Following a vegetarian or vegan diet can be tricky when traveling. Ever wondered what the best destinations are for you?
Palitana, Gujarat, India
For many vegetarians and vegans, Indian cuisine might already be a safe go-to when deciding what to get for dinner. Why not experience it firsthand? Influenced by various strands of Hinduism, India is well known for being home to the largest vegetarian population in the world. The western state of Gujarat is particularly friendly to non-meat eaters, and about 70% of its population is vegetarian. American food giants such as KFC, Pizza Hut, and Domino's have even created vegetarian menus for their outlets in the state. And if you want to go a step further, Palitana in southern Gujarat is one of the two exclusively vegetarian towns in the world. It's also the oldest.
