For some reason, drunk food is always a good idea after bars close—well, at least at the time. And it seems people around the world aren’t all that different when it comes to how they cap off a big night out: We all get the drunk munchies, even if our go-to drunk dishes differ. Next time you’re traveling and find yourself a little tipsy, seek out the local drunk food. Here’s our guide of what to eat after the bar kicks you out in these 12 countries around the world.

Czech Republic – Smažený sýr

After a night drinking Pilsen beers in Prague, seek out a smažený sýr, which is basically a fried cheese sandwich. A huge chunk of cheese breaded and deep-fried is stuffed into a fresh roll coated with ketchup and mustard. This tasty sandwich is sold by street carts and it’s so popular even Czech McDonald’s have it on their menu.

Canada – Poutine

Our Canadian friends just north of the border have concocted a french fry dish that is quite possibly the perfect drunk food. A basket full of french fries is topped with gravy and cheese curds. Carbs + grease + salt = happy drunk person.

South Africa – Boerie roll

Think of the boerie roll as a hot dog on steroids. This specialty starts with a boerewors, which is a beef sausage made with lamb, pork and spices. This sausage is served in a hot dog bun topped with tomatoes, chili and onion relish.

Germany – Currywurst

Another country fond of drunk sausages is Germany, but Berlin has put their twist on it with currywurst. These sausages are a must try, sober or drunk. A currywurst is pork sausage that’s steamed then fried and either served in a bun or cut in slices topped with curry ketchup (ketchup spiced with curry powder) or ketchup topped with curry powder.

Thailand’s national drunk food, dehydrated squid, may seem a bit odd but you just might crave the savory/salty flavors

Thailand – Dried squid

After a few too many glasses of rice whiskey, the Thais reach for dried squid to munch on. The squid man drives his motorbike up and down the bar-lined streets luring the drunks out to his cart. This salty treat is cooked on a grill and often heated up. If you miss the squid man just head to 7-Eleven where dried squid is sold packaged in a bag next to potato chips.

Japan – Ramen

Stop slurping beers and start slurping a big bowl of ramen noodles. Japan does ramen right, so forget your college days of ramen from a plastic package. This hearty bowl is often filled with sliced pork, dried seaweed, noodles and green onions served in a fish or meat broth. There are tons of different styles as every region of Japan has their own variation.

Mexico – Tacos

Soak up the booze with al pastor tacos, served in a double corn tortilla topped with onions, pineapple and cilantro. It’s always a good time for tacos. The best part about visiting Mexico is that there are taco street carts on every corner, even late at night.

Philippines – Sisig

Sisig is a Filipino specialty that you’d rather not know what’s in it…but if you must: It’s parts of the pigs that don’t often make the menu like the head, liver and other leftover bits. The meat is diced before being boiled then broiled on the grill. Next, this meaty mixture is seasoned with chopped onions, chili peppers and calamansi, a local fruit. It’s served on a sizzling hot plate. Sisig can be found all over the 7,000+ Filipino Islands but some of the best is in Coron Palawan at a mom and pop seaside shop.

Down Under, Aussies go for meat pies after the bar | Photo by GettingStamped.com

Australia – Meat pie

The Aussie‘s stumble into the bakery for their beloved meat pies. This snack is a great handheld weapon to help stop the impending hangover. There are tons of types of meat pies but they all basically contain some minced meat, gravy and some sorts of veggies. Pick up a chicken-curry meat pie on the way back to the hotel to ward off tomorrow’s pain.

USA – Pizza

As you probably know, Americans go straight for a big slice of ‘za. Pizza’s usually pretty easy to get by the slice late at night and styles of ‘za differ all over the country. In NYC they like thin crust, Chicago loves its deep dish and Wisconsin loves their cheese so much they put Mac ‘n’ Cheese right on top.

The international undisputed drunk food of the world: doner kebab – Photo by alexmontjohn – Flickr

International pick – Döner kebabs

No matter where you are in the world after a night out you can almost always find a kebab or some variation of it involving spinning meat and pita bread. It doesn’t matter how late or what country you’re in, a kebab is always a good choice after the bar. It really is the perfect drunk food. The thick pita bread will help soak up the last few drinks and the delicious greasy meat will satisfy your booze-induced food cravings.

