Travel infographic for chocolate lovers: where to get the best hot chocolate, eclairs and more around the globe


A new infographic reveals the best restaurants, off-the-radar cafes and destinations in the world to buy hot chocolate, eclairs and other chocolate creations.

The detailed chart, created by the people at Love Home Swap - the world's biggest home exchange holiday service - takes us around the world in chocolate, featuring the ultimate stops from the US to Australia.

It caters to all budgets, from the specialist markets that will allow you to try decadent sweets for free, to the indulgent Chocolate Train in Switzerland which takes you through the Swiss countryside and into the Cailler factory for a tasting session.

With beautiful illustrations, the graphic also highlights local delicacies that are a must-try, such as the Caramelia Crunchy Pearls from French chocolate shop Valrhona and Blue Cheese chocolate in Norway.
