A vegan’s guide to Barcelona

Let’s face it. Until recently, vegan travel could be a bleak experience.

So much so that, in Barcelona, you’re knee-deep in tofu scrambles from the moment you arrive. Vegan Barcelona is a plant-based foodie’s nirvana.

Michelin-starred Barcelona

Whether you’re well versed in the world of petit fours and pea foam reductions, or just enjoy a deliciously decadent meal every now and then, Barcelona’s Michelin star restaurants will not disappoint.

Abu Dhabi

Dubai holidays are all about the resort, right?
