Amans, Peninsulas, and Michelin Guides - oh my! (Asia Trip 2019)

Here I’ll be chronicling our recent Asia trip through Singapore, Shanghai, Hangzhou, Beijing, Osaka, Kyoto and Tokyo! (May 9 - 31). Sorry for slow updates; just returned home and sorting through all my notes and pictures!

These were the hotels and rooms we ended up in each:
  • 2 x Duplex Suite @ Six Senses Duxton (5 nights)
  • Grand Deluxe River Room + Deluxe Garden Room @ Peninsula Shanghai (2 nights)
  • Deluxe Village Suite + Village Suite @ Amanfayun (2 nights)
  • Beijing Suite @ Peninsula Beijing (3 nights)
  • Grand Deluxe Room + Skyline Deluxe Room @ St. Regis Osaka (2 nights)
  • Luxury Size Corner Room (Main Building) @ Hiiragiya Ryokan (3 nights)
  • 2 x Deluxe Palace Garden Rooms @ Aman Tokyo (5 nights)
I’ll also talk about our meals, mostly focusing on the Michelin guide hotspots but also discussing some of our other favorites we got to try. Here were most of the dinners:

Singapore: Shisen Hanten (2* Michelin Stars), Candlenut (1*), Violet Oon at the National Gallery

Shanghai: Ultraviolet by Paul Pairet (3*), Sense 8 Xintiandi

Beijing: King’s Joy, DaDong

Osaka/Hyogo: Ca sento (3*), epaís (Bib)

Kyoto: All meals at Hiiragiya

Tokyo: Higashiazabu Amamoto (2*), Yunke (2*), L'effervescence (2*), Ishikawa (3*), Fukamachi (1*), Ushigoro S. Ginza

I’ll walk through the cities one by one, and try and upload as many pictures as I can once I can sort through our thousands of pictures!
