I missed an equivalent of two days in Bangkok due to cancelled flight at Tokyo Narita, I managed to stay in Tokyo for one day. After arriving in the middle of night in Bangkok, I was a bit shocked about how messy the city looked compared to Kuala Lumpur, but the Bangkok’s limo services wasn’t too bad. Unfortunately, the sad faces of these abandoned dogs have depressed me dearly.
It was difficult to find vegan cuisine in Bangkok, because I only have one day to experience Bangkok unfortunately. But the hotel I stayed (Four Seasons Bangkok) had a breakfast buffet and I already had food accommodations with them in advance (within 2 weeks prior to arrival), which was fortunate. The culinary staff was perfect about it, and ensured that all my vegan dishes were to be made strictly vegan, plus if they tasted good enough for my standards. They were very responsive to my vegan needs and I was really happy with them.
Dishes from the start from Day 1 Breakfast and Day 2 Breakfast:
- Fresh fruits (pomelo, watermelon, papaya, pineapple with dried kiwi and strawberries)
- Congee soup with cilantro, Thai red peppers, peanuts, pickled vegetables and sour soy sauce
- Fresh soy milk (tasted more authentic than these in America who preferred bland ones)
- Freshly sliced French bread (imported)
- Pad Kee Mao (wide Thai noodles with tofu and vegetables)
- Pomelo Salad
- Carrot and Apple Slaw Salad
- Thai Fried Rice (a bit salty for my taste)
