You'll notice a distinct lack of parrallelism here—I know, I know, India is a whole country, while the rest of the places on the list are cities. Here's the deal, if I were to make a list of the top 10, 15, or even 20 cities for vegetarian eating, they'd all be in India, and I don't think that that's quite fair. India truly is a vegetarian paradise, and can be a vegan heaven with a little patience and fortitude. Obviously there are all the vegetarian classics, from channa masala to potato curry—but from the Portuguese infused flavours of Goan cuisine, to great pizza at beachside hippie hangouts, it's not just about the curry either.

Food Highlight: Yard long dosas served on the worlds biggest thali trays.

My Secret Favourite Thing:
The Calico Textile Museum in Ahmedabad might not make every itinerary, but it ought to. The giant wheel on India's flag? It's a spinning wheel, and this is both one of the best textile museums in the world, and a rare chance to learn about an artistic tradition at the heart of Indian identity.
