Hi There! We are back from our whirlwind adventure throughout Vietnam & Cambodia! As promised, I will highlight our favourite spots to eat & do my best to make it easy being vegan in a foreign land! To ensure this post isn’t too lengthy, I will only showcase the best of the best!
My absolute favourite thing about Vietnam & Cambodia was the wide range of juicy, colourful fruits! Due to the tropical climate, the fruit remains seasonal all year round and so refreshingly delicious on hot days.
VEGAN IN VIETNAM
Print this guide off and take it with you everywhere you go! We found that a lot of Vietnamese don’t understand what vegan means, presuming it is the same as vegetarian so this guide allowed us to point to ‘No Egg & ‘No Dairy.’
I would also like to thank Happy Cow! If you don’t have the app, make sure you download it. With one tap, you can find all the vegan friendly restaurants in your area which is super handy when navigating uncharted territory.

CRUELTY FREE IN CAMBODIA!
Unfortunately we didn’t have a translated guide for Cambodia so I just used Google Translate & pointed to the following pictures on my phone which worked a treat! It really helped the flow of communication!
I hope you enjoyed the yummy & colourful variety of vegan foods we discovered. As a vegan, I don’t ever want travelling to discourage anybody. There is so much help out there including blogs like mine & Happy Cow! Anybody can eat at the first restaurant they see but it is much more adventurous to pick up a map & seek out plant based restaurants. We ate with Buddhist Monks & families. We walked down hidden alleys & discovered tropical cafes & yoga studios. Don’t be afraid to travel anywhere!
PEACE & LOVE! xoxox
