Championing less-explored places, Tydeman’s itineraries might include stays at Khao Sok National Park, in southern Thailand, and a riverboat cruise with a naturalist to learn about the country’s flora and fauna. This year he is excited about Kampot, a laid-back town on Cambodia’s southern coast.

Tydeman goes far beyond securing the best hotel perks: in Vietnam, he once organized a street-food tour of Hanoi's historic Old Quarter with a local gourmand, with stops to taste the best bánh cuon (rice rolls) in the city. In Indonesia, he's previously sent clients to the remote Bawah Reserve and the jungle-shrouded beaches and blissful resorts on the Cambodian coast. For the truly intrepid, he can set up overnight camping in one of the world's largest cave systems, in Vietnam.

"Hanoi is shaping into a very attractive destination for luxury travelers in 2023," he shares. "I’m particularly excited about the Capella Hanoi, which transports you back in time to the 1920s and doesn’t feel like a hotel. There’s no reception area, and each of the 47 rooms and suites are individually designed with operatic memorabilia that pays tribute to the Hanoi Opera’s legendary artists, composers, designers and performances. There’s also a rooftop bar with a 1920s Grand Central Station theme that’s brilliantly executed."
