every lokapack guide focuses on


We need food for sustenance, yes, but it is so much more than that. Eating is a lens through which we get glimpses of a place’s history, its habits and the pace of life. 


Food is one of the best (and most fun) ways to learn about a culture, at least we think so. Our goal is to help travelers experience memorable meals, learn about the world and enjoy themselves in the process.

feeling good

Finding a balance between a love of eating and feeling good is essential for us, and we make sure to include ways for you to do the same on the road.
