Trips For People Who Love Food and Drink

Whether it’s a special birthday or just fancy treating them, stop just buying your foodie mates a hamper! Instead, arrange a trip with them that focuses on food and drink, and your consumption of both.

There are tonnes of tours and trips out there for people who love eating and drinking; here are just a few ideas to get you started. The locations range from the US to Morocco to Vietnam, so there is something for every budget.

Winery Trail, Missouri, USA
If somebody says wine trail in America, you probably think of California. After all, this is where some of the best locations are. However, it’s not the only option. There are fantastic wineries elsewhere in the country too! Mix things up a bit, and head to a place like Missouri instead. Missouri Wine Country accounts for an impressive 1/3rd of the state’s total production of wine. This means that you won’t just find one winery in the middle of nowhere, with nothing else around. Instead, the trail spans for a whopping 20 miles and incorporates seven different venues. So, you could travel wine country with this site, or make your own trip up. You’ll need to book accommodation along the way if you want to see everywhere, though. Factor this into the cost when booking your trip so you have enough cash to treat yourself once you arrive.

Street Food Tour, Hanoi, Vietnam
Those who visit Vietnam rave about the capital, Hanoi, for many reasons. At the top of that list, however, is the incredible street food on offer here. Therefore, it only makes sense that you take a professional street food tour here. Trips can last between three or four hours, and happen in the mornings, afternoons and even evenings. Your guide takes you, by foot, to a number of different vendors. The price you pay for the tour includes all of the food you eat along the way. And if the glowing reviews are anything to go by, that is a lot! Being in Vietnam, as well, the prices are low and you get a lot for your money. However, there is no compromise on quality. Try pork patties, noodle soup and Hanoi coffee, amongst many other things. Yum!

Spices Tour, Marrakech, Morocco
This tour can absolutely be one that you lead and design yourself. If you’re heading to Marrakech, spend an hour or so touring all the different spice stalls in the souks. You’ll find these at the huge market Jemaa El Fna. Be sure to go deep inside, though; you’ll find the most authentic stock and fairest prices here. You’ll also be more among the locals, and not the tourists! There is a spice market, which is jam-packed with towering mounds of every spice you can imagine. Stock up on coriander, ginger, cumin and of course, chilli powder! You might also want to try out the flavoured nuts and purchase some of those too! Accompany your journey with fresh orange juice, made right in front of you, and sweet pastries. That being said, it might take you longer than an hour with all of the other incredible shopping and sights you’ll see along the way. We recommend taking a large suitcase!
