The Hairy Bikers' Asian Adventure



In their most adventurous road trip yet, the Hairy Bikers tour the birthplaces of favourite Asian cuisines.

In their most adventurous, far-flung road trip yet, the Hairy Bikers are touring the birthplaces of our favourite Asian cuisines – the food we Brits know from our local takeaways and high street restaurants.

As they travel, the Bikers are immersed in the lives of the colourful characters they meet in Asia’s diverse cultures. With incredible access to hidden worlds – from a sumo wrestling stable in Japan to a hill tribe in remote Northern Thailand – the Bikers will uncover the food secrets of these countries and get under the skin of the local way of life.

They’ll live, cook, eat and party with the locals – from Tuk Tuk drivers in Bangkok to monks in Kyoto.
Throughout the series, the Hairy Bikers will taste their way through the incredible flavours and ingredients each place has to offer – finding authentic versions of the dishes we know and love back home, as well as discovering exciting new dishes we don’t – yet!

They’ll be demonstrating mouth-watering, local recipes in their own, inimitable style – dishes we’ll want to cook at home.

And they’ll bike through some of the most spectacular scenery and cityscapes that Asia has to offer, from the world-famous biking roads in the jungles of North Thailand, to Hong Kong’s jaw-dropping skyline.

The Hairy Bikers' Asian Adventure starts Thursday, 13th February at 20:00 on BBC Two.

The accompanying book The Hairy Bikers' Asian Adventure is now also available to buy.

Anyone who is a foodie must go to Thailand. It's a must. Really enjoying the delights of Asia, if only it was a longer series.

  • Guys all that way and no visit to Penang! OMG you need Hokken mee and nasi kandar ....ok ok you will put on a few Lb.
    loving the series pity it makes me want to get back to Malaysia every week.

  • So when's this series being released on blu-ray? Honestly, to series was visually beautiful, fascinating and fun, best thing I've seen in ages. I missed most of the first episode though and was disappointed not to find a repeat showing, as the Beeb seems to repeat everything else umpteen times. Maybe for the near future?

    I've been obsessed with Japan and even wider Asia for some time, and this series was medicine for the soul. Great work by all involved. どうも有難うございました!

  • Recently saw the series and was quite taken with the red and white Hondas ridden in Japan. I'd love to know what model they were. Congratulations on a great series. When are you coming to Australia? If you need a guide let me know!!!

  • Love your work allnthe best lads keep up the great work
