If you were wondering where to go on your next international adventure, wonder no more! We’ve got you covered with our favourite destinations for vegan travellers, where you’ll be guaranteed to find delicious and plentiful plant-based eats.
1. Bristol, UK
Bristol tops the list, being recently crowned the ‘vegan capital of the world’ after a new study found that it had the most vegan-related searches on Google. With this claim to fame, it’s no surprise that the city has a huge number and range of amazing vegan restaurants to offer. No matter where you choose to eat, you are bound to find some truly delicious dishes.
2. Tel Aviv, Israel
With the highest percentage of vegans per capita, Tel Aviv is a popular choice for vegan travellers. The number of vegan options have skyrocketed in recent years, including a combination of Middle Eastern and Mediterranean food. Be sure to try the hummus and falafel while you’re there – your tastebuds will thank you.
3. Chiang Mai, Thailand
In Thailand, you don’t have to miss out on all the great Southeast Asian flavours foodies love. Veganism is no new thing in Chiang Mai, so you can tell any restaurant staff that you’re “jay” (vegan) and they will know how to cater to your dietary needs. You certainly won’t be going hungry while you’re exploring the many shrines and temples.
4. Chennai, India
If you like aromatic spices, Chennai is the place for you. Chana masala, vegetable samosas, vegetable biryani are just a few of the great tasting traditionally vegan dishes that are readily available in India. Catering for its largely vegetarian population, the majority of the non-vegan dishes made can easily be adjusted to suit a plant-based diet.
5. New York, USA
New York is known for its practically overwhelming number of options so it makes sense that you’ll never have to look far to find a vegan-friendly restaurant in the city that never sleeps. Whether you’re looking for a hearty burger or a tantalising high tea, New York can cater to your every craving, with more than 60 vegan eateries in and around the city centre.
