AS WE LEAVE 2012 BEHIND, AN EXCITING OPENING CLOSES THE YEAR.

Banyan Tree is making its mark in two gateway cities in China – Shanghai and Tianjin – and both are on prime riverside sites. The Banyan Tree Shanghai On The Bund not only overlooks both new Pudong and old Shanghai waterfront, but the lobby opens directly onto the bund promenade, uninterrupted by any road. Its 130 rooms and suites (some with Banyan Tree’s signature urban resort relaxation pools) are – at 60m for the smallest room – amongst the largest in Shanghai. Every room overlooks the Huangpu River – a first for any Shanghai hotel – and its alfresco rooftop bar rivals the views from Banyan Tree Bangkok’s world-famous Vertigo rooftop bar.

The 160-key Banyan Tree Tianjin Riverside faces the Hai River as it winds its way through downtown Tianjin, and overlooks a historic “old-street” entertainment area, and this will open in early 2013.

In the same breath, Vietnam’s largest resort project – Laguna L ng Cô – has welcomed guests before the end of 2012. Featuring in its first phase a championship Nick Faldo golf course, a Banyan Tree resort with 49 pool villas and a 229-key Angsana which also has pool suites and unique Sky Pool Villas, Laguna L ng Cô will eventually be even larger than its namesake, Laguna Phuket – Asia’s first and currently largest integrated resort. Laguna L ng Cô boasts another first – it is the only beach resort with three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the imperial capital of Hue, the riverfront town of Hoi An, and the Cham Kingdom Sanctuaries at My Son – each less than two hours’ drive away. In 2013 we will also see the opening of the Banyan Tree Kerala – 54 pool villas on its own island in the famous backwaters near historic Cochin – as well as Banyan Tree Chongqing BeiBei, in a hotsprings area of this bustling metropolis. The list continues as we go further into 2013...

After a slower growth in the past 18 years when we opened an average of 2 hotels a year to reach today’s basket of some 35 hotels, the next 5 years will see a doubling of growth to around 4 -5 openings a year, with many of them in China. By the time Banyan Tree becomes an adult at age 21, we should have over 50 operating hotels strung like jewels around the world.

SHANGHAI JAUNT

Just a few decades ago, Shanghai was a Mao-suited sea of grey, with most of the city’s population meandering its streets on bicycles, living on a daily dose of routine and uniformity. What a difference it is now, as the Pearl of the Orient rediscovers its true colours and bursts forth with buzz and energy. The vibe here is vibrant, urgent and confident. People are successful, driven, aflush with cash and ready to spend it. The newer and glitzier, the better. Yet there’s history here, too – not just within the walls of its historical structures but also the traditional practices that thrive amid modernity – which makes Shanghai a fascinating destination for a getaway.

The first stop? The Bund, of course, with its grand European buildings overlooking the Huangpu River and the modern skyline of Pudong on the opposite shore. Synonymous with Shanghai and its early jazz halls, The Bund is the city’s most desirable piece of real estate, and many of the large international brands and expensive restaurants make their enviable home there. You might think it was a thoroughfare of an old European city, if not for the China flags which fly above every building there – no doubt a deliberate statement countering the colonial past that took place in China’s not-too-distant history. Dramatically breathtaking, this grand boulevard deserves two visits – one in the daytime when you can see every architectural detail of the buildings, and another in the evening when they are all enticingly lit – quite a contrast to the bright neon lights flashing from Pudong across the river. The night lights turn off promptly at 10.30pm, which marks the time to duck into one of the bars nearby for a nightcap.

If not, take a taxi ride to Xintiandi, formerly the colonial French Quarter for a stylish supper. An area of winding streets flanked by historic, European-style buildings, it is now transformed into a hip and happening enclave of stylish restaurants and up-to-theminute drinking holes where expatriates and the fashionable young go to see and be seen. You’ll find modern Chinese and up-market chain restaurants standing alongside stylish bars, French and Spanish restaurants, slick tea boutiques and quaint stores selling Mao paraphernalia with a tongue-in-cheek spin.