If you fantasize about being “one with nature” on your next vacation—but don’t want to actually sleep in a tent—let us introduce you to the tentalow.

Don’t be fooled by the word. This accommodation option is not your average tent. Not by a longshot. A tentalow is a “tent” on opulent overdrive. Typically a structure framed in canvas that’s perched atop a platform with open-air views, it boasts the modern amenities and service you’d expect from a 4-star hotel.

On top of being ultra-unique, tentalows are found in some of the most mind-blowing settings Mother Nature has birthed. While extremely popular in Africa, we’re starting to see this accommodation pop up in other locales where the weather is warm and the desire to be “one with nature” is a high priority for travelers.

Think of a tentalow as a way to brag to your friends about “roughing it” in the middle of nowhere while you are in fact very, very spoiled indeed. Ready to give it a go? Here are 7 of coolest tentalow experiences across Africa and the Middle East, all now bookable on Orbitz.

Kenya: Mahali Mzuri

Mahali Mzuri means “beautiful place” in Swahili, and this luxury, all-inclusive safari camp owned by Sir Richard Branson certainly lives up to its name. Situated on the private Olare Motorogi Conservancy in the Maasai Mara, it boasts 12 tentalows, each one named after a Masai tribe living in the conservancy. They have an otherworldly, spaceship-like quality to them (not totally unsurprising given Sir Richard’s ambitions in space tourism), yet seamlessly blend into the Serengeti landscape. All are stylishly decorated with an ensuite bathroom, private deck and front-row views to abundant game—think zebras, elephants and giraffes —that roam the sprawling plains below.

Morocco: Merzouga Luxury Desert Lodge

Live out “Aladdin” fantasies with a stay at this luxury desert camp in Morocco. Merzouga Luxury Desert Lodge offers ten spacious tentalows with a canvas of camel skin, evoking the traditions of nomadic cultures of the area, and decorated in sophisticated Moroccan style. The privacy of this camp is ideal for those who enjoy peace, attentive service and sleeping under a canopy of stars. All meals are included in the price and activities include camel rides, picnics at the oasis, dune hikes and—and course—the most insanely wonderful stargazing you’ll ever experience.

South Africa: Settlers Drift

Nine spacious and luxuriously decorated tented suites overlook a pristine river attracting hippo, giraffe and zebra at the Settlers Drift all-inclusive safari camp in South Africa’s southern coast. Settlers Drift, which is located in a remote and untouched part of the Kariega Game Reserve, is family-owned and operated. Following a safari, guided bush walk or canoe trip, guests can return to opulent accommodations that include a bedroom, living area, full bathroom with indoor/outdoor shower and a private viewing deck. Indeed, this is not a “tent” you could ever purchase at the local sports store.

Tanzania: Sayari Camp

Watch the famed Great Migration (June–October) of wildebeests and zebras from the private deck of your luxury tentalow at Sayari Camp. Set on the pristine plains of the Northern Serengeti, close to the famed Lamai Wedge, this all-inclusive safari camp boasts access to multiple river crossing points and spectacular game viewing. With just 15 tented suites, all built of canvas and designed to blend with the surrounding bush, guests have an exclusivity unparalleled in Tanzania safari-going. The natural setting and the luxuries of the modern world co-mingle here, most spectacularly with the private, open-air showers, where it’s not unusual to spot elephants or zebras as you bathe.

India: The Oberoi Sukhvilas Resort and Spa

The royal tents at this luxurious resort will make you feel exactly like that: royalty. Surrounded by 8,000 acres of protected natural forest at the foothills of the outer Himalayas, The Oberoi Sukhvilas Resort and Spa spares no expense for its guests. Each royal tent, triple canopied to ensure a comfortable temperature within, includes air conditioning, the latest technology and 24-hour butler service. All decor is inspired by the majestic caravans that once traveled during the times of the British Raj, with teak wood floors and a spacious bathroom with Ayurveda-inspired toiletries. If relaxing in your tented suite isn’t enough, there’s also a luxury spa on the grounds.

