The Bourdain Series
August 29 – September 3, 2019

The Bourdain Series

Singapore, Malaysia

Our first excursion in the Bourdain Series is the gastro-tourist center that is Singapore.  Bourdain said, “New York may be the city that never sleeps, but Singapore’s the city that never stops eating. For a gastro-tourist, somebody who travels to eat, any kind of serious eater, Singapore’s probably the best place you can go for maximum bang in a minimum period of time.”  We couldn’t have said it better.  Your adventure begins as you arrive in Singapore’s infamous airport – complete with hanging gardens, movie theaters, world-class shopping and more.  From there, you will be transported to one of the most iconic hotels in the world.  During our stay, we will walk in Anthony’s footsteps and visit many of the locations featured in Parts Unknown.  Add Gardens by the Bay, an art walk and the Singapore Flyer and this will be a trip you’ll never forget.
