Winners of World’s 10 Best Vegetarian Travel Destinations Announced

(PRWEB) October 31, 2005 — VegNews, America’s premier vegetarian lifestyle magazine, has announced the top 10 vegetarian travel destinations of 2005. Editors of the magazine selected the very best from among the thousands of travel spots throughout the world catering to the vegetarian market.

“These spas, eco-retreats and resorts are leaders in the vegetarian travel industry. We’re thrilled to honor their accomplishments with a 2005 Best Vegetarian Travel Destination Award,” said publisher Joseph Connelly.

Once upon a time, veggie vacationers were left to fend for themselves in a sea of omnivorous package tours, cruises catering to carnivores, and clueless concierges who couldn’t begin to point in the direction of the nearest veg-friendly dining establishment. Foreign travel? Oh la la! This used to require a PhD in Pantomime to keep beastly bits off dinner plates, and even then, there were no guarantees that a meal would arrive vegetarian. Thankfully, those days are a world away. Vegetarian travel has finally come into its own.

The VegNews’ editorial team searched high and low for this year’s 10 Best Travel Destinations and put each to the test. Take an invigorating hike up a sacred mountain, relax for a spell at a luxurious spa, or swim with the kids in the sparkling Caribbean Sea and let the warmth of the sun melt your worries away.

The September/October Travel issue is currently on newsstands everywhere. The feature is also available on the magazine’s website, http://vegnews.com/best_veg_travel.html.