Namibia: Okahirongo Elephant Lodge

This is an upscale oasis in the midst of one of the most remote landscapes in Namibia. Okahirongo‘s seven luxury chalets and one presidential suite, all made of terra-cotta and decorated in a rich fusion of ochre, honey and sand colors, overlook a wilderness that includes rare desert-adapted elephants, black rhinos, giraffes and exotic birds. Just 18 guests are accommodated at any time, making the experience ultra-exclusive. It’s a setting in which guests embrace the privacy and the silence, and where an entire day can be spent lingering at the lodge, which has a spectacular wrap-around view, an infinity pool and two open-air lounges.

Botswana: Camp Linyanti Botswana

This is a setting for travelers who prefer privacy in one of the most exclusive safari destinations in the world. Accommodating just 10 people at any time, Camp Linyanti offers ensuite tentalows in the northwestern corner of Chobe National Park, far away from the tourist crowds. The five canvas tentalows with African-inspired decor are simple yet elegant. Each is elevated from the ground and includes air-conditioning, an ensuite bathroom and an outdoor shower that opens up to the skies. It’s not uncommon to spot elephants and water buffalo from your accommodations.

The world is getting smaller—and gay friendlier—by the day, but with time and money in tight supply for some of us, it can be hard to choose which rainbow path to travel down next. Stateside destinations like Florida and Las Vegas are often the smart budget choice, but would you believe a strong U.S. dollar isputting previously pricey vacation getaways within reach? Read on and discover why these international gay hot spots might now be perfect for the penny-pinching queer.

London, England

London, England

London, England

Britain’s swinging capital is not “cheap” by any means, but if London is calling you, know that prices these days are falling and insiders say go now. Post Brexit, the pound is dropping—fast. Consider that ten years ago it was an excruciating 2 t01 against the dollar and even six months ago it was at 1.5. Today it’s drawing close enough to even (1.22 to 1 as of this writing) that the best of gay London, including a West End show, a booty shaking night at Heaven (yes, it’s still going) and lodging at a hip hotel (some sources say lodging prices have dropped by half) are now within reach for Americans.

Guadalajara, Mexico

Guadalajara, Mexico

Guadalajara, Mexico

Remember the old timey days when a “Price is Right” contestant would lose their mind if the grand prize was a six-night stay in Acapulco? Mexico is no longer an outof reach getaway and these days is downright affordable. Puerto Vallarta has long been a fashionable gay destination and the entire Yucatan peninsula is buzzing right now, but in places like PV and Cancun you’ll pay tourist prices. Happening Guadalajara, meanwhile, is somewhat of an off-radar gay mecca boasting a dozen gay bars, a buzzy food scene, the birthplace of mariachi and posh hotels at dirt cheap prices.

Toronto, Canada

That groaning you hear? That’s the sound of Canadians bemoaning the cost of visiting the U.S., thanks to their weak dollar. (1 Canadian dollar is worth .75 cents which means the entire country is basically 25% off.) Now is truly the time to shout “Oh, Canada!” Montreal is sexy and chic as all heck and Vancouver rules when it comes to the great outdoors, but urban enthusiasts should get their cute gay booties to Toronto stat. Try a stay at hip, queer-friendly hotels like the Drake and Gladstone (whose queer parties are quite the fête), and don’t miss dinner at Nuit Social or brunch at the Commodore.

ALSO: You deserve a big gay treat! Reward yourself with Orbitz Rewards.

Cape Town, South Africa

Cape Town, South Africa

Cape Town, South Africa

The most expensive part about visiting Africa’s stunning southernmost cityis getting there. Flights from North America will set you back a penny or two, but gay-friendly Cape Town promises the thrill of a lifetime without breaking the bank. A true mecca that even includes gay rights in its constitution, this seaside metropolis boasts a queer bar for every traveler type, a half dozen gay owned hotels (several are men only) and two gay-popular beaches. Best of all, a mid-range double room will set you back a mere $100, and a day visit to Kruger National Park (think lions, zebras, elephants and rhinos) is less than ten bucks!

Panama City, Panama

Panama City, Panama

Panama City,Panama

As Americans flood Costa Rica in large numbers and countries like Nicaragua and Belize continue to lag on LGBT rights, less visited Panama is a true Central American gem. Nonstop flights from Miami can be found for as little as $150 round trip and bargains abound in the glitzy, gay friendly capital. Not only does downtown boost several gay bars, but the newly revitalized Casco Viejo (or Old City) is buzzing with food trucks, rooftop bars and boutique hotels. As costs go, places like the Waldorf Astoria and HardRock are a fraction of what they’d cost stateside, and an Uber will take you anywhere for around $2-$3.