If you’re there in the day time, don’t miss the delightful Shanghai Shikumen Open House Museum, with its discreet entrance. Worth a visit, especially with kids, this modest museum authentically recreates a shikumen, or typical private house in Shanghai, showing how people used to live in the 1920s. Decked out in period furniture, the recreation is detailed and evocative, down to the retro pictures on the wall, the faithful inclusion of old hand held mirrors and combs, the kitchen with all its utensils, even the tiny rooms tucked into stair landings which many of China’s bohemian, early 20 century writers like Lu Xun, penned their greatest novels as struggling artists. Not far away is Fuxing Park, a lush and sprawling 10-ha space in the middle of the city along Nanchang Lu, still within the former French Concession. This French-style park was notorious for displaying the sign ‘No Dogs and Chinamen allowed’ when it was opened to the French public in 1909.

These days, the park is a mustsee and it’s best on a Saturday morning, coming alive with the city’s residents out for some group recreation. It’s almost a party atmosphere as you weave through the infectiously cheerful crowd. Various groups carve out areas in the park to engage in their pastimes. Dressy ballroom dancers waltz away under the trees, sharing the music with maracas enthusiasts who shake to the rhythm set by their 80-plus year-old leader; men try to outdo each other in an open field where they spin large, heavy tops, and further along amid flower beds, calligraphers, armed with over-sized brushes dipped in water, paint proverbs and poetry on the pavement only to see it evaporate a few minutes later, leaving their concrete canvass ready for another transient masterpiece. There are choirs, wrestling groups, kids on inline skates taking lessons, old men playing chess, even a retired doctor offering free check-ups, attracting a long and patient queue. Capturing the spirit of the Shanghainese and their love for outdoor activities, this scene plays out in parks all over Shanghai every weekend.

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +

SHANGHAI JAUNT

No visit to Shanghai is complete without a stop at Yuyuan Gardens, formerly a residential private garden and now, one of the city’s most well known. To get there, you first have to weave through winding, noisy Yuyuan Bazaar, a network of shops clearly aimed at the tourists, selling tea to herbs and crafts. At the Gardens, walk the famous ‘zig-zag’ bridge, with its series of 90-degree turns designed to ward off evil spirits and see the hundreds of orange koi swim in circles in the pond below. Once inside, it feels like you’ve stepped into a Chinese painting with its rockeries, reflective ponds, pagodas and willows. It’s a peek into the leisurely and gracious life of the rich in times past. Tranquil corners of greenery spring up next to pretty pavilions and poetic passageways offering plenty of photo opportunities. Look up, and even the eaves and corners of the roofs are heavily carved with decorations, statuettes of animals, auspicious symbols and famous historical figures.

LOCAL HAUNTS If you’re after something that’s off the tourist route, pop into the Confucius Temple Book Market (Gushu Shichang) on Sunday mornings. Aptly held in the grounds of a temple dedicated to China’s greatest scholar, this lively little bazaar is a buzzing market of second hand and vintage books! Poke around and you are likely to come up with some great finds – retro Chinese comics the size of your palm retelling ancient Chinese tales, picture books on traditional Chinese crafts, thread-bound classics, and works of early 20th century greats like Ba Jin, Lu Xun and Bing Xin. The crowds here are a book-loving lot, so enjoy the good natured chatter and bonhomie as enthusiastic buyers and sellers recommend books, admire your finds, discuss different editions of various books, and even point you to the stall where you’ll find what you are looking for. While we’re on all things bookish, a two-minute shuffle up the road brings you to what the locals call the ‘Stationery Market’, a road of clustered with stationery shops selling pretty notebooks, novelty pens, pencil cases, school bags, etc. This is where you can stock up for the kids, or amass an arsenal of potential presents for kids, for a song.

While Xintiandi is a tourist magnet, Tianzifang is where the young local crowd prefer to gravitate. An edgy, funky neighbourhood crammed with tapas bars, cocktail joints, Italian eateries, designforward shops and art galleries, this meandering warren of supremely narrow alleyways was once factories in the 1950s. Now the Soho of Shanghai, it attracts a stylish crowd on the ground level. But look up and you’ll see laundry, shabby electrical wires hanging from the tenements just one storey above. Definitely worth a linger for the local colour while you nurse an espresso. Other areas for local colour include the Qipu Road Clothing Market, where cramped wholesale shops and tailors will happily measure you up and tailor a suit, tuxe, qipao or designer lookalikes in a couple of days for a fraction of the price you pay elsewhere.

