Browse bustling local food markets and the best food hawker centers, sample local culinary specialties, visit the most interesting Chinese and Hindu temples, and learn about Peranakan culture and cuisine. Explore amazing contemporary architecture and design highlights such as the Marina Bay Sands complex and Gardens by the Bay, a wonderland of theme gardens, waterways and "supertrees." Also see traditional shophouses and Chinese Baroque architecture, as well as British colonial-era black-and-white buildings in the Historic District.

Other options include visiting the beautiful Botanic Gardens and National Orchid Garden, touring Jurong Bird Park, or exploring the Southern Ridges, including the elevated forest walk and Henderson Waves, an architecturally striking pedestrian walkway that offers visitors amazing views of Singapore's skyline, parks and islands. For travelers interested in art, touring can also include Singapore's top art galleries and museums such as the National Gallery Singapore, Asian Civilisations Museum, Peranakan Museum, National Museum of Singapore or Museum of Contemporary Arts. There will also be time to explore historic quays and dining and shopping districts, as well as time to enjoy traditional pastimes such as afternoon tea at Raffles. Upon request, Artisans of Leisure can arrange additional culinary experiences such as spice garden tours and cooking classes.

Fly to Bali and enjoy several days of luxury and beachside relaxation in Jimbaran Bay or Nusa Dua. Enjoy flexible touring with a private guide and driver, including temples such as Pura Tanah Lot and Pura Taman Ayun, time to browse upscale boutiques in Seminyak, and other highlights such as a visit to a local turtle conservation center. One evening, attend a Kecak dance performance at the cliffside temple of Pura Luhur Uluwatu. There will also be ample time for you to enjoy the resort's spa, beach, golf, yoga, water activities and fine dining.

One morning, learn to cook Indonesian dishes in a private cooking class. One evening, attend a Balinese dance performance at Ubud's royal palace. During free time, enjoy the town's many cafes and boutiques, and take advantage of your private plunge pool and the resort spa. Artisans of Leisure can also arrange additional activities in the region, such as river rafting, hiking, biking and local craft workshops.

End at an exclusive luxury beach resort on the island of Sumba.

Testimonials

We absolutely LOVED India in every way! The cookery lesson and lunch in Udaipur was great…the lunch was delicious, the house was lovely and they were so warm and welcoming. 
~ R.L., Washington, D.C.

Japan was excellent—we all had a blast. Your attention to detail and your ability to be foodie-focused and find outstanding guides sets you apart.
~ R.S., St. Petersburg, FL

One of the highlights of the trip to Bali was the cooking class you arranged in Ubud. Our instructor was the owner of the restaurant and they were so accommodating to our tastes and created a menu just for us.
