Can I have vegetarian food and western food there ?
Yes, the vegetarian is widly available in these countries. Vegetables and vegetarian dishes feature prominently in Asian cuisine, though even vegetable dishes may use fish sauce as a base so if you are a strict Vegetarian it’s a good idea to ask about the ingredients used before. Western food is only available in big cities though is generally more expensive than local.

Yes, Generally we can accommodate special dietary requirements and allergies. However you need to give us the detail of your need, even non-seafood dishes may feature shrimp or fish sauce as a base so that we can give to the restaurant staff.

It is not necessary to avoid salads and herbs out of hand but remember uncooked foods do carry a greater risk.
