Lonely Planet Food is sharing an inspiring and practical guide to vegan-friendly travel, from vegan cooking classes in India to wildlife watching tours in New Zealand, with the publication of The Vegan Travel Handbook.

The Vegan Travel Handbook is packed with insight and advice on Lonely Planet’s favourite vegan-friendly destinations, tours and experiences, and tips on where to go, when to go, how to confidently order food, 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.”

In The Vegan Travel Handbook, Lonely Planet asks, “Are you an adrenaline junkie who happens to prefer tofu? A history buff with a thing for nuts? A beach bum who adores tempeh? A culture vulture taking a holiday from animal products? Choose a place that interests you first, and figure out what you’ll eat there later. Of course, if you’re a gourmand whose number one hobby is eating, there are plenty of destinations for you to choose from as well. Their locations might surprise you.”
