    I’m surprised to see Thailand on the list. I’ve been there about 25 times (I’ve been a strict veg since age 12), and it’s often been a challenge finding true veg-friendly food. Almost all dishes–in my limited experience–are made with fish sauce…much like we would use salt here in America. This “hidden” meat might not bother some types of vegetarians, certainly would not bother people who don’t eat meat but do eat fish, but definitely limited my choices on my travels within Thailand.

    On the other hand, I was pleased to see Malaysia and Singapore on the list. I found it much easier to find veg food in both places (not surprising in Singapore, due to the huge Indian population and culinary influence).

    I would put Taiwan and Sri Lanka way before Thailand and Ethiopia. I go to Bangkok and beyond every year for decades and you have to go to special restaurants (often not the most delicious, although I do recommend MAY KAIDEE in the tourist ghetto near Khao Sarn Rd area, behind Burger King, which last time I checked, also has a veggie burger).

    Ethiopia was a big disappointment. I was in the capital Addis Ababa in 2014 October and it was very difficult to find the traditional injeera bread and other vegetarian foods, even on fasting days.

    Taiwanese Buddhists (i.e. Mahayana) are generally vegetarians, certainly the monks are. And although as in Thailand they are special restaurants, they are obiquitous. Some have fantasically delicious assortments such as MINDER on the second floor of Taipei Central Station (sign only in Chinese). Buffets by the 100 gms.

    Full disclosure: I have never been to Sri Lanka, but a vegetarian friend whose opinion I trust said it is paradise for basic and cheap veg food (unlike Taiwan, where it is fancy and moderately priced).

    Problem is with reports of this nature (i.e. on commercial sites) is that they are often NOT written by people who have been or who care. I think they research online instead in real life eperience. For example, writing about the Hindu and Buddhist vegetarian connection. While it is true that many Indian Hindus are pure veg it is usually the middle and upper classes, Brahmins, and Vaishnavas (a sectarian division). If you want a direct connection, go to Gujarat in India, maybe Mumbai also – where there is a large JAIN population. Hinduism as a whole does not demand vegtarianism. In fact there are some sects (i.e. some Shaktas) who sacrifice goats as Mulsims do. Buddhists are vegetarian? WRONG. Just ask the Supreme Patriarch of the Theravada Buddhist clergy in Thailand or the Dalai Lama.

    Only Jainism, as a world religion, advocates vegetarianism.
