In the summer of 2001, a group of friends set out to travel Southeast Asia. All of them had toured the region previously, but none had traveled slowly, savoring the sights and sounds of cities and countryside from Singapore to Siem Reap. this was their long-awaited opportunity.
A Gentleman's Journey captures the experiences and observations of Chuck Williams, founder of America's cookware retailer Williams-Sonoma; writer William Warren; and photographer Michael Freeman. Together they journeyed by road, rail, and air over the roughly fifteen hundred miles (2,400 kilometers) from the southernmost tip of the Malay Peninsula to the famed ruins of Angkor. They toured temples and skyscrapers, ate local foods in simple surroundings and elegant fare in fine restaurants, and watched from the windows of the Eastern & Oriental Express as the train rolled through the region's verdant landscape.
Here, through a rich and colorful mix of words and photographs, you can join Chuck Williams and his friends on that memorable journey.
