If you want to try a dessert you’ve never had before, head here. Nosteagia specialises in Asian desserts such as bubble waffles and bubble tea, which come in every flavour under the sun. The bubble waffle originated in Hong Kong and is a puffy waffle reminiscent of bubble wrap, which comes encased in a cone stuffed with fruit, sauces, sweets and ice cream.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.

Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.

Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination.
