Luxurious vegetarian paradise in Mumbai, India

There is no doubt that India is one of the top destinations for vegetarians. With nearly 30% of the population being strict vegetarian and a big part of the others having varying degrees of meat restrictions vegetarian meals usually makes up more than half of the menu in most restaurants. With so many different dietary requirements, many restaurants are also accustomed to modifications, which is good news for all vegans.

One of the latest additions to VegTrip, The Trident Bandra Kurla is a luxurious five star hotel in Mumbai. Featuring three different restaurants (Indian, Italian and mixed) all having large vegetarian selections and being extremely flexible with special dietary requirements (vegan, gluten...) this hotel guarantees a warm welcome to India.

Planning a vacation to Greece? How about staying at a certified organic and vegetarian hotel?

Until recently VegTrip has not had any hotels listed on the Greek market. Very unfortunate as this is such a beautiful country and a major tourist destination in Europe.
 
Meet Mani Sonnenlink. Certified in 2012 as the first organic hotel in Greece, this hotel lies embedded in a beautiful, natural garden, located on a hillside and overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. It is a place of relaxation and regeneration, inspiring body, mind and soul. It is also the first vegetarian hotel in Greece to be added to VegTrip!
 
Here are some pictures to enjoy.

Finding vegan shoes

Finding good quality vegan shoes is not always easy. We therefore set out to visit the shop Il Gatto con gli Stivali (literally "Puss in boots") in Rome to try out a few different brands.

These are not your average fake leather shoes but are made with comfort and quality in mind. They are made out of high quality, breathable materials. Having tried out several pairs while walking the streets of Rome we can confirm that this is really the case.

The shoes we tried out are mainly manufactured by four different companies, di Romeo in Italy, Vegetarian Shoes in the UK, Novacas in the US and finally Cri de Coeur. We also tried ordering a few shoes directly from di Romeo and this worked out great.

 

di Romeo is an Italian brand which is also available online

 

Vegan women shoes, vegan purse and vegan wallet

  

More vegan shoes

To sum up, most of the shoes that we tried were very comfortable and so far seem to be of high quality. If you look around, especially in bigger cities it's relatively easy to find shops selling vegan shoes and if you happen to live very far from one, many of the brands have online shops shipping worldwide.
