Enjoying the local cuisine is a massive part of any holiday. But for vegan travellers, it can often be tough to work out which destination is going to best suit your needs. So to celebrate World Vegan Month this November, one travel site has complied a list of some of the best vegan-friendly travel destinations around the globe. Research from Booking.com found that more than six in 10 travellers say they pick a destination for its great food or drink. While more than a third of global travellers - rising to 40% for millennials - are planning to take a dedicated food tourism trip sometime this year. According to the research, a tenth of global travellers worrying about dietary requirements not being met, whereas almost half of global travellers - rising to 60% for millennials, are still looking to be more adventurous with the type of cuisine they eat while travelling. With this in mind, the site has delved into its 29m listings in more than 141k destinations around the world to compile a roundup of the best destinations for vegan cuisine, along with the best places to stay.

THE PROS AND CONS OF LIVING IN A FRENCH COTTAGE MADE ENTIRELY OF CHOCOLATEopens in new window
Would it be nice to live in a chocolate house? It’s a question I’ve honestly never considered before. But now the time has come for us all ponder it together, because an all-chocolate cottage in Sèvres, France is available for rent on Booking.com. (At least, it was—other guests appear to have snapped up the two available dates for the bargain price of €50, or $59, a night.) The 18-square-meter cottage, designed and created by artisan chocolatier Jean-Luc Decluzeau, is located in the glass house L’Orangerie Ephémère at the museum Cité de la Ceramique de Sèvres. Decluzeau went for an après-ski vibe, and it is indeed incredibly cozy-looking, featuring a chocolate fireplace, chocolate bookshelves, a chocolate chandelier, a marbled-chocolate sink, and—wait for it—just outside, a chocolate duck pond and flower bed.
