Bulgarian Cuisine Is a Real Lure for Tourists
Vacations for pregnant women and holidays for lonely people are the latest hit at the International Tourism Fair in London

Tripe soup, banitsa, Shopska salad, cheverme, strong brandy and special wines will lure tourists to come to visit Bulgaria. The traditional Bulgarian dishes can attract as many foreigners as the ski resorts in the country, say tour operators. We have to make advantage of this increasingly popular form of tourism as there's a lot of original dishes in Bulgaria that can pleasantly surprise gourmets all around the world, say experts. More than half of the tourists are interested in food that will be served to them during their stay, shows a British survey conducted at the International Tourism Fair in London. According to the study 83% of holidaymakers that travel with prepaid all-inclusive packages are ready to give up lunch and dinner to try local specialties.

Alternative forms of tourism have become a real hit at the International Tourism Fair in London. There are two options for the seekers of gourmet pleasures. You can simply choose an itinerary from the reference book of the top 100 restaurants in the world or seek exotic experience with traditional dishes in ordinary local restaurants.
Some of the most popular offers of tour operators are vacations for future mothers. The most suitable time for such a vacation is the second trimester of pregnancy, say experts. Upon their arrival in the hotel the future parents receive gifts for babies. Some of the most sought after hotels are those offering SPA procedures for pregnant women and childbirth classes. Future mothers can also order special massages for relieving back pains and tension in the legs.
Holidays for lonely hearts are also becoming increasingly popular, say tour operators. Huge profits can be made on this market, as there are a lot of people who are willing to pay top dollar just to avoid the uncomfortable feeling to have dinner alone or be bored during their vacation. There are two types of loners. Some of them look for extreme experience and others just want to find a soul mate.
