New Goway Trips Lure Foodies to the World's Most Exotic Travel Destinations
From new Asia foodie getaways to Aussie wineries, these exotic travel destinations are looking delicious.
Asia has been a favourite of foodie travellers since Marco Polo. Not to be outdone, other exotic travel destinations such as Australia, New Zealand, and the islands of the Pacific and Indian Oceans offer their own culinary treats and traditions.
Knowing that good food can be a highlight of any trip, Goway Travel has harnessed the flavours of Asia’s most exciting foodie destinations. Bangkok for Foodies is all about fresh street food, including a half-day class at a Thai cooking school. Hong Kong for Foodies includes a walking tour that combines the history and culture of Asia’s World City with a leisurely culinary adventure through the best local eateries. Taipei for Foodies is all about unique flavours after dark, both cultural and edible, including those found at the famous Huaxi Street Night Market.
Each makes an ideal short escape on its own, or can be combined with other trips for a foodie’s ultimate Asia vacation. Alternatively, Globetrotters with a taste for fine dining might consider Japan. Kyoto, Osaka, and Tokyo each have more Michelin-starred restaurants than Paris. Still, one doesn’t have to spend a fortune to enjoy Michelin-starred dining. One hawker stand in the all-new Singapore guide lets travellers enjoy a Michelin starred meal there for under $3!
Globetrotters with a taste for both luxury and adventure may want to consider a Maldives vacation at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island Resort. Named the Indian Ocean’s Leading Culinary Resort in 2015, the Conrad boasts over 1,400 different labels of wine in their cellar, and a dedicated cheese bar. Conrad Maldives was also honoured at the World Luxury Restaurant Awards in 2016.
It’s no longer any secret that Australia and New Zealand produce some of the world’s best wines. Australia is the fifth largest exporter of wine in the world (Only French, Italian, Spanish, and Chilean wines are in higher demand), while New Zealand’s Sauvignon Blanc has secured a reputation as arguably the world’s finest. Australia’s most famous wine regions are the Hunter Valley, just a few hours from Sydney, and the Barossa Valley, a stone’s throw from Adelaide.
Not to be outdone, New Zealand boasts exceptional wine regions on both the North and South Islands. Perhaps the ultimate way to see them is on a wine trail self-drive. Goway’s New Zealand wine trail takes Globetrotters from the Art Deco stylings of Napier, through the vineyards of Martinborough, then across Cook Strait to Picton and Blenheim, gateway to the famous Marlborough wine region (and its Sauvignon Blancs). It also includes time in Wellington, the cultural heart of New Zealand.
