Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) November 06, 2014

John Giduck, as an avid travel enthusiast, knows that one of the best parts of a vacation is trying something new, and he encourages all travelers to spend time filling their vacation experiences with interesting activities and attractions. One of the most unique trips that can be experienced this fall is one of the fantastic fall train rides throughout the United States. These train rides mix a sense of relaxation with a perfect opportunity to see the fall foliage and colors. It is ideal for a relaxing vacation away from it all, so John Giduck recommends some of the best train rides to try this year.

1. Napa Valley Wine Train: This adventure in California mixes the beauty of the region with the wine that it is known for. Wine tasting is a great activity on a vacation, especially for couples, and while taking the wine train, they can also peek out to appreciate the lovely vineyards in Napa Valley. These train rides also offer amazing meals and hold special events all throughout the fall season.

2. Great Smoky Mountains Railroad: The Great Smoky Mountains national park is a beautiful destination all throughout the year, but in the fall the trees come alive with color. What a better way to see these colors than from a train window? John Giduck highly recommends that travelers try this leisurely ride so that they can appreciate the beauty of this top vacation destination in comfort.

3. Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad: Colorado is one of the most beautiful destinations in the United States for outdoor lovers, and that is especially true in the fall. One of the best ways to see this stunning destinations first hand is taking this train ride through the San Juan National Forest. Like the Napa Valley ride, this train also offers special fall events.

John Giduck believes that having a unique vacation experience is very important for all travelers, and highly recommends these fall train excursions. They will offer visitors both elegance and relaxation, and give the perfect feel of the fall season. Visit for more great tips for amazing getaways from John Giduck.

Taste of Thailand Food Tours Launches Unique Culinary Experiences in Bangkok

Bangkok, Thailand (PRWEB) July 09, 2014

Taste of Thailand Food Tours, Bangkoks leading food tour operator launches a unique experience for tourists all templed out in the nations capital. At a price point less than the cost of trying separate, full-sized portions, the companys new Bites and Sites in the Village of Love food tour allows intimate groups of participants to sample an array of local foods and beverages at select tasting locations within 3.5 hours.

With approximately 30% of tourist expenditures going towards food, food tours are quickly emerging from a niche market into a major tourism area. Such tours leverage the skills of a local food sherpa to guide individuals to multiple locations and taste a variety of unique foods to learn the stories behind them. According to the World Food Travel Association, the culinary tourism market already generates over $ 150 billion annually worldwide and specific countries like the United States have already seen a 300% increase in food tours since 2008.

Asia is equally experiencing an influx in food-seeking tourists according to Jacob Holder, co-Founder of Taste of Thailand Food Tours. Since the company’s inception in January 2014, Taste of Thailand Food Tours has quickly emerged as the citys fastest growing food tour experience.

With over 15 million arrivals in 2013, Bangkok edges out others as the most visited city in the world. This translates into a massive opportunity for Taste of Thailand Food Tours to offer visitors interesting experiences designed around the citys exotic, unique and historic foods.

With food becoming the new black in mass media, television personalities and social media are inciting explorers to find their next thrill through food. In a country synonymous with its globally recognized cuisine, Bangkok is poised more than any other city in the world to leverage the fruits of its labour, says Holder. The city is a mecca for new and exciting culinary treasures and we are fortunate to have discovered some of the its delicious hidden gems to share with intimate groups of travellers.

It was partly a stark realization upon arrival to Bangkok that Holder had a lot to learn about authentic Thai cuisine that led to the development of the company’s food tour portfolio in an effort to provide educational and entertaining experiences for equally curious food-loving travelers.

However, its not just for visitors adds Taste of Thailand Food Tours co-Founder, Jittima Lapwisutthisaroj. Thais and native Bangkokians, like myself, also love learning about the history of our food and people. There are few things as emotional as eating your way through a culture. We provide an intimate window to Thai culture, history and people with each bite that is enjoyable for all participants, regardless of their background.

Taste of Thailand offers daily walking food tours in Bangkok each week. More information can be found at or by contacting info(at)tasteofthailandfoodtours(dot)org.