High in the mountains around Yunnan, and particularly in Shangrila, Banyan Tree Ringha can get quite cold! For such weather what better to warm one up than a cosy and delicious highlands hot pot for two! You will be served up with a wonderful selection of the freshest ingredients for the hot pot, such as spare ribs, Yunnan Ham, black chicken, pork loin, tenderloin, mushroom, grass carp, tofu and a whole lot of vegetables, as well as fruit such as Dragonfruit, Hami Melon and more!

Such a favourite with many in Asia is the famous hainanese chicken rice! This very tasty dish is loved for its tender and juicy chicken, and is served up in Ming Yue in Banyan Tree Sanya! The locals refer to it as Wenchang Chicken. It is lightly marinated with spring onion, ginger and anises before being cooked whole in boiling water. Gentle simmering for 30 minutes ensures it is perfectly done. Keep the chicken stock, add in coconut flesh, wolfberry, yam and dates for further boiling until the rich flavours are obtained.

Away from the mountains of China and into the oceans around the stunning Maldives, we arrive at Banyan Tree Vabbinfaru, and specifically to Ilaafathi Restaurant, for a sampling of the freshest of fresh maldivian yellow ďŹ n tuna! The chefs here have paired this with a Chinese preparation which consists of warm, seared Maldivian yellow fin tuna loin marinated with lemon, garlic and Maldivian chili served on a fresh Chinese-style vegetable salad flavoured with soya sauce, rice vinegar and sesame oil!

Located an hour north of Da Nang international airport and 85 minutes south of the historic imperial city of Hue, this brandnew Nick Faldo designed Laguna L ng Cô Golf Club is the newest addition to the Laguna group of golf courses. As with its sister courses, the Golf Club is a part of the greater Laguna L ng Cô resort which will be the first fully integrated coastal resort in Central Vietnam.

“Our layout will incorporate sand dunes, rice-paddy fields, trees and scrub, wonderful exposed rock formations as well as a section of dramatic coastline and a routing that will visit each of these features on both nines. For this part of Vietnam it’s a real hidden gem. We have the opportunity to create a very strategic golf course that offers golfers an abundance of shot and route options. Players will need to plot their way through some very picturesque surroundings. The course will sport a ruggedlyhandsome look with a real sense of place.”

Combine all of this with a world class clubhouse with its full-service locker rooms, the Titleist/Footjoy concept pro shop, tennis courts, and the Laguna Café which serves up both local Vietnamese and international cuisine, Laguna L ng Cô Golf Club is sure to rate highly amongst the other courses in the region!

HAVE CHEF WILL TRAVEL

you have a huge fan-base around the world and are known for the world café series. how long have you done this with tlc, where have you gone, and what's the latest? I started in 2006/2007 with World Café Asia, then World Café Middle East, and I’ve just finished filming in Zanzibar, Sicily, Portugal and Peru. The series started in Asia, then took me to the Middle East and now, Africa, Europe and then Peru. I very much enjoy this as it puts me on a fast track to experiencing a culture, place, in five to eight days. But it is very intense and that’s the part I don’t really like. Sometimes even though I’m exhausted, I try to fi nd one to two days in that shoot to actually get away and see things I would not normally see with the film crew. To connect with the locals you have to take the extra time to go do that. Bobby Chinn relaxing at Banyan Tree Bintan

Have Chef Will Travel bobby chinn – global celebrity chef, restaurateur, indentured servant… takes a well-deserved break at the renovated and idyllic tropical island resort of banyan tree bintan. from his hectic, across-the-globe tv filming schedule, he gives under the banyan tree this exclusive interview. read on to find out what he’s been up to…

tell us about peru and what you did there? when is this going to air? Peru is a country so rich in history, food and culture. When you go you know that you are experiencing something very very special. From the Spanish architecture to the Incas that built the most incredibly advanced micro-systems in the side of the mountain in the middle of absolutely nowhere, and then seeing ingredients that you have never seen before, like herbs and fruit – hard to describe, a lot of them don’t have names, just very unique!

why do you call yourself the indentured servant?

I was also blown away by the Japanese food because you have this sea that is taking currents from the south up to the north and likewise a current coming from the north hitting south and those two actually hit Peru creating a third sea, and becomes this incredible wealth of seafood - very cold water so the seafood is very very good, like scallops and sea urchins off the charts! They also have this prehistoric toothless fish that grows up to three metres, weighs 50kg and eats piranhas! (UBT thinks this might be the Paiche, or Arapaima Gigas, check it out!) I think that World Café has educated a lot people about places - like I’m talking about Peru and it’s so far away from Asia, in Latin America – seeing it all is an education and crossing, transcending borders to a TV show is something people recognise and find of interest. If food is going to be this new rock star or something that is of common denomination then so be it. I would assume it airs next year. aside from all that you’ve seen, what other cuisines of the world would be interesting for you to explore and why? More of Latin America, and Africa. I like Chile, Argentina, I love football…samba, music, tango, it’s romantic.

