Chris Robinson Travel News: Canadian Taste for Travel!

New research commissioned by Booking.com reveals that 69% of Canadians would travel somewhere known for its food and drink. And with the joy of trying local delicacies often becoming one of the highlights of any trip, it’s clear Canadians have developed a ‘taste for travel.’

As for which destinations are top of mind for those looking to sip, savour and sample their way through their next vacation, Booking.com found that the top Canadian cities include Vancouver, Montreal and Halifax. The results are based on more than 118 million real reviews from global travellers on Booking.com.

Globally, Asian and South American flavours were favourites in the top ten foodie destinations, with Greece, Australia and Spain not far behind. Hong Kong, with its famous dim sum, Sao Paulo with Brazilian barbeque and Tokyo, whose restaurants have accrued more Michelin stars than New York and Paris combined, top the list.
