Are you craving a vacation that will have you indulging in local cuisine? Well, then take a seat and explore some of our top culinary destinations worldwide where you can dine like royalty!


Italy is the land of pizza and pasta and a food lover’s paradise. Each region boasts its unique dishes and ingredients. For example, Emilia-Romagna is known as Italy’s food capital and is famous for its prosciutto, parmigiano, and balsamic vinegar. Meanwhile, Tuscany is celebrated for its olive oil and wine.


Japan is more than just sushi and ramen. It is known for its exquisite presentation and harmonious balance of flavours. Tokyo houses the highest number of Michelin-starred restaurants globally and is a must-visit. Remember to savour the kaiseki (a traditional multi-course meal), yakitori (grilled chicken skewers), and okonomiyaki (savoury pancake).


Greek cuisine has staples like Moussaka and Greek salad, representing the healthy Mediterranean diet. Unsurprisingly, nearly everyone loves Greek food, known for seafood, olives, feta cheese, and Greek yogurt. Greece offers a wholesome dining experience that satisfies both the soul and palate.


Thai cuisine balances sweet, sour, salty, and spicy flavours. Street food is an essential part of Thai culture, with Bangkok being a culinary hub. Be sure to try the green curry – a vibrant dish with the perfect blend of coconut milk, fresh green chillies, and a medley of aromatic herbs and spices – and mango sticky rice. Yum!


Portugal’s cuisine reflects its rich maritime history and is a seafood extravaganza, especially Bacalhau (salted cod). The country is famous for its Pastéis de Nata, a creamy egg tart. From the freshly caught seafood in Lisbon to the flavours of Porto wine, Portugal offers an authentic and diverse culinary journey.


Hungary’s diverse food scene includes iconic dishes like hearty goulash, chicken paprikash, and plenty of international influences. Food markets, such as Budapest’s Great Market Hall, provide a feast for the senses, with fresh produce, spices, and local specialties.
