Tips / Destination

The Scottish capital is a great city for eating, and there are lots of affordable places, too. Here are some of the best.

Pork lovers will fall in love with Oink, where you will find a whole roast pig in the window. The meat is used for a series of buns that cost as little as $4, so you really can’t go wrong. If you don’t want the bread, get the Hog in a Box for $7.

Another good spot for comfort food is Meltmongers, which makes delicious cheese toasties with loads of different fillings. Get a sandwich for $9 or add some fries for a couple of dollars more.

Kampung Ali is a big favorite with locals for its $7 lunchtime special, with Malaysian classics dominating the menu. You can add a starter for $3, too, if you’re extra hungry.

One for the veggies, Union of Genius is a great soup restaurant on Forrest Road. They also have a van serving around the city. Choose from a huge array of $5–8 soups for a great winter warmer.

For amazing value curry, check out the Mosque Kitchen. This place used to serve worshippers in the mosque,e but opened its doors to the public in 2001. You can get a hot meal here for as little as $5.

Under $100: Poble Nou, Barcelona

Just north of Barcelona’s bustling city center, the capital of Catalonia transitions from Gothic cathedrals, tiny alleyways and hordes of bike tours into a more livable neighborhood known as Poble Nou. Close to the coast, Metro-accessible and rife with local hang-out spots, this area has become a favorite of residents who seek solace from the masses of tourists that crowd the center.

Take Me to Tahiti

Mana is the life force Tahitians believe connects all things. Feel the mana for yourself on a visit to the islands of Tahiti, and sample some of these activities as you connect with the breathtaking nature of the South Pacific. Fly Air France from the United States to Tahiti in the most convenient and comfortable way and let your holiday start on board.

Golden Circle Tour of Iceland

The small island nation of Iceland may have only one major “highway,” the 828-mile Route 1, better known as Ring Road because it navigates the entire perimeter of the country, but it can be difficult to traverse depending on weather conditions at particular times of the year. While a road trip around the island is a fantastic adventure that reveals unimaginably unique landscapes, it can be a considerable challenge for those self-identifying as anywhere from timid to even moderately adventurous in their travels. In these cases, a full-day Golden Circle tour is the perfect antidote to any FOMO experienced by foregoing the road trip.
