Managing a food intolerance/dietary requirement when travelling can be a real added stress, and in some cases, it could put you off travelling to a certain place altogether. Well I am here to help! I have had many people ask me about the food where I’ve been travelling, and immediately dismiss going to see it for themselves in fear that they will starve the entire time. In response, I write this post for all of you dairy-free/celiac/vegetarian and vegan people out there and deliver the great news that Vietnam’s cuisine naturally has lots to offer for us free-from foodies!
Vietnam was the first destination along my five-week backpacking tour of Southeast Asia last month. I touched down in Ha Noi and was immediately swept away by the rich culture and history to discover in this country.
