  • I love this place. It has performances and festivals all centered in Asian cultures. The facility is immaculate. The architecture is super modern and futuristic. I may be a little old fashioned. I felt very content and I want to visit Asia Society more often. Yes, I got my membership and I'll be back.
  • We had a wonderful tour of the building architecture and the bamboo exhibit today. The docent was highly knowledgeable and the exhibits were amazing.
  • The yoga class on Tuesday led by Roshmi is held is a wonderfully tranquil space. I would recommend a visit to anyone
  • Such a great place. Very educational too.
  • Intimate, quiet, meditative space currently hosting a remarkable bamboo craft exhibition. A 2014 local AIA architectural award winner.

Where to stay in Houston

If you come to Houston to splurge while on holiday, book a luxurious room at a downtown hotel. This area is an ideal base for getting to know Houston, offering you a chance to stay within walking distance of one of the country's largest theater districts. Houston bills itself as the "Energy Capital of the World," so it's no surprise that it houses many "green" hotels, their garages designed to cater to electric vehicle owners. For something completely different, enjoy a Texas country experience at a working ranch outside the city limits.
