Explore the Beauty of Louisiana

As the home of jazz, Cajun music and creole cooking Louisiana is famous for its intense passions and has a lot to be proud for. Dining in the state is nothing short of a culinary extravaganza of colour, music and spice. Most restaurants offer guests the chance to mix food and live music.

Explore Louisiana

New Orleans is a mosaic of cultures, a blend of European, Caribbean, and African cuisine. Louisiana holidays do not get much better than enjoying hot bowls of spicy gumbo, late night jazz clubs and strolls through the historic French quarter, Bourbon Street. The next Mardi Gras Parade is planned for 04 March 2015 (the following one is 17 February 2015). The parade needs little introduction and is regarded as one of the world’s most popular events. Costumes take months to create and come in all imagined variety.
