Arsenal attacker Podolski excited by Far East tour
Podolski is looking forward to the trip and connecting with the Club's passionate supporters in the region.
"I'm very excited," he told Arsenal Player. "I went before when I was with Bayern Munich, and this will be my first time with Arsenal. I am very happy because the people there are crazy about Arsenal and football!
"When you arrive at the airport there are a lot of young fans there. They are so happy that you are there and I am very happy to go there.
"Here in London we don't have fans at training but over there we will have open sessions and play some matches, so the fans are close.
"They never [get to] see us up close so it is very important to go there, train and play matches in front of them - and also pose for pictures and sign some autographs.
"It is crucial [to go to see] the fans who support us a lot on Twitter, Facebook or other platforms."
