CNN Lists 10 Best Veg-Friendly Travel Locales

From major US metropolises to faraway Buddhist meccas, CNN gives road-ready vegans 10 great cities to visit this summer.

CNN recently posted an article on its website that lists the 10 best veg destinations for vegans who want to treat their taste buds while charting new territory. The usual US suspects such as New York City and Portland, OR made the news outlet’s list due to their plethora of foodie, farm-to-table options and diverse repertoire of vegan eateries, but for those who want to go abroad, CNN recommends Chennai, India—the supposed birthplace of vegetarianism—and Chiang Mai, Thailand, the latter of which has a massive Buddhist population and more than 80 vegetarian restaurants. European travellers would be wise to go to London, which People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals ranked as the most vegetarian-friendly city in 2009, or Glasgow, Scotland, which PETA dubbed the UK’s most veg-friendly city in 2013.
