Your Guide to Vegetarian Destinations

In the very recent past, it felt like the only choice on international menus available for vegetarians consisted of lacklustre salads, stone-hard flatbread and the occasional flavourless tofu dish, but times are changing.  Now, countries across the world are getting creative when it comes to plant-based, nutritious cuisine, incorporating their own unique cooking traditions and customs into every meal, so travellers don’t have to sacrifice taste when it comes to ordering meat-free dishes.

Whether you’re enticed by the intoxicating smell of cumin, saffron and cinnamon vegetable tagines among the fragrant stalls in Marrakech’s ancient Medina or lured in by the vibrant-coloured chickpea curries and spiced potato fritters in the Pink City of Jaipur in Northern India, rest assured there’s a myriad of mouth-watering dishes waiting to be discovered for vegetarians.

Guiding you towards the most authentic foodie experiences on your trips, our local experts are keen to show you the cooking customs and traditions in the places you visit. From sampling vegetarian dishes in local eateries on a fascinating food tour in Malaysia to trying Peruvian Chinese fusion snacks in the buzzing streets of Lima, we’ve collected some of our favourite vegetarian-friendly destinations below to inspire your next foodie getaway. Plus, for more inspiration read our blog on the best veggie-friendly destinations around the world.