LIKEWISE A CURRENT COMING FROM THE NORTH HITTING SOUTH AND THOSE TWO ACTUALLY HIT PERU CREATING A THIRD SEA, AND BECOMES THIS INCREDIBLE WEALTH OF SEAFOOD - VERY COLD WATER

SO THE SEAFOOD IS VERY VERY GOOD, LIKE SCALLOPS AND SEA URCHINS OFF THE CHARTS!

It’s the Chinese in me! No seriously, it’s because I never did anything for money…literally, whenever I did anything for money, it became a real pain. I have to do it, and love it. I have to feel that I need to do it almost. There is not a day off every day is Monday and I am totally reachable if you need me. I’m indentured…a servant, I do what people wish me to do and I only sign up for it if I want to do it. I really should have taken a year off and do what I want to do to improve oneself, to be a better person. what would you do with a year off? I would probably be reading, and writing more. Take some classes. I’d probably play in a band, cook and read more…there is so much information out there, someone needs to develop an app that can find what you are looking for in a cookbook!

to be a world chef, one has to be pretty adventurous with food. is there anything you would not eat, or would you try anything once. what is the most bizarre thing you have eaten? Well the knowing part is the hardest part. I just ate a ’rodent’– if you ever saw it, it looks like a rat and there is a psychological wall. But when a person makes food with pride and gives it to you, shares it with you, and you say ‘I’m sorry that is too foul for me’ then I’m not being open to a culture. So I feel it’s my job and responsibility to be open. In Peru I ate a worm, big and thick, cooked and the chef said ‘it’s absolutely fantastic, you are going to love it’ and ‘it tastes like foie gras’ I ate it, it was fat, interesting… I would eat anything once, I feel it is part of the whole progress of life, it’s all about experiences. Like in the west people ask me ‘you eat chicken feet?’ and I’m like dude, I eat more than chicken feet. I love chicken feet. Once in London I ate…unknowingly… goat’s bladder…made for us by the servants of some African princes, and it tasted good! Amongst our cultures we’ve created biases towards food… I have to be open.

HAVE CHEF WILL TRAVEL

your book wild wild east, is about vietnamese food, its people, places. tell us about it and are there plans for another?

how’s the new restaurant bobby chinn doing in hcmc, did you have challenges launching it, you even had a reality tv show for that process?

you’ve been in vietnam for many years now, do you still find the land, the people, the culture, cuisine interesting? what keeps you going?

The book started with a friend who hangs out with us - and I tell a story, stories of what happened and she’s laughing! She found it funny because it was happening to me! They say that tragedy, plus time, equals comedy. And I would go to my restaurant on a daily basis with different stories of what had happened…you tell a story, you build upon it and you get laughter, which is fun. It made me a much better judge, chef, it’s about my experience about going to Vietnam, trying to start my business.

A restaurant is more than a place where people eat. It’s a community that supports families, designers, artists. I provide a special ambience, which isn’t just about a restaurant, it’s about creating a special event, and venue. I design the restaurants, I create the lights, I can have a stage, or a little kitchen, and make it a multipurpose space. And I wanted to create the sustainability and be socially responsible, do the right thing, as much as possible. Even for water, I try to use an environmentally friendly agent.

In one story, a woman rejected me for 8 years! 8 years eating in her restaurant once a week, sometimes twice - 8 years. And I’m like excuse me, why don’t you teach me? “Just come to my house”. Like, WHAT? I said, are you going to teach me now? And she said “you’ve been bothering me for eight years, my children don’t want to learn from me, so I’ll teach you”. And it’s our secret.

It has its challenges, contractors, delays and the like, but if you can do something professional, you will stand out, that is the opportunity.

The Vietnamese people are very sensitive people, very kind, very generous, very proud people. And when you understand that and you commit to them, they become very loyal. So my success is based on the Vietnamese loyalty and friendships I have established over the years. I will not be able to do anything without them…there is the livestock, street food, the sense that there is a very young dynamic economy that is growing up. That’s what’s kept me there. There is energy, the sense that you can do anything. I’ve lived there for 17 years, there is a group of people that you’ve grown up with and befriended.

