Once viewed as a small group of people who avoided animal products for ethical reasons, veganism has since expanded to include a much larger, and fast growing, group of people seeking healthier, cleaner food and a more enriching lifestyle. As a result, being a vegan is no longer seen as an inconvenient lifestyle; it’s easy and accessible. To get into the vegan spirit, Booking.com, the global leader in connected travellers with the widest choice of incredible places to stay, is highlighting five great vegan stays across the world.
