Brits love fast food abroad

By | Category: Travel news, Travel rumblings

Considering how obsessed Brits are supposed to be with food, we are downright unadventurous when it comes to eating out abroad.

Research by Dubai Tourism has revealed that a staggering 25 percent of us pack our favourite food and drink (think tea bags, tomato ketchup and marmite) in our suitcases along with the suncream and shorts, in case we don’t get on with the local cuisine!

And 65 percent of Brits bypass the local food completely and make for Macdonalds, Burger King, KFC and other fast food outlets.

Japanese and Middle Eastern food were found to be the foods that most intimidated holiday makers while Welsh holiday makers were revealed to be the most unadventurous gastronomes.

Here at CD-Traveller HQ, we’ve tried to get our head around the fact that so many Brits prefer to fill up on fast food when on holiday, but have failed to do so. We just don’t get it: for the CD-Traveller team, trying local culinary delicacies is often the favourite part of our holiday and a great way to get a glimpse into the local culture.
