Top Tips from our Experts
“If you’re a lover of spicy South East Asian cuisine, spend a few days in bustling Bangkok, shuttling in a tuk-tuk between one market and another. Eat where the locals eat and you can’t go far wrong.”
“If you’re intending to visit Machu Picchu and you’re a foodie, be sure to visit Lima as well. A Pisco Sour is the perfect compliment to a mouth-watering dish of ceviche. Plus, Lima has three of the top 50 restaurants in the world.”
“The wine tram through Franschhoek, sipping rosé, shucking oysters and tasting cheeses, has to be one of the best moments travelling I have ever experienced through the beautiful Winelands countryside. It’s fascinating to discover that each vineyards has a unique character.”
