Food lovers find good holiday hotspots
26 January 2009 09:37
Holidaymakers who rate the quality of food available highly on their check list of what makes a good holiday destination are choosing Italy, France and Spain in Europe and Thailand, India and China further afield, according to The Association of British Travel Agents (ABTA).
Spokeswoman for ABTA Frances Tuke has said that these are the particular destinations that food lovers seem keen on visiting at the moment.
She added that the running of food festivals have also aided a traveller's judgement.
London has recently hosted the Taste of Spain festival that proved a big hit and did a good job at showing the potential gourmet offerings available in the country.
Ms Tuke went on to state that tourists unsure of what restaurants are on offer may find it beneficial to pick up a guide book, which give recommendations based on other tourists that have already enjoyed a meal at the restaurant.
Holidaymakers visiting these locations would be advised to take out travel insurance in case they become ill when they are away, whether this be because of the food or another reason, like the sun.
Sun seekers have been warned to protect their bodies from the sun by Cancer Research UK as it has the capabilities of causing skin cancer or other potential skin damage.
