Global luxury wellness travel company Health and Fitness Travel has created a series of bespoke wellness holidays throughout Asia. This meets the demand for travellers seeking a digital detox, fitness, better nutrition or a life transformation. So, what about vegan travellers seeking a luxurious wellness holiday?
According to Euromonitor International, Australia is the third-fastest growing vegan market in the world. While Health and Fitness Travel is not an exclusively vegan travel company, a selection of their holidays can be tailored to vegan travellers seeking a wellness holiday in Asia. This emphasises the current rising need for travel groups to cater for vegan clientele. This is great news, particularly during this Veganuary month when you start thinking about where to go and what to do in the New Year.