I tell stories, interweave those into the actual recipes. My grandmother had this idea, that I give away a lot of family secrets. And I figured, isn’t that what food is about, isn’t that sharing? So that’s Wild Wild East, recipes, stories about food, mostly Vietnamese food. Western ideas, Middle Eastern ideas, or Moroccan, and turn it in to semi- Vietnamese dishes.

I’d like to do more of good food, global food, small plates, light, healthy, I want to feel like I can eat all of these different dishes without having any concerns or worry.

THE FISH CONGEE IN CENTRAL VIETNAM IS SECOND TO NONE.

where do you call home? You know, I don’t really any more, Vietnam has been my home for many years. I just came back from San Francisco but I don’t feel it’s home. I know where to go, I can drive, but I can also do that in London, Cairo, Saigon, Singapore…so I feel the world – is my home. what are some of vietnam’s best kept secrets when it comes to cooking, ingredients? Vietnam probably has the best chocolate I have ever eaten… Marou chocolate. It also produces tons of bird’s nest, it’s a major export item and it keeps growing! So everyone is growing it…all you need is a house, put in some holes, and have some speakers of screaming birds! Vietnam also has the best fish sauce…from a place called Phu Quoc. And the seafood is good.

you are collaborating with banyan tree for the opening of their very first integrated resort – banyan tree and angsana l ng cô, central vietnam. how is the food here different than from the north and south? are the hotel guests in for surprising treats? To many outsiders they would assume Vietnamese food is Vietnamese food. Or that Chinese food is all the same, and Indian and Thai and so on. Vietnamese food in Central Vietnam is very important historically because it was part of the imperial cities. It has its own style and they have intricate dishes that are only found here, and to make them is very labour-intensive, very difficult. The fi sh congee in Central Vietnam is second to none. Hue was the imperial city – history, geography all play a huge role. The north tends to be more subtle, more sophisticated. The south tends to be more bold and friendly to visitors, but most would not know the Central or highlands food and they are two very important cuisines to discover – you realise you cannot find it outside of Vietnam. For the Banyan Tree opening event I think it will be Vietnamese-inspired dishes that use local ingredients from the region. There will obviously be luxury items as well to reflect Banyan Tree…

to wrap up, tell us what you do for fun? I read, I play music…guitar, I’m not very good but it’s a good looking instrument and it makes me feel good just to pluck it! I can do this on my own, when I walk around, with an idea, and you just start strumming, playing…a little country, generally blues, rock and roll…there’s only three chords. I’ve a bunch of guys I’ve been playing with for years, they are professional musicians, and we jam, play some rhythms, change the arrangements, that is fun for me. I used to play at the jazz club every Friday night for years in Hanoi.

Bobby Chinn will guest-chef at the grand opening of Banyan Tree and Angsana L ng Cô, Central Vietnam in April 2013. Don’t miss this chance to meet with him and partake of his delectable creations with a very special Gala Dinner Menu!

Laying 26 metres deep on the ocean floor, this former dredger now enjoys a new lease of life as an artificial reef. With shimmering waters so clear that visibility can stretch up to 50 metres, the striking scenes of Rannamaari’s underwater world is a delight to observe by day and night. Festooned with 13 years of spectacular coral growth, the Rannamaari is home to colonies of lightweight Tubastrea, or sun coral. Schools of silvery jacks and streamlined fusilier fish swarm the exterior of the wreck. Navigate your way through to find amiable groupers and gentle batfishes hanging out around the hull. Watch batfishes change colours in camouflage at the cleaning station, where fish like the cleaner wrasse, give them the full treatment.

At the rear of the wreck, you may spot a slow-moving frogfish. The cozy interior of Rannamaari is host to its new aquatic crew. Inside the engine room bay, translucent glassfish and wide-eyed squirrelfish dart about as giant moray eels float by gracefully.

At the bottom of the wreck, nurse sharks sleep peacefully while lionfish float patiently in gentle currents, awaiting unsuspecting, tasty prey. Garden eels, blennies, gobies and colourful shrimp find shelter on the wreck floor. Play hide and seek with the uniquely coloured commensal shrimp living in black spiral coral.
