Today the vegan diet is no longer a trend; it’s a lifestyle, and
a very needed one if you want to stay healthy and live a long,
happy life while taking care of the environment.
Finding vegan alternatives in restaurants is getting easier
worldwide, but some travel destinations are really going the
extra mile. Here are the top 5 travel destinations that are easy
to travel to.
Lisbon might very well be the most beautiful city in Europe, at
the very least, it’s one of the most colourful. For vegan food,
the Portuguese city certainly ranks high. It is illegal for
public schools and universities not to offer vegan options — and
that’s a statement.
With an already veggie-heavy diet, it comes as no surprise the
city offers a wide variety of vegan alternatives. Expect plant-
based burgers and sushi, and, of course, the city’s famous sweet
two-biters, the pastéis de nata.
Lisbon is a walkable city; you can spend the day getting lost in
its pebbled streets, and you don’t have to walk far to find a
vegan restaurant or café.
Taiwan, a small island near the Chinese coast is a popular
foodie destination. The night markets are legendary, and so are
the tender and steamy dumplings found in every other corner.
Despite what you might think, the island is quite modern and
chick, but it has deep roots into their cooking traditions. A
large portion of the population is Buddhist, meaning many dishes
stay clear from animal products.
Lots of dishes, like the famous dumplings, are steamed, and more
often than not filled with veggies, and noodle soups and broths
are imaginative and served with or without meat.
The vegan community is strong in Taiwan, and you will find many
establishments dedicated to the plant-based diet. It comes as no
surprise some consider the small country a vegan heaven.
Some countries are vegan friendly, but in Thailand, you don’t
even have to try! The abundance of fresh produce, ripe veggies
and sweet fruit are overwhelming; they’re in the markets and
every other corner.
With deep roots into Buddhism, the concept of being vegan is
part of Thailand’s normality. Loo for the word “jay” in the
menus and street signs to make sure you’re entering a vegan
Curry and noodle dishes are aromatic and satisfying, but there
are also many western-inspired dishes; in Thailand, you will not

Melbourne, Australia, is a coastal city in the Victoria region,
and it’s considered the trendiest city in Australia, even more
than Sydney. Here, food is not an afterthought, there’s real
talent behind the pots and pans, and vegan food is not only well
represented, it’s widely embraced.
For breakfast, try scrambled tofu, and for a hearty lunch, try
an eggplant schnitzel or a vegan burrito. Melbourne even has its

Add to this the thriving speciality coffee scene and the close
by wine regions to visit, and you have a complete foodie
experience on your hands.
Israel is a hot travel destination right now; the country is the
perfect combination of ancient history and modernity. Food-wise,
Israel’s cooking traditions have always been aligned with
wellness, and vegan food is top notch. Did someone say hummus?
The country has been called the most vegan-friendly destination
in the world. Chickpeas and lentils, essential plant-based
proteins, are well represented in everyday meals, and top
Israelite chefs have taken vegan food to culinary heights never
