Best cities in Asia to visit for chowing?

Lina | Aug 23, 2009 11:51 AM

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?
