In a recent survey by global travel experts Ink, over 100 travel professionals – ranging from hoteliers and photographers to TV presenters – were asked about where they were dreaming of travelling next. Out of all their answers, one of the most common trends that arose was a desire to travel for food.
Whether that was to sample a Jambon sandwich on the boulevards of Paris, enjoy some dim sum in Hong Kong’s Lan Kwai Fong, slurp on some coconut ice cream in Sanur, Bali or to dine on proper pesto and drink lots of icy cold Vermentino by the sea in Genoa, it was clear that for many, food was travel and travel was food.
That’s perhaps not surprising. A 2020 report by the World Food Travel Association stated that 80% of travellers research food and drink before visiting a destination, and over 70% of people choose a destination based on its food and drink.
