Seychelles is the most vegetarian-friendly country in the world for vegetarian travellers.

With a total Global Vegetarian Index score of 328, Seychelles beat other high ranking nations like Thailand, Malaysia, and Sao Tome and Principe.

The Seychelles’ top score is driven by its high number of vegetarian-friendly restaurants in relation to its small population, alongside its low annual meat consumption.

While the USA has the highest annual consumption of meat, it did also rank highest for the number of vegetarian-friendly restaurants. However, Seychelles was the country with the most vegetarian-friendly restaurants in relation to population size.
