We head to Malaysia and Vietnam for our family vacation, this year. Two very different countries in more than one way. Malaysia is more developed; landscape is different, and holds a mix of cultures, from Chinese to Muslims, Indians and native Malays. While Vietnam is diverse and full of history. People here mainly follow Buddhism. The food in both Malaysia and Vietnam is great, provided you are a non-vegetarian. Vegetarians don’t have much of a choice, but that shouldn’t discourage you from visiting any of these places. This was my first international trip, post turning a vegetarian and I not only survived, but had a fabulous time.
