The acclaimed Australian chef will join a three-day South-East Asian journey aboard the high-end Eastern & Oriental Express in March.

Food lovers can join Luke Mangan, best known for restaurants including Sydney's Mojo and Salt in Singapore, Tokyo and aboard five P&O cruise ships, on a culinary journey through South-East Asia as part of his new collaboration with luxury train and travel company Belmond.  

The trip will begin in Singapore, where guests can join Mangan on a morning food market exploration, before boarding the Eastern & Oriental Express sleeper train for a three-day journey through Malaysia from March 1-3.

On board, guests will be able to spend time with Mangan, get a personalised copy of his latest book Salt Grill: Fine Dining for the Whole Family, and taste his food at a special three-course dinner.

It costs from $US2488 ($3183) per person based on two people sharing a Pullman cabin, including 24-hour steward service, meals and drinks, and off-board excursions. 

Belmond is also partnering with Thai celebrity chef Ian Kittichai on a pair of three-night journeys from Bangkok to Singapore on November 22-25 this year and November 18-20 next year.

Both will feature breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner menus designed by Kittichai, along with a guided tour of the food market at Kanchanaburi. They cost from $US2790 ($3571).
