Tenina's foodie trips are tailored specifically for each destination but all will include the following:

Unique & tailored experiences, not available to any other groups

Our tours have unique, private experiences that you wouldn't be able to access on your own or as a member of the general public.

In Vietnam, you get to dine with a Princess! You will be amazed at the beautiful gardens of a private compound and home museum of royalty! The Princess House is a private residence and the home of one of the last royal descendants. You will be treated to a traditional Royal Lunch and be entertained with traditional Vietnamese music by our host.

Be spoilt with a wonderful goodie bag

Our foodie trip guests are our VIPs. Each guest will receive a goodie bag with hand-picked items we'll know you'll enjoy.

Luxurious and boutique accommodation

We handpick each accommodation choice on all our trips. All hotels are 5 or 6 stars with unique personalities to match the region.

In the past we have stayed at super exclusive hotels such as The Intercontinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort in Vietnam and The Siam hotel in Thailand, the Capitol Kempinski in Singapore, the Cascais Miragem in Portugal.

They will be your home away from home and you'll look forward to returning after each exciting day.

Relax and unwind after a busy day of sightseeing (and eating) in well-appointed and comfortable rooms where every last detail has been thought of.

Revive and refresh in the resort pools. Order a drink or snack by the pool - some even have pool bars - no need to get out of the water!

You'll feel and be treated like royalty.

Spoil yourself with some pampering. Spa treatment included in the trip price.

Our trips all include a spa treatment at one of the tranquil hotel spas. Feel the tension slip away as you enjoy a massage of your choosing. These treatments are some of the best we've experienced with all the added touches that leave you feeling truly pampered.

Hands-on cooking experiences

In all of our destinations we'll get to enjoy at least one hands-on cooking experience.

In Thailand we enjoy a market tour to collect ingredients for a cooking experience at the Blue Elephant Cooking School. Cook some of Thailand's famous and favourite dishes in this 5 hour cooking adventure. Blue Elephant’s Bangkok outpost is brought to life in a traditional colonial style home with an elegant dining room that fills nightly with out-of-towners and locals here for a special occasion. The century-old Bangkok mansion is listed by Thailand’s Fine Arts Department and is absolutely instagrammable at every turn. The Blue bar was my favourite space, though the dining room, where you will eat the fruits of your labours after the class, is also very special.

In Hoi An, Vietnam visit a local market where you will find plenty to taste and smell. You'll shop for some final ingredients for your Red Bridge Cooking School cooking class. As an extra bonus the cooking school has a lovely pool to cool down in before we start cooking. Order a drink of your choice and sip it as you cool off before we launch into an amazing hands-on cooking experience. Learn the secrets of Pho, BBQ Lemongrass Shrimp and amazing Chicken salad with the totally delicious crispy rice crackers.

A street food experience

What better way to encounter the true tastes and culture of a destination than with a street food experience?

On our Thailand trip you'll be picked up by tuk tuk and guided around the streets of Bangkok to experience the best pad Thai in Bangkok, so good that it has attracted Bib Gourmand attention, to Ice Cream Hot pot, to suckling pig to traditional wedding desserts. The sights, the sounds, the smells of Bangkok food cuisine will charm you (and over feed you!)

In Hoi An, Vietnam we will be picked up for a Vespa ride Street Food Safari tour. Ride on the back of a Vespa as you discover roads that no cars drive on, through the fields and onto little restaurants that can only be accessed by Vespa. Taste some of the famous street foods and feel the Vietnamese foodie vibe as you meet with friendly locals who really cannot do enough for you. They love sharing their food passion with visitors. Then we take a little boat trip down a magical river filled with lanterns and candles and light your own floating candle. The Venice of Vietnam. It is so beautiful!

A fine dining experience

In Bangkok, we have an incredible Michelin starred dining experience at Savelberg restaurant. Thermomix is in high use in this restaurant and we can guess which dishes they use it for! We will experience the 7 course menu which changes seasonally, so it is always new and exciting.

In Vietnam we enjoy the best Gala dinner of all our foodie events ever. Set in the very French La Maison 1888 restaurant, at the Intercontinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort, this night will be one to always remember. Led by Michelin Starred chef Pierre Gagnaire this meal will amaze and delight.

Cultural experiences

In Thailand we visit the Mae Klong and Floating markets. We will sip Thai Iced Tea as we watch the markets along the railway fold up like umbrellas, to allow the train (yes, actual full sized train!!) to pass through. Then we will take a stroll through the markets, they go for miles and there is much to see and taste, and you can purchase some very delicious desserts that are sold on the street, mostly made from coconut products and lots of sugar! We will take a boat ride into the floating markets where you may shop (they expect you to buy something!!) and watch the amazing sights that are everywhere.

We also visit the Jodd Fairs Night Market, home to over 700 stalls filled with food, homewares, souvenirs, clothing, jewellery, tech items and anything else you can imagine.

In Hue, Vietnam we visit to the Tomb of Khai Dinh, an elaborate and amazing edifice celebrating the afterlife of the last Emperor of Vietnam. You will be amazed at the colours and detail of the craftsmanship of the tomb and there are loads of photo opportunities. We also visit the Imperial Citadel, complete with its miles and miles of gardens, palaces and history all within a walled city.

Free time to spend as you wish.

Each of our trips allows you free time to spend as you desire. Simply relax by the pool at the hotel (they're all so sumptuous that they're often hard to leave), shop 'til you drop or visit additional cultural attractions. We'll have many suggestions of where to visit.
