Getting access to experience focused tour guides just got so much simpler
A tenfold of sublime eating experiences, all wrapped up in an exciting AirBnB package
For those who missed it, the B in AirBnB stands for Breakfast. Or Buffet. Or a Brilliant Feast Nowhere to be Seen Anywhere In the World But Here. Because when it comes to finding an accommodation, it’s not just the place to sleep in, it’s also the cuisine. For the jet-setting travellers looking to hop into another destination, perhaps a peek at these AirBnB featured spots may stir a craving:
Don’t panic, it’s organic
The founder of Mediterráneo Havana indulges with a sumptuous, sustainable treat that picks fresh produce from the nearby Vista Hermosa, straight to the table. Imagine getting spoilt from all the artisan sausages and cheeses, a tour in the farm by a horse ride, then back to the restaurant with a glorious menu paired with local beverages. Who doesn’t like a peek at a new culture in Cuba and the inner workings of a posh restaurant?www.airbnb.com/experiences/117928
Bangkok swarms with dozens of streetfood stalls, and the local team at Courageous Kitchen are eager to tour food lovers around with fast-paced bites and street tours. www.airbnb.com/experiences/108952
Everyone knows how majestic the Eternal City is, but a peek at the Catacombs will give wanderers a fresh, and perhaps even creepy perspective. When done, proceed to festive nibbling of Roman treats before heading to Giancolo Hill for pizza, suppli, and of course, the not-to-be-missed gelato. www.airbnb.com/experiences/121516
Hungry for Hong Kong
Old HK becomes the backdrop to this fresh new discovery of local flavours led by no less than a chef. Sit like a local and immerse in the mellowness of fried tofu, fishball, soy sauce noodles, all while engulfed in the high-rise buildings of the downtown area. www.airbnb.com/experiences/305995
A taste of true tapas
The 3-hour Madrid tapas crawl takes wanderers in a filling session of Spanish cuisine, jumping over 5 different spots including a cold beer bar and a market cuisine restaurant. A peek at a bodega and a sit-down at a slow-food tavern complete the tasting immersion. With over 12 tapas servings, one is advised to take a light lunch for a ready stomach. www.airbnb.com/experiences/120070
A Cape Town rendezvous
Spanning 7 hours, this Cape Town treat is a close glimpse at South Africa’s diverse gastronomy and vibrant luxury. Stop by the winelands, go market hopping, visit fisherman towns and explore the quaint neighbourhoods surrounded by the verdant landscape. www.airbnb.com/experiences/149346
Reykjavik by foot
Icelandic cuisine is raw and fiery. Surrounded by boats and the stark wintry sky, trail down the main street after trying fresh fish on a spear, and douse off the flavours with a warming lamb soup. The biggest challenge is a nibble on a fermented shark—a legendary delicacy that bore several myths. Then, finish off with a fruity dessert to cleanse the palate. www.airbnb.com/experiences/222900
Japan’s beloved savoury soup dish reigns supreme in an exciting tour that triggers the umami in every palette. Instead of the busy Shibuya, head to Ueno to uncover inexpensive but delectably delicious treats from local restaurants. Drink a glass of Japanese sake, have a nice bowl of ramen, and enjoy quick bites of sushi along with lesser-known Japanese delicacies. www.airbnb.com/experiences/183804
Bagels and biking
This powerhouse experience marries the victories of a five-hour biking and food-tasting spree. Delectable macarons, glorious cheeses, delicious deli–all while navigating the streets on a breezy bike. Swing by the less-crowded places in Paris and eat like the locals with friendly guides. www.airbnb.com/experiences/148925
Sunset at Santorini
Royally indulgent (and organic) meals become the star of the tables in an intimate setting at Thira, where guides lead their group along the coast of Santorini to enjoy a lovely glass of wine, the dazzling seaside view, and stories. Dig into local seafood dishes, seasonal treats and of course, deserts, while the sun majestically dips down the horizon. www.airbnb.com/experiences/794003 ◼
