I know, it's insanely broad question! I'm going backpacking for 6-12 months around Asia starting in October and I have no itinerary as of yet.
I would love to take cooking classes in as many countries as I can. I'm also very interested in street food.
The countries I'm thinking of visiting are: Japan, China, Hong Kong, Korea, Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia and Indonesia. This is very flexible, though. The only one that is definite is Japan because that is where I will start.
So what cities would you recommend? If you're a local, any chance you'd be willing to go out to lunch with me?
