For instance, the Bali Vegan Festival typically hosted in Ubud, was adopted and celebrated this year in Canggu.
Canggu is an exciting mix of surfer-vegan vibes combined with an array of new, yet delicious, vegan options popping up every year. Some of the best up-and-coming vegan eateries in Canggu are:
Local Indonesian Vegan Food Packs a Tasty Punch
