Anyone has experience in using these multicurrency cards in SEA countries? is it widely usable? what are the limitations?

I've used Youtrip before, although not for Vietnam and Myanmar so I've never tested it out for those 2 countries, whether most places accept cards etc. Although in my personal experience, Youtrip was accepted in places that allowed card payment, but I got logged out of Youtrip a couple of times while I was abroad. So it can be quite a hassle to get back in, especially if you aren't able to receive an SMS code to verify your account. I hope it helps! (:
As long as the merchant accepts mastercard, YouTrip will work! Youtrip supports up to more than 150 currencies, but ultimately the merchant would have to have the mastercard terminal for you to use the card as well. Personally, i've had no trouble using it in Malaysia, but i havent been to Vietnam or Myanmmar.

I was in Myanmar in September 2019, and more and more shops are accepting credit card payments and I also got tried using YouTrip! In major shopping centres in Yangon it should not be any issues, but if you are going to other areas, cash is still the king.
It's pretty alright, but they charge a fee for inactivity as well as for cash withdrawals.
Generally, I think Visa works better overseas as compared to Mastercard.
You can check out other cards, there's quite a number in the market at the moment.
For myself, I use Wirex which is a Visa card that came from the West. Recently travelled to countries like Thailand and Hong Kong, works well for me.
Yes, you are able to use YouTrip for both countries. In fact, YouTrip supports more than 150 currencies around the world: https://support.you.co/hc/en-us/articles/360000605034-How-many-currencies-are-supported-on-YouTrip-
