One of the best ways to find great food while travelling is to go out and discover what’s on offer- especially when you’re in places with delicious food like South East Asia.

Chatting with the locals and just randomly trying exotic foods can be an adventure in itself and something I highly recommend.

Plus asking locals for their recommendations can be an easy way to make friends and learn more about the culture while you’re there. They’ll often have you trying stuff you never would have considered, or had no idea how to even order!

That’s the way I found laksa (a noodle soup from Malaysia) and gaeng daeng (real red curry from Thailand) – two of my most favorite dishes that I ended up ordering regularly when I was visiting both countries.

Every single country has it’s own unique cuisine on offer, and some have more options than others especially if you’re fussy.

So what ways can you find great food while travelling – whether you’re a carnivore, vegetarian, or a vegan?

Well in this fun video, aside from stuffing my face with dumplings I share my two top tips for finding great food on the road, plus what to do to avoid getting hungry and with no food options in sight.
