New Orleans

Located in the south-east of the sprawling state of Louisiana, New Orleans is one of the true gems of the country. 

A city filled with history, Bourbon Street should be the first port of call for travellers, a famous strip that runs through the city’s French Quarter. Along this stretch, visitors can take in the amazing architecture, and enjoy some of the best food and drink in the south.

It’s been more than a decade since Hurricane Katrina brought the city to a halt, but it’s thriving once more – especially its cuisine. With its French-Creole influence, and rich southern tradition, travellers can feast on the most authentic dishes, such as gumbo, jambalaya and beignets (a sort of powdered doughnut).

New Orleans is also a city with a sugar fixation. Visitors simply must try king cake, a multi-coloured specialty of the town. Though New Orleans is dotted with bakeries, two particular establishments – Haydel’s and Gambino’s - have emerged over the years as the premiere bakers, with fierce rivalries. So, remember to pack your sweet tooth!
