Booking.com, a global leader in connecting travellers with the widest choice of incredible places to stay, has released the findings which also says that If there’s one thing most people agree on when traveling, it’s that food is a major consideration when picking a destination.

The ‘Taste of Travel’ research was commissioned by Booking.com and independently conducted among a sample of adults of 56,727 respondents across 30 different markets.

“Food plays a huge role in our travel choices and tasting the local and street food is a great way for travellers to really get immersed in the local culture and community. Using Booking.com’s real traveller reviews can help you identify the best foodie places across the globe so you can taste your way around the world!”
