Thai Tuesday: Travel Journaling

For today’s Thai Tuesday, I’d simply like to share a handful of photos from various cities I visited on my Thai travels. Thailand is full of fresh produce, Buddhist traditions and powerful spices, and I rarely had difficulty finding vegan options. I currently remain on hiatus at my sister’s in Brooklyn, and our late night dinner plan is Pad Kee Mao with two different Chinatown gluten finds in a bit, so on-wards, photo essay, til we meet again.

  1. Since it’s relatively hard to relay (and expect) veganism in many American Thai places, I’m finding it surprising and refreshing that you had a seemingly easier time in Thailand.

    • It was such a fascinating surprise! With tourism being the #1 industry in Thailand and the influences of Buddhism and vegetarianism (not to mention Indian culture), it was possible to find options and exclusively-veg places in nearly every single large and medium sized city I visited, including restaurants, stands, mall food courts and market stalls. The only time I had an issue was in Udon Thani, and there were documented vegan-friendly locations – I simply was with my friend and her family and not seeking them out. I brought about 20 vegan bars and maybe ate 5 of them. I was semi-terrified going into this experience, and within a couple of days, my worries were gone.

  2. that snake sculpture is awesome!
    also, i wish we could see scale of those big bags of chips by you standing next to them. that would’ve been cute! :o)
