The Top 5 Vegan Travel Destinations

The Top 5 Vegan Travel Destinations

By: TravelAble

When we travel, we tend to seek out new experiences, new sights, and, to be sure, new flavors. Every place has its own culture and cuisine, and these days, it’s possible to find vegan and vegetarian options almost anywhere. Still, that doesn’t mean that all cities have equal offerings. 

Here at TravelAble Vacations, we want to help every traveler enjoy a journey that will truly leave a lasting impression. If you or your loved ones need great vegan food in order to make the most of an adventure, our list of the top five vegan travel destinations is the perfect place to start planning your next trip.

Oakland, California – USA

It’s possible, even easy, to find exceptional vegan food all over the state of California. Still, if you have to pick just one city to visit, Oakland in the San Francisco Bay area just might take the cake. Why? Well, the city’s vibrant culture has allowed vegan restaurants of all shapes and sizes to flourish. Vegan pop-ups, vegan fine dining, you name it: Oakland, CA has it all.

Our recommendation: Millennium Restaurant

Portland, Oregon – USA

When you’re on the hunt for vegan travel destinations, it’s not a bad idea to consider the ratio of residents to vegan restaurants—and Portland’s ratio speaks for itself. With roughly one vegan restaurant per 600 people, this city is undoubtedly one of the most vegan-friendly cities to visit in the Pacific Northwest. It even lives up to its weird and wonderful reputation with options like vegan Detroit-style pizza, vegan donuts, and vegan tacos.

Our recommendation: Mis Tacones

Atlanta, Georgia – USA

We all love the west coast, but you have to admit that it’s a fairly obvious destination for vegan travel and food experiences. If you’ve been there and done that, you can mix things up by planning your next vacation in Atlanta, Georgia, where vegan restaurants can be found just about everywhere you go. Plus, the culinary traditions of Atlanta make this city a particularly special place to go vegan. Looking for vegan barbeque or vegan soul food? Atlanta has you covered.

Our recommendation: Tassili’s Raw Reality Café

Chiang Mai – Thailand

Chaing Mai, Thailand is often referred to as the vegan capital of Asia, and for good reason. After all, the numbers don’t lie: Chaing Mai has more vegan options than any other city in the world. If you really want to sample as much great food as possible, visit during the nine-day vegetarian festival that takes place every autumn.

Our recommendation: Asa Vegan Kitchen & Studio

Ubud, Bali – Indonesia

Bali is best known for its beaches, but that’s certainly not the only reason it’s ended up on our list of the best vegan travel destinations in the world. In fact, the only city that has more vegan restaurants than Ubud is Chiang Mai! Ubud is such a popular destination for vegans that it was selected by the World Vegan Organization to host 2022’s International Vegan Festival. It’s also worth noting that Indonesia is the birthplace of tempeh, and many local dishes incorporate this vegan staple.

Our recommendations: The Seeds of Life, Zest Ubud
