Food and drink

Introduction

Most tourists need to be able to find places where they can buy meals and drinks during their stay in a tourism destination. For some tourists, food and drink is an important part of the holiday. Even tourists who are self-catering will visit some restaurants or other places to eat during their stay. Some destinations are well-known for the food served in the restaurants, and in some cases, this is the major appeal of the destination. In many destinations, local specialities of food and drink will appeal to tourists. Recently, destinations have been encouraged to provide a range of options to give visitors a wide choice of places to eat. Also, more and more locally-produced foods are now available.  Food and drink in tourism destinations could be provided by local business or world-wide chains such as McDonald’s and KFC.
