Good Food Month’s signature event, the Night Noodle Markets, brings delicious cuisine from around the world in one buzzing spot and this year Cathay Pacific, the official airline partner of Australia’s largest food festival, will bring the world even closer with its ‘Taste Asia with Cathay’ competition. The 2014 Skytrax airline of the year is offering foodies the chance to win two return Economy Class flights to an Asian food capital from the airline’s vast network that includes 20 destinations in China alone^.

To go in the running, entrants will need to take a picture of their favourite Asian food or flavour, and share it with the hashtag #TasteAsiaWithCathay and of the destination they would like to visit (for example, #Shanghai) via Twitter, Instagram or Cathay Pacific’s Facebook at

“There are few better ways to spend a spring evening than at the Sydney Night Noodle markets – and while you are there come and visit us at the Cathay Pacific area. With so much good food on offer and a great festival atmosphere all round, don’t forget to take your favourite food photo and enter our #TasteAsiaWithCathay competition – then you and a friend might be flying to another foodies’ paradise soon,” says Julie Reid, Sales and Marketing Manager, Cathay Pacific Australia.
