Savour the flavours of Europe

Get your taste buds ready for a gastronomic adventure unlike any other. Flight Centre offers a wide range of European tours featuring destinations such as France, Amsterdam, Switzerland, Venice, Munich, Rome and more.  

Marvel at the Eiffel Tower while tucking into fresh baguettes, Escargots de Bourgogne and Gougère. Indulge in a Swiss cheese fondue, eat delicious frankfurters in Berlin, and devour home-made pasta on the cobbled streets of Rome.    

Bangkok cuisine

The bustling city of Bangkok offers surprises around every corner, and the local cuisine is no exception. Explore the busy floating markets where many of the locals pick up their fresh produce.

Of course, you haven’t truly experienced Bangkok cuisine until you’ve sampled the amazing street food. A good tip is to follow the locals and see which stalls they’re crowding around. It’s the best way to know which stalls serve the best food.

Try out the top Thai dishes such as Tom Yum Goong (spicy shrimp soup), Som Tum (spicy green papaya salad), Gaeng Daeng (red curry) and Pad Thai (Thai-style fried noodles).

Mouth-watering Miami

The sunny shores of Miami offer visitors long days on the beach, followed by a nightlife that’s second to none. You’ll find a blend of American southern cooking and Spanish influence with a range of seafood and moreish snacks, including sandwiches, pastries and crispy pork crackling.

Don’t miss the stone crab claws at Joe’s Stone Crab, the arepas at La Latina Miami, the Cuban sandwich at Versailles Restaurant and the fried chicken, watermelon and waffles at Yardbird Southern Table and Bar.

Indulgent Italy  

Best known for its delicious pizzas and fresh pastas, Italy is the home of hearty comfort food. For centuries these recipes have been passed down from generation to generation. What could be better than sipping a generous glass of Chianti, while delighting in delicious dishes and the company of good friends?  

With so many incredible pizzerias in Rome to choose from, you’ll be hard-pressed to decide which one is best. Why not challenge yourself to try them all? You probably won’t get to all of them but it will certainly be worth the effort! Make sure to add Tortellini en Brodo, Cacciucco and Bigoli to your must-try dishes too.
