One of my favourite things about travelling is getting to explore a culture through food. When you are vegan in place like China, this can be a little daunting. Fortunately, if you go to the right cities you can manage to find places. Here is my vegan food tour of Chengdu!
Before deciding to move to China I thought it would be a place where veganism would be quite popular. After all, the main religions practiced here advocate a plant-based diet and I could always find veggie dishes in the Chinese restaurants back home. However, after being accepted at York English I started to do a bit of research on Chinese diets. I found that many dishes have meat or other animal products added to them, which was worrying. This is my story on how to be a vegan in China!
