    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.


Preparing for a trip while vegetarian or vegan can be a cumbersome process. Researching the country's traditional cuisine, spending hours online looking for restaurants, and planning emergency snacks in case of a total absence of options is tiring. Sometimes, you just want to be able to enjoy your trip without having to worry about what you're going to eat. Lucky for you, there are vegetarian and vegan-friendly cities all around the world. You just need to know where to look.
