Vegetarian travel used to be something we associated with hippies and bohos backpacking their way through India, Thailand and South America. How things have changed. As the world has embraced vegetarianism as a chosen way of life, so have all the things associated with not eating meat. In the past, finding vegetarian food in many locations around the world was something of a struggle with many people seeing vegetarianism as far from the norm but thankfully now, there are many vegetarian restaurants throughout the world with some excellent cuisine on offer so vegetarian travel is a great deal easier. Let’s take a short visit to the cities where the vegetable is king!
1. Chiang Mai, Thailand
Thailand has always been a Mecca for vegetarian travel and its second largest city, Chiang Mai has a wealth of vegetarian meals. With many vegetarian and vegan eating places, this can be the perfect place for travelers to pick up a delicious vegetarian meal easily. Thailand has a vegetarian festival each year and good fortune is said to fall upon those who adhere to the rituals of the festival and the strict ten day vegetarian or vegan diet.
