Travel appeals to our senses—hearing the crash of ocean waves, seeing the twinkling lights of a city skyline, feeling a cool mountain breeze on your face. Judging from the popularity of food-related hashtags and social media posts, many travelers especially love to indulge their sense of taste. Travel food and dining experiences are often the most memorable parts of a trip.
Are you planning a trip for your favorite food buddies? Want to add some extra flavor to your next getaway? Here are a few ideas sure to tempt anyone’s travel taste buds.
The world offers an endless variety of ingredients and cooking styles. Specialized foodie tours make it easy to explore vibrant destinations like Thailand, Morocco, Peru, and more. Options include guided visits through local markets and street fairs, unique dining experiences, and hands-on cooking lessons.
WINE AND DINE
Sail through some of the world’s top wine regions on a luxurious European river cruise. Wine-focused itineraries feature expert lectures, tastings, and culinary pairings. Or plan a custom self-drive tour along New Zealand’s wine trail or through California’s Napa Valley.
HOP(S) ON BOARD
River cruises are also a great way to explore beer-producing regions in countries like Germany and Amsterdam. You can include tours of local breweries, visits to malt factories and hops fields, and of course, plenty of tastings. And what beer lover wouldn’t enjoy a pub crawl through Dublin or London?
SPICE IT UP
If an entirely food-themed trip isn’t your style, you can still add a pinch of culinary adventure to your next vacation. Try a food-themed shore excursion to experience local specialties in cruise ports across the globe. Take a break from the beaches of Jamaica, Costa Rica, or the Dominican Republic to tour a local coffee plantation or distillery. The possibilities are endless… and delicious.
