A Treat For The Taste-buds

Our Top Three Foodie Holidays

It’s Shrove Tuesday, which means – yep, you’ve guessed it – pancakes! And if you’re as excited as we are about the prospect of some sugar and lemon crepes for dinner, then we know that you’ll be positively ecstatic about our Foodie Experience Packs. 

We know that everyone has different priorities when it comes to what experiences that they want out of their holiday, which is exactly why we’ve divided ours up into easy to add-on ‘packs’. And for those of you that delight in a delicacy whenever you’re somewhere new, our Foodie Pack makes for the perfect addition. Think everything from a delectable dim sum tour of glitzy Hong Kong, to learning the low down about Sri Lanka’s spices with a curry cooking class in Kandy – anyone else’s mouth watering?

This is follow your stomach travel, at its very best.
