Take these culinary trails around the world and make your own travel niche
For all the foodies, culinary tourism is the next big thing and we call it ‘tasty travel’
Experiencing a new city or country is always incomplete without indulging into its cuisine. It is often said that the true essence of a place lies in the food that place has to offer. How many times it has happened that you want to visit Turkey for its famous Baklava, Japan for Sashimi or Italy for its selection of cheese? Well! if you happen to be a foodie and a true explorer, culinary travel is a thing now. For any trip you take, food becomes an integral part of memory so why not travel just for food? We have brought five such culinary trails that you should add in your next travel check-list. Whether eat-in local homes, visit Michelin-starred restaurants, learn cooking with the local chefs, go on a truffle hunt or have a farm-to-table visit, go beyond the ordinary and make your own travel niche.
