam – courtesy of Travel Indochina!
