Experiencing cuisines from all over the world is something any foodie would dream of doing, so you can imagine how difficult it was to settle on only five foodie hot spots! That said, these locations all make the list with good reason. While Rome is our top pick, pretty much anywhere in Italy is worth a visit if you’re after authentic pizza, pasta or smooth and creamy gelato. Tokyo is famed for its light, fresh, expertly prepared food and boasts a whopping 304 Michelin-starred restaurants (more than any other city in the world, including Paris who only has 134), making it the recognised “food capital of the world” in the culinary industry. Of course, when it comes to authentic pastries Paris is the go-to, especially if you can secure a spot in front of the Eiffel Tower while enjoying a buttery, flakey croissant. Bangkok and Hanoi make the list for their adventurous use of flavours and the aromas that will carry you from street to street and market to market.
