For vegetarians, diet is a major consideration when choosing a digital nomad city. This article introduces 10 "vegetarian-friendly" cities for your reference!

Being a digital nomad is not just a work style but can also be seen as a "lifestyle." Nomads work, eat, drink, play, and enjoy life in this lifestyle. However, when it comes to eating, some may worry: "What if I'm vegetarian? How can I know if a place is vegetarian-friendly and offers a variety of choices?"

To address this concern, The Vegan Review, a website sharing vegetarian-related information, has listed the ten most suitable cities for vegetarians to experience the nomadic life.

Let's take a look at them!


1. Taipei, Taiwan

In 2017, CNN selected Taipei as one of the "Top 10 Vegetarian-Friendly Cities" globally; in 2023, the "World Vegetarian Population Survey" pointed out that Taiwan's vegetarian population ratio reached 13% (about 3.2 million people), ranking third worldwide. For vegetarian nomads, Taipei is undoubtedly one of the best options!

2. Chiang Mai, Thailand

Chiang Mai, often considered an ideal nomadic spot, is also an excellent choice for vegetarians. Moreover, in this affordable city, you can enjoy a rich and delicious selection of vegetarian options without breaking the bank.

3. Canggu, Bali, Indonesia

When thinking of Bali, many picture beautiful beaches and a relaxed lifestyle. However, like Chiang Mai, Bali is a hotspot for nomads, offering far more vegetarian options than one might expect!

4. Singapore

As one of the "business hubs" in Asia, Singapore attracts workers worldwide. It embraces various cultures and dietary habits so that vegetarians can handle a lack of options.


5. Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain

Las Palmas has various vegetarian options, catering to raw vegans (who do not consume animal products and high-temperature cooked food) and those on a gluten-free diet. This ensures everyone finds something that meets their needs.

6. Prague, Czech Republic

When it comes to Prague's cuisine, many might first think of meat-heavy traditional dishes. However, in recent years, the number of vegetarians in Prague has increased, making it one of the cities friendly to vegetarians.

7. Lisbon, Portugal

Like Bali and Chiang Mai, Lisbon is a globally renowned digital nomad city. It attracts workers worldwide and offers a diverse range of vegetarian options.

8. Berlin, Germany

Speaking of Germany, many might first think of dishes like pork knuckles or other meat-centric meals. However, in recent years, Berlin's vegetarian population has increased with the influx of immigrants, and in 2015, it was even named the "Vegan Capital of the World" by an American food magazine.

Astonishingly, the city also boasts the world's first "Vegan Avenue," Schivelbeiner Strase, offering a rich selection of vegetarian dining options and "animal-free" lifestyle products.


9. Portland, Oregon, USA

Portland is known for embracing various lifestyles, and vegetarians will find themselves worry-free here. Besides the rich vegetarian options, the city hosts the world's first Vegan Mall, allowing for an effortless enjoyment of diverse cuisines.

10. Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Although less popular than other Mexican cities for digital nomads, this tranquil place offers convenient internet, reasonable living costs, and a rich selection of vegetarian options that ensure the food always energizes you. Why not visit and see for yourself?
