A country's cuisine is at the forefront of its culture. Great food is often the essence of the adventure. Remember the aroma of lemongrass and coriander as you trekked through the Thai countryside? Or the satiating satisfaction of chopsticks thrust deep into the belly of a dumpling in Shanghai? Or even the bizarre crunch of the worm in the bottom of the mezcal in Oaxaca? 

On an Intrepid tour you'll spend much time talking about and eating food. Our trips have some meals included, so check your trip notes to find out which meals are provided and how much money to allow for meals not included.

And if you're embarking on an Overland journey, you'll also experience the fun of being a part of the cooking crew - pitching in to shop and cook group meals.
