Delicious food brings everyone to the table. As residents of one of the most diverse countries in the world, we know this to be true. That is probably why, even when we travel, food is what drives us all. A new Airbnb Air Pacific survey found that 71 percent found it important to try out local cuisines when they travel, and 60 percent are keen to try new activities and experience. This desire to dive into a new place’s cuisine and culture was present for everyone, though Indian women were more adventurous than others. To celebrate the binding nature of food, we put a spotlight on just a few cities around the world famous for their food. If you’re planning a trip soon, these might be good places to head to.
