Travellers' favourite fine dining restaurants in Asia and the world

Gourmands, surely you would travel for good food? Then you would relish in these picks by fellow jetsetting foodies for fine dining places in Asia and the world.

These restaurants from Asia and around the world were announced by TripAdvisor on Thursday as winners of its 2013 Travellers' Choice Restaurants awards.

In its second year, the annual awards honour travellers' favourite fine dining establishments worldwide, based on millions of travellers' reviews and opinions on its website.

A total of 171 restaurants from 13 countries and seven regions around the globe won awards, and these included lists for Asia, Europe, South America, South Pacific, the Caribbean, the US and the world.

According to Barbara Messing, chief marketing officer for TripAdvisor, "This year, [the community] has highlighted some amazing eateries in popular destinations, but also uncovered some hidden gems that are off the beaten path."
