Eating well is essential to any great vacation – A dream get-away certainly isn’t complete without delicious food to complete it. For vegans, however, it isn’t as easy to explore the latest, most talked-about spots since vegan dining options and accommodations aren’t always available.

Fortunately, there are now more options than ever that help vegans keep it ethical during vacation. Here are some valuable tips.

First, research on your destination in mind

Want to check out the ancient temples of South East Asia? The quaint villages of the French countryside? Or maybe explore more local areas such as New Orleans? Wherever you plan to travel to, it always pays to do your research before you even book your plans.

Evaluating the vegan-friendliness of the place, such as how local customs regard animals and meat, as well as the accessibility of vegan options, will prove to be incredibly helpful in letting you enjoy your trip without worry.

Second, learn the necessary local terms

When traveling, you’re sure to want to try the local food, and if you choose the right location, you may be able to find vegan options that will give you a taste of the local cuisine. There is, of course, no better way to find that out than to ask the locals themselves.

Since “vegan” isn’t easily translatable in most languages, knowing the phrases that mean “no meat/fish/chicken/dairy” will be helpful when it comes to asking around. With enough patience and confidence to converse with locals, you just might find a hidden vegan culinary gem.

Third, book the right tour partner

There are heaps of customized travel options available to vegan travelers today. Why settle for hoping that your hotel or cruise will have vegan-options when you can have a full-on specifically vegan trip?

Going on a vegan cruise, for example, provides you with not only breakfast-to-dinner vegan-certified eats, but you can trust that the entertainment and the accommodations are wholly vegan and cruelty-free, as well. No need to concern yourself over non-animal friendly amusements such as elephant rides or animal-tested toiletries.

As vegans, nothing makes a vacation more relaxing than knowing that your relaxation does not compromise being ethical. There’s no better way to ensure that your vacation is cruelty-free than to book an all-inclusive vegan cruise with Vegan Culinary Cruises.

With a wide range of destinations to choose from as well as customizable, fully-vegan menu choices and accommodations, your vacation time is sure to be well-spent.
