Thread Details

so I've heard that India is great and I know that Taiwan is great too from personal experience.

what would people recommend and are there good travel blogs for a traveler like me? my wife eats anything and I'm an ovo-lacto (eggs dairy ok) vegetarian. we'd like to travel without needing to worry too much about needing to look extensively for options.

OP, the good news is that 21st century travel and globalization have made dietary restrictions much much easier to accommodate. In the last 12 months, trips to South Korea, Hungary and Finland/Estonia all had vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free selections and/or entire restaurants in the major metropolitan areas. Now, if your travel style is more nomadic and outside the major cities, more careful planning is required as the "drop in the first place we see" doesn't always work.

I find Chowhound to be an excellent source of community info - ignore the Michelin star chasers and you will find a lot of good information there. They have specific country boards as well, but start here with their Veggie/Vegan board:

Sounds like you may already be familiar, but if you are strict ovo-lacto, you will still want to ask at restaurants in SE and Eastern Asian countries as many vegetable based dishes still have seafood as an ingredient (e.g. shrimp, anchovy, clams). Having said that, India and Thailand as you mentioned are both excellent choices. South Korea and Japan as well offer vegetables in ways we Americans have never tasted them before. And a really good Korean soon-dubu tofu soup will knock your socks off!

Keep us updated on your research - always exciting to plan a big trip!

I'll suggest you India. In India, you will find a variety of foods and specially for vegetarian. 31% of Indians are 'vegetarian', while another 9% also consume eggs-milk (ovo-vegetarian) like you. So I think India is perfect for you.
