Every destination has a different cuisine and it might be actually scary for a health-conscious traveler or an individual who has several ethical preferences to try new dishes. More than the dishes and the culture, it is the ingredients in there that frightens the soul. How about traveling to destinations that offer a wholesome vegan diet experience? This new-age cult aka Veganism has taken over the millennial generation by storm and has even managed to pull in a lot of elderly people. And, why not?
