A big new travel trend for 2018: vegan and vegetarian tourism. Turns out, with the number of creative, meat-free restaurants soaring in cities across the world, there’s never been a better time to travel veggie. Which prompts an obvious question: where is the world’s non-carnivore capital? Some say it’s London: think, hip Notting Hill cafe Farmacy, swish Mayfair spot Deliciously Ella or chef James Pare’s even swisher haute-vegan cooking at The Savoy. Others say it’s Paris: dubbed “veggie-town”, the city’s ninth arrondissement is now home to 11 vegan-vegetarian restaurants. So, who wins? The truth is neither, according to the recently published Global Vegetarian Index. Commissioned by London travel agent Oliver’s Travel, the list ranks the most veggie-friendly countries in the world (based on variables like the number of vegetarian restaurants and per capita meat consumption). The winner? Not the UK (ninth). But still somewhere that wouldn’t be such a hard sell for meat-eaters: the Seychelles. Start saving.
