Meet Your Host

Sam Zien - The Cooking Guy

Sam the Cooking Guy is a celebrity chef based out of San Diego, California. He has won 15 Emmys, written 3 cookbooks and opened a taco restaurant with a twist, all while making cooking casually understandable. With no fancy equipment and by speaking English instead of ‘chef-speak'. He currently has two shows, the TV show SAM THE COOKING GUY, and an online show, SAM THE COOKING GUY ONLINE. There’s no foie gras and no white truffle oil, he makes food as delicious as it is accessible, food that’s ‘big in taste and small in effort’. It’s a handful of ingredients and a few steps – that’s it.

The Itinerary

Accommodation

Metropolitan by COMO, Bangkok

The minimalist Metropolitan by COMO, Bangkok is a haven for those who love contemporary, slick city escapes. It combines an urban edge with Asian flair and the result is the coolest hotel in Bangkok, located along the vibrant Sathorn Road. The infamous Met Bar is a great place for evening cocktails and one of the coolest hangouts in the city.

Shinta Mani Angkor - Siem Reap

Shinta Mani Angkor is arguably Siem Reap’s most contemporary boutique hotel. With just 39 rooms and a 15-minute drive from Angkor Wat, it’s a fantastic option for those wanting a super slick and stylish boutique hotel in a great location. The property feels intimate, yet there is a good range of facilities with a soothing spa and cool pool located within a gorgeous tropical courtyard.

Four Seasons Resort The Nam Hai - Hoi An

A stylish and chic beach retreat on the deserted sands of Ha My Beach, the luxury Four Seasons Hoi An is just a short distance from the historic town of Hoi An, offering a great combination of relaxation and cultural opportunities. During your stay enjoy the resort’s complimentary activities – work up an appetite with a morning cycle round the rice paddy fields or meet Mr Dung who has climbed coconut trees for 35 years, he will climb up one of the 4,500 coconut trees and serve one straight to you.
