Foodie destinations that will make you hungry for more

Eating is one of life's greatest pleasures and, for many of us, a big part of our travels. Food is the soul of a destination and there's nothing more exciting than the bustle of local markets awash with the vivid colours of fresh produce or the intoxicating aromas emerging from restaurant kitchens.

Whether it's fishcakes and rum punch in Barbados, scones with clotted cream in London or sun-warmed tables groaning with fresh Tuscan produce, these are just some of our favourite foodie destinations we can't wait to tuck into again.


The land of tacos, tamales and tequila, Mexico's vibrant cuisine is as diverse as its landscape. Make the most of Los Cabos' emerging farm-to-table movement and pop by Los Tamarindos, where the slow-cooked pork shank in a green mole sauce is a must-try.

Nothing sums up Tuscany more than its lyrical landscapes and exquisite fresh produce.

It’s no wonder Italy is considered to be one of the world’s best foodie destinations in the world.

The fragrant, complex flavours of Balinese cuisine will make any food lover's tastebuds rejoice. Even the street food is well-worth sampling on a personal food tour, from satisfyingly sticky satay chicken to the fiery sambal matah sauce that accompanies many of the island’s popular dishes. For authentic soul food rich in Indonesian spices, there’s no better place than Merah Putih in the capital city of Denpasar.
