Grasshoppers, crickets, assorted insects – down the hatch! Although it’s easy to dismiss Patong, as a tourist haven, you just can’t dismiss the exceptional street food in Thailand. To eat or not eat: that is the question. With the enjoyment of exotic culinary delights, however, comes environmental responsibility.

It is said that you can experience a culture through its food. This is no less true in Panama, where the local food, history and culture blend together. In fact, food in Panama is also directly connected to the history of the Canal. Any traveler that really wants to “go local” should start with a traditional Panamanian menu.

Visitors to Hoi An, Vietnam, almost always already know about its narrow streets flanked by traditional buildings full of colourful lanterns, fusion restaurants, and shoe or tailor shops.

What is poverty? To Mohammad Yunus, the Bangladeshi father of microfinance and Nobel Peace Prize laureate, poverty is the lack of control over capital.

Today, anyone can join the microfinance movement and offer capital to the poor through crowdfunding sites like the Geotourism Development Foundation or Kiva.

São Paulo, however, has so much more to offer than meets the eye, especially to people who attend the 70,000 events it hosts per year as one of the world’s biggest event destinations, and to the business travellers who account for 60 per cent of the city’s foreign visitors.

On my last visit to Panama, I learned firsthand that the benefits of travel off the beaten path are not exclusive to the rich and famous. During my time to Panama, a country that for now remains relatively “undiscovered,” I was particularly enamoured of my stay on a remote island where the natural environment has been preserved through the conscientious efforts of an eco-development company.