Next time you’re bored but not up for packing your bags, take a trip around the world via webcam. You’ll open windows into faraway lands and be visiting in real time. My favorite webcam site is pointed at the snow monkeys in Japan (see below), but I also enjoy watching—and hearing—the people outside a pub in Dublin.  Which one will become your favorite?

Note that some webcam sites have ads you must watch before the webcam becomes available, sometimes you must activate a specific feature so that the webcam can work on your computer and do take into account different time zones. But all this is the small priceofgetting such a fascinating view.

Also: 7 hotels with sensational hammock programs

Jigokudani Monkey Park: Nagano Prefecture, Japan

This park’s snow monkeys, which are actually Japanese macaques, love to soak in hot springs. A few times I have seen park janitors here cleaning things up, and a few other times I’ve seen tourists trying to get photos of the red-faced creatures.

Sydney

Sydney, Australia

Sydney Harbour: Sydney, Australia

Focused on Sydney Harbour, this webcam spotlights the iconic Sydney Opera House and traffic moving across picturesque Sydney Harbour Bridge—the tallest steel arch bridge in the world.

Waikiki Beach: Oahu, HI

Focused on the lei-laden statue of surfer king Duke Kahanamoku, this webcam also captures countless tourists getting their picture taken in front. And you can enjoy it all while listening to provided Hawaiian music and watching the mellow Waikiki Beach waves in the background.

Abbey Road

Abbey Road

Abbey Road: London, England

Famous because the Beatles put it on the cover of their “Abbey Road” album, the Abbey Road intersection is now quite busy and it is no longer easy to capture a picture of someone crossing it.

Bourbon Street: New Orleans, LA

It’s always fun to watch the live action on vibrant Bourbon Street. This cam also provides live sound. Don’tforget to come backon February 28 in 2017 for Mardi Gras!

Temple Bar in Dublin

Temple Bar in Dublin

Temple Bar: Dublin, Ireland

Located on a medieval cobblestone street, the Temple Bar pub in the Temple Bar district of town seems always to be busy. This webcam provides sound so you can sometimes also capture a bit of lively conversation.

Marienplatz: Munich, Germany

Pointed at the Marienplatz, in the pedestrian-only zone of the city’s historic heart, this still cam is refreshed periodically to reveal scenes throughout the day. Mobs gather at 11 a.m., noon, and 5 p.m. to view the free glockenspiel show.

Purmerend the Netherlands

Purmerend the Netherlands

European roundabout: Purmerend, the Netherlands

I am crazy about European roundabouts. But be careful when viewing this simple traffic circle, because you can make yourself positively dizzy watching the cars whizzing in and out and around.

Table Mountain: Cape Town, South Africa

Looking out at Table Mountain, you’ll see Lion’s Head and Signal Hill peaks on the right and Devil’s Peak on the left. The “City Bowl” is just below and in front of the famous mountain.

Wailing Wall

Wailing Wall: Jerusalem, Israel

For centuries people have gathered at the Wailing Wall to place their prayer papers between the bricks in the Western Wall. Day and night it is a busy place, and this cam lets you hear sound.

Castaway Island: Fiji

I adore Fiji, and Castaway Island, a 174-acre private island that offers Fijian-style bure cottages with rustic thatched roofs, is one of my favorite spots. This webcam focused on the sand and beach helps ease the pain of not being there in person.

Gengda Wolong Nature Reserve

Gengda WolongNature Reserve

Gengda Wolong Nature Reserve: Szechwan Province, China

At the Gengda Wolong Nature Reserve in China’s Gengda Xingfu Valley, these giant pandas are fun to watch as they go about their daily activities–which quite often is all about eating bamboo.

If Pokémon was created by travel lovers and wild wanderers, it would look a lot different. You’d be able to find the coolest of cool, rarest of rare Pokémon in only the most exotic, wondrous places on earth—matched up by Pokémon type to destination, of course.
