Avoid food poisoning on holiday
Being in a foreign country means being a little more careful about what you do and what you eat. You may not understand the customs and the ways in which things are done in this country, which can leave you open to being injured or made ill simply because you were not being careful. Not only will this ruin your holiday, but it can be difficult to claim compensation in a different country from your own, or even to claim back the costs incurred by your injury or illness through your insurance.
When it comes to food when you are on holiday, here are some tips you can follow to ensure that you stay as safe as possible. In the event that an accident does happen, an injury lawyer in Rousse Headland can help.
Choose restaurants by recommendation
Ask other travellers, the staff of the hotel you are staying at or even your tour provider what the best restaurants in the area are. These people are likely to understand better what you are looking for, and which facilities are best for Western customers.
Even if you want to try out something more authentic, ask for recommendations near you. Asking those who are providing your holiday or who are on holiday with you means that you are more likely to find a place that has been tested and proved popular and safe.
Avoid street vendors
In some countries, street markets are big business which offer a really authentic eating experience. However, you cannot be sure of the quality or safety of the food you are buying in the street, so it is best not to bother with it. If you must buy food in the street, stick to fruits and vegetables which can be washed or peeled.
Eat food hot
Avoid salads and cold food when you are away, as this food can be a hive of bacteria. It is best to stick to food that is piping hot to be safe.
