Help me!

Hey Y'all!

I am a traveler I stay in countries for about a year at a time and I am a vegetarian and soon to be vegan. I am a teen also!

I am in HK at this time and i am so overwhelmed I cant read most of the labels since they are in Chinese. Do you guys have any tips for traveling in non English speaking countries and being a vegan.

Please Help me ASAP.

Thank you xx

Welcome to Veggieboards!

HappyCow is a great resource to help you find vegan food in any country, here are some vegan and vegetarian restaurants in Hong Kong: https://www.happycow.net/asia/china/hong_kong/

I also found this guide that looks useful, I hope it helps: https://theculturetrip.com/asia/hong...-in-hong-kong/

If you eat lotsa whole foods like fruits and veggies then you won't have to worry about the labels?

That certainly would be challenging, buying processed food in a foreign country so Werewolf's Happy Cow app is a great approach as they have restaurants and stores.

good luck, Emma JC

Hi Earthly warrior,

Werewolf Girl's recommendation about http://www.happycow.net is excellent. You can find vegetarian/vegan restaurants, cafes, and shops, all over the world, using Happy Cow.

Some Buddhist temples also serve vegetarian (though not always vegan) lunches. These should be listed in Happy Cow, also.

HappyCow doesn't work that well abroad. I'm in the same shoes now (about a year in each country) and so far HappyCow has shown me two restaurants, and one was closed.

Google Translate's app has a feature where you can take a picture of text and get a rough (very!) translation. I usually stick to buying "ingredients" like grains/legumes, nuts, fruits, veggies, etc.

Also, frozen veggies are your friend.

Good luck!
