One of the principle joys of travelling is the opportunity to try new things, so why not add a mind-
blowing culinary experience to your bucket list.
A table with a view is taken to new heights at some restaurants... literally. Savour a 4-course meal with slow-motion skyline views in one of the dining pods of the Singapore Flyer, Asia’s largest Ferris wheel. Or in Chicago, where it’s not just your sense of smell that will be heightened; a table awaits you in a glass balcony extending out from the 103rd floor of Willis Tower.
At the other end of the scale, how about a table without a panoramic vista – or any view at all for that matter. At some restaurants in cities such as Paris, Barcelona and St. Petersburg you’re served by the blind and visually impaired as you dine in total darkness. The lack of vision is said to intensify the senses of taste and smell giving you an immersive gastronomic experience like no other.
The buzzing cities of Hong Kong, Tokyo and Ho Chi Minh City all offer an off-the-beaten-path foodie sensation that just can’t be missed. Taste your way through the colourful streets and savour exotic delicacies at locals’ favourite restaurants & pavement stalls on a food tour that’s guaranteed to be the highlight of your travels.
On a more refined scale, discover the importance of the UK’s favorite brew by partaking in ‘high tea’ in London – complete with polished silverware, dainty china teapots and delicate sweet pastries. Or grab a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn from the very best at a cordon bleu cooking school in the heart of Paris.
So next time you’re travelling, don’t miss the opportunity to indulge all your senses with an amazing culinary treat at some of the world’s most unique dining venues.
