Travelling when you don’t eat meat can be challenging, but there are some countries that make delicious destinations for the herbivores among us – and a new ranking proves it.

Compiled by the folks over at Oliver’s Travels, the Global Vegetarian Index ranks 183 countries by their per-capital meat consumption and the number of vegetarian restaurants compared with their population.

Thanks to its low meat consumption, plentiful vegetarian restaurants and comparably small population, the Seychelles took out the top spot, with Thailand and Malaysia coming in second and third respectively. Scroll down to see which other countries made the top 10.
