PLACES: TROPICAL RAINFOREST 20 MINUTES AWAY FROM KUALA LUMPUR

FOOD: FERMENTED BEAN PASTE SESAME CRACKERS
A 30-minute ferry ride from Central, the small island of Peng Chau is where you’ll find some of Hong Kong’s best traditional food. In Anoy’s Bakery, Anoy puts her heart and soul into preserving an old-time favourite. Unlike most pastries, the fermented bean paste sesame crackers are savoury not sweet.
