Are you tired of trying to find foods that you can eat as a vegetarian or vegan while traveling in Thailand?
Who doesn’t know the feeling when you are hungry and suddenly there is this irresistible smell: a hint of fried garlic, exotic spices and some morning glory promising a mouth-watering feast! Full of joyful anticipation you locate the smell’s source… and see that meat is being cooked. What a bummer! Some fresh fruits will have to do it instead.
Of course Thailand has a lot to offer when it comes to fresh fruits, but Thailand is world-famous for its amazing food and as a vegetarian or vegan you shouldn’t have to miss out on that.
So what can you do?
The answer is simple: take a cooking class and cook your own Thai food!
