Food and dining customs are often a major part of a culture, and experiencing different food and drinks is a big part of exploring a new global destination. In this section, not only will you learn more about local dishes from many places on the planet, but you can also get recommendations of establishments where you can tuck into local meals. And, if you just can’t get enough, cooking classes teach you how to replicate your favourite dishes back at home!

Almost every country has at least a few signature dishes that are particular to that nation, and you will usually find a wide assortment of regional cuisine to enjoy as well. Some dishes have strong historical links and most make use of ingredients that were traditionally available in an area.

Soak up the sights, sounds, and smells at the Parisian farmers’ markets, sample the many delights from Penang’s plethora of hawker stalls, see what not to miss at Taipei’s night markets, indulge in locally produced and super cheap beer in Hanoi, treat yourself in Xi’an’s Muslim Quarter, and have fun eating your way around the world!
