Many travellers booking flights to New York and Singapore do so because of the quality of food that each city offers.
This is according to Lonely Planet’s November travel trends report, which revealed that the Big Apple and the island city state boast wide culinary choices, from cheap street food to more expensive fine dining.
"Both cities have such an international flair – whether you are craving Middle Eastern or Chinese, Italian or Mexican, you can find a top notch place to get it in either New York City or Singapore," the report explained.
Lonely Planet’s global community of authors also commended Rome and Paris, with the former famed as a city with no shortage of pizzas, pastas, wine and gelato. Paris is simply described as a "decadent food-lover’s dream".
People booking flights to Melbourne, San Francisco and Oakland are also spoilt for choice in terms of food, with all three cities touted as foodie destinations.
Lonely Planet said today (November 20th) that the Mexican region of Oaxaca is its top travel recommendation for 2010.
