The book every adventurous vegan will want for Christmas


As someone who loves a bacon sandwich and stir-fried chicken with cashew nuts I may not be the best choice to review a guide to vegan travel. 

But I'm also keen on a vegetarian curry and I'm the only reviewer we've got, so you'll have to bear with me. 

Lonely Planet has just released a very useful new guide book any self-respecting plant eater will want in their Christmas stocking: The Vegan Travel Handbook.

Melbourne has been named a Top 10 Vegan-Friendly City and Adelaide's Staazi & Co is a Top 10 Vegan Food Truck in the new publication. 

The book is a guide that is actually easy to navigate and useful - whether you fancy a cooking school in India or a street snack in Bangkok. 

The book feature's the Lonely Planet team's favourite vegan-friendly destinations, tours and experiences, and tips on where to go when, how to confidently order food in unfamiliar surroundings, and staying healthy on the road.

"Consider this book your primer for how to practice what you already do in your home town, on the global go," Lonely Planet says. 

"And just as your career or favourite colour hasn’t been dictated by your diet of choice, don’t limit your potential travel destinations by their per capita offerings of what you prefer to scoop on to your plate when back in the comfort of your own home. 

"You can be vegan anywhere, and a growing number of people worldwide certainly are. It’s just a matter of a little extra preparation and a flexible attitude. A sense of humour helps, too."

So whether you are a tofu fan, or simply fancy a break from meat and fish, there are plenty of destinations for you to choose from as well.
