Well we at @pkjulesworld love our food. Its one of life’s pleasures esp. when we travel. Checking out the local cuisine in comparison to what we usually have or grew up eating is fun!

When we first started traveling, we used to skimp on a lot of things and food sadly used to be one of those things…

Here is why…

See, we loved to see new shores but we were living on a Student Allowance and some temporary worker shifts here and there…This didn’t stop our wanderlust. We simply tightened our belts, did our research and found some Cheap Holiday Packages!

Suffice to say we weren’t getting the best deals nor staying at the best hotels…

Thank God all this has changed ever since we became part of a global Travel community. You can learn more about that and how you too can be part here!

  1. Food is a great deal when you want to get to know a culture/country, so going local is a must! Thank you for sharing your thought! (:

    1. hey Adewale,
      Glad ypou enjoyed our Video and we are glad to inspire your future trips. Eating local is an experience in itself. Super fun most times! 🙂

    1. Its not hard,
      Most people just like to stick on the tourist trail where we are overcharged for everything. Thats whay food gets premium on vacations Stephanie! 🙂

  2. We spend a silly amount on food when we go away we definitely need to be more disciplined, great tips x

    1. Hey Lynne,
      Its all in the detail. how you plan your time ot. MOst people avoidn all inclusive deals, yet often times they are the most value for money! 🙂

  3. It is good to hear the voice of experience and that from so many destinations. I always like to be able to make my own minor meals and go local for the main meal of the day.
    Thanks, Julie

  4. We always like to check out local restaurants. The food and atmosphere are much more fun. Sometimes too, we stay in hotels that have a small kitchen. Cooking meals ourselves really can save us a lot!

    1. Hello Ali,

      Indeed self catering can save one lots, but it takes away a wee bit from the vacation intent. To be pampered and get away from the norm 🙂 Dont you agree?

  5. Thanks for the helpful tips and advice. Can surely help us with our future travel plans. Amazing!

  6. I usually prefer to go all inclusive but I always make sure I try the traditional food for that country and eat out at a couple of local resturants 🙂

    1. We too go all inclusive for our children’s convenience. Yet we make sure to eat out esp. during the day when we are out and about checking our the local attractions or just making that plastic work aka shopping! 🙂

  7. Loads of great tips to save money eating on holiday. Definitely eating where the locals eat and staying away from the tourist traps.

    1. Aaahaaa Kate talk about the tourist traps…We truly believe that they are there simply because most people are too scared to venture beyond the “Safety net” of tourist areas. We dont feel that way. W ego and find more fun with the locals esp. cuisine 🙂

  8. Jules, how does a person with diet restrictions leverage your advice i.e. no diary, no soy, no gluten?

  9. I just know that when I travel the most expensive part is going to be the food – Because this girl likes to eat and likes to eat a lot. If I can get away with a dinner for MYSELF for $50 I am shocked! LOL!

    1. Talk about it GiGi,
      Althoug we usually find that the dearest part is usually the flight. Coz we take lots of long haul flights! Food comes a close second on expenditure! 🙂

    I believe food always makes us happy especially when we taste it. Me and my friends used to eat local foods because aside from its delicious tastes it is also affordable and it’s not that expensive especially when you are travelling. Fantastic blog, Julie. Thanks for sharing.

    1. Hey Mae,
      We are gald you enjoyed our article on How to eat cheap while traveling! Local cuisine seems to be a favorite to most, and we msut say we agree!


  11. My Teen Guide

    Great tips! It is always a great experience to dine in places where the local folk hang out. The food is most often, more delicious and less commercialized. Cheaper too!

  12. Street food is the best when you’re out traveling. That’s where the local favorites are. It’s not really nice to eat at a fancy restaurant because the menu would be familiar.

  13. What I love about traveling is that you get to taste food that you don’t usually have at home. It’s a great way to experience a country as well. I think the best way would be street food. It’s affordable and awesome!

  14. There are affordable ways to eat out, I agree. It’s always a treat to do so.

  15. I love to try local foods when traveling. It really helps with the budget 🙂

  16. Great tips, Julie! Whenever we travel, we often fill ourselves with street food, haha! They’re cheap, yummy, and a great way to immerse into the culture of the country we’re traveling to. 🙂

    1. Hello Czjai,
      We love street food, yet our children are less enamoured. See we grew up in Afrca and street food was normal to us…We guess different generations! 🙂 Culture ahhh we love immersing in local cultures and learning what makes a peopel tick!

  17. It can be so expensive to eat at times when you travel, but it is important not to skimp in this area. Being able to experience the local cuisine is a special part of traveling. Your tips are great ways to help everyone be able to eat cheaply while still experiencing great food.

  18. I’m sorry I don’t have a sound card in my laptop so I can’t watch the video. It would be handy to have the tips within the post so those of us who can’t watch.

    I’m sure you’ve got some great tips.
