How easy is it to get vegetarian food in Hoi An

It also depends on how strictly you enforce your vegetarianism. It can sometimes be a bit hard to tell when things like fish sauce are being used. If you’re extremely strict it will be more difficult, but still quite possible. You should check first that the food is not cooked in fish sauce. You also can tell the seller “no pork, no squide, no meat…etc.
It gets more difficult the further you travel outside the cities and tourist towns. You should do some researches before you go. Keep some vegetarian restaurants address in hand and ask your hotel to double confirm the address. Show it to taxi driver and then go.
