Travel Visa Requirements for an Asian Culinary Tour

by David | November 19th, 2010

There’s so much more to Asian food than Chinese buffets and sushi. To help spread the word, Asian restaurant chain Pei Wei is having a contest to find a new food blogger (h/t Gadling). The lucky winner will get take a two to three-week culinary tour of Asia and document his or her findings. Yum!

Per the Pei Wei website, here’s what it takes to win:

“A talent for writing, a boundless appetite and willingness to experiment with the unknown, an eye for the unforgettable image and the ability to capture it, comfort both on-camera and behind the lens, a spontaneous spirit but a grounded work ethic, and a passion for Asian cuisine.”

Basically, it’s a talent contest. You “audition” by writing as few as one or as many as 5 sample blog posts, and posting a YouTube video if desired.

Of course, there’s only one winner. What if you wanted to replicate the tour on your own? Although you won’t have Pei Wei’s retinue of chefs on hand, a quick Google search for “Asian culinary tours” makes it clear that you won’t lack for tour options.

To keep travel visa requirements from leaving a bad taste in your mouth, here’s a quick summary of the visa policies for each country:

  • China: You’ll need to apply for a visa before you travel. See Chinese Visa Requirements for Tourists for details.
  • Vietnam: Again, you’ll need to apply for a visa in advance. See Vietnamese Visa Requirements for Tourists for instructions.
  • South Korea: US citizens do not need a visa for stays of less than 90 days.
  • Thailand: Americans entering Thailand by air are eligible for a visa on arrival good for 30 days. If you enter by land, you’ll be issued a visa good for 15 days. You can also apply for a visa in advance, if desired.
