The World Vegan Travel team.
World Vegan Travel was featured on Colleen Patrick-Goudreau’s award winning podcast, in a recent episode about her trip (which we organized and ran) in Vietnam.
Colleen Patrick-Goudreau is our friend and partner in a collaboration that's come to be known as CPG Vegan Trips. We’ll definitely have to write a post on how we came to be on this crazy adventure of working together to create amazing trips for vegans around the world!
In April 2018, Colleen, David (her husband), Seb and Brighde travelled to Vietnam on our FIRST CPG Vegan Trip to Vietnam. It was Colleen and David’s first trip to Vietnam and they absolutely loved it! And what's not to love: from the all vegan cruise around UNESCO World Heritage Halong Bay on our very own private junk boat, to our welcome night cyclo ride around the crazy streets of Hanoi, and add our visit to the ancient citadel of Hue, our bike ride around the Hoi An countryside, and so much more, and you can start to see why Vietnam is one of the top travel destination in the world!
Our hotels -- which were not vegan or even offered vegan menus before our trip --all went above and beyond with the food that they created for us. It was a culmination of a lot of work between the hotels chefs and the restaurants, Chi (our wonderful person on the ground in Vietnam) and Brighde and Seb. Our incredible travellers were blown away by the quality and variety of the food provided by the local providers, as Colleen pointed out in her podcast. In fact, she now prefers Vietnamese food to Thai food!
Please do check out the podcast for a recount of our trip as well as some tips and warnings about what to look out for if you are travelling in Vietnam.
If you are interested in enjoying Vietnam with a group of amazing fellow vegans (or vegan-curious) in 5-star luxury we are planning another trip in 2019: CPG Curated Vietnam trip in April 2019.
Hotels and restaurants that stood out
Colleen mentions so many of the hotels, restaurants and organisation in her podcast. Here’s an overview of the ones we visited on our CPG Vegan Vietnam 2018.
We want to give them a shout out for stepping up to the challenge of providing incredible food for our group and being prepared to go out of their comfort zone. And of course to the already vegan places! Keep doing you! You are amazing!
Sights we visited that Colleen mentioned on her podcast.
Organisations we visited
These places are not mentioned on the podcast but worth going to visit if you can.
Animals Asia: This incredible place is trying to help Moon and Sunbears who are often kept in terrible conditions so that their bile can be extracted. This place is only open for visitors at certain times. If the timing works for you, then check it out. Seeing these bears in comfort after such a tough life will be a highlight!
Our team of travel experts and local guides work hard to create one-of-a-kind travel experiences that showcase each country's culture, people and geography, while being specifically catered to the needs and interest of vegans and vegan-friendly travelers.
