Explore Asia’s Modern Art Capitals with Remote Lands and Peninsula Hotel

Remote Lands has teamed up with Peninsula Hotels to offer guests a two-week trip that delves deep into the art scenes of Asia’s cultural capitals, including Bangkok, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, and Tokyo. The new itinerary, Journey Through Asia’s Contemporary Art Capitals, departing February 19, 2017, takes just 16 travelers behind the scenes of acclaimed art museums, galleries, and private collections, and gives them front-row seats to intimate artist panel discussions. In Bangkok, guests will sit down to a private lunch with some of the city’s leading contemporary art gallery owners and in Hong Kong, they’ll tour the collection of award-winning architect and artist William Lim. Highlights include a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the private art collection of world-renowned art dealer and collector Pearl Lam in her apartment in Shanghai and a morning in Beijing with former expatriate and one of China’s first graffiti and street artists Zhang Dali. Each night of the trip guests relax in five-star luxury at a Peninsula property. From $26,888; remotelands.com.
