Food and Nutrition

Food in Asia is its own adventure! No matter where you travel with Grasshopper
Self-guided, you will be sure to discover some of the best food in the world.


Asian cuisine is as diverse as its geography and its peoples, with a staggering variety of ingredients, flavours and cooking techniques. It’s also filled with nutrient-dense fruit and vegetables, lean proteins and adequate amounts of fat and carbohydrates for energy. 

Fortunately, this means you’ll not only be spoilt for choice but you will have no trouble fuelling your ride and maintaining your performance. 

Each of our Self-guided tours includes a supplied iPad with an eBook that suggests where to eat along your route. We've even included examples of their menu and our recommended dish combinations for optimal energy and replenishment.
