(NC) Canada's rich ethnic diversity brings so many unique benefits to those of us living here. Our fashion, food, sport and lifestyle industries are influenced and shaped by many exotic and distinct cultures. As foodies, we are introduced to, and have access to, an endless number of possibilities. The passion we develop for these cuisines often leads us to explore the cultures in which they originate.
Here are some of the top destinations for Canadian foodies in 2016:
Vietnam: The street vendors in Ho Chi Minh City offer some of the most amazing food experiences in the world. The busy, crammed streets filled with all kinds of local cuisine such as pho, provide an experience for all five senses as well as a true understanding of why Vietnamese food is increasing in popularity at home.
Italy: A must visit for any foodie; once you experience authentic Italian cuisine you will quickly understand why it is so popular globally. It is unfair to speak specifically to Italian food as each region of the country offers a unique culinary experience. This is a must visit for any wine connoisseur as well.
Brazil: With the summer games approaching later in 2016, Brazilian cuisine will receive a lot of attention this year. This unique South American cuisine takes classics like rice and beans to an entirely new level. Moqueca Capixaba is an experience not to be missed by any fish lover.
Minimizing travel costs is important for us all. Saving money on travel lets you focus your resources on what matters – the food. “Aeroplan members are now able to cover all their flight costs with Aeroplan Miles,” said Pierre-Jean Mayol at Aeroplan. “This includes the taxes, fees, charges and carrier surcharges associated with your flight reward.” For the foodie on the go, members are able to book their flights on the fly with the Aeroplan app.
