What Burger King looks like in 13 places around the world

When we think about travelling, our first thoughts are of experiencing something different: different languages, different cultures, and most importantly, different foods. In an effort to avoid tourist traps – even those that may be worth visiting – travellers spend hours researching every niche and local experience they can have in a new place.

But sometimes, even the most familiar experiences come with surprises of their own. Even Burger King, the second largest fast food chain on earth, varies from country to country. No matter where you are in the world, you can always get a classic Whopper – but there are still some specialty dishes found only in a select few places.
