Vegetarian breakfast in Bangkok : How someone made me overwhelmed!

Posted by


Last night I stayed at a CouchSurfer’s place in Rachatewi
His house is somewhere there.. across these trees
Thats the BTS on the elevated track
Now I am going to have my breakfast, because its already 9.30 AM
I am searching for a Supermarket or an ordinary market
I want to purchase fruits like Banana or something similar
I have to cross the road
I just saw something to eat
these are watermelons, but I don’t like them
and this is something (non-vegetarian), which I can not eat
I think I have found the market now
There are few shops on my right and left side
but this isn’t what I was expecting!
I wanted Bananas, Oranges, Guava, etc..
But I think they are not available here
ok…. I’ll go ahead and search
Yes, now I have reached the place which I was searching for
I think, i should see the market before getting the Bananas
The smell of Non-Vegetarian food here is terrible!
I think I should go back
I am hungry.. energy level is also getting low
So, going back to get the breakfast first
later on, I’ll explore the market
I couldn’t purchase anything from the market
So, I am back to the ‘7 Eleven’ store
Here One banana costs 8 Baht, that is 16 Indian Rupees, which is very costlier than India..
but I am hungry, so I am going to purchase things from here
From this store, I have purchased- Bread, Banana & Cheese
so this what I am going to have in my breakfast
Now I am going to sit somewhere to have it
I have got my water bottle refilled, As I don’t like to purchase drinking water bottles
khap khun krap (Thank you)
You can get groceries and other things from stores like ‘Seven Eleven’
They are almost everywhere in the big cities in Thailand
and this is how the non-touristy Bangkok looks! An ordinary street of Bangkok
I am starving!
It is 10:30 AM and I haven’t ate anything till now
While walking on the street I was asking people for a place to sit and have my breakfast
maybe a park or a public place ..
But I couldn’t get any..
So, I just sat down in front of a store to have my breakfast
I am having a Banana and few slices of the whole wheat bread
Its not easy to travel for vegetarian budget travellers
and in my case..
(1) I am a vegetarian, (2) Also a budget traveller (3) I have also lost my wallet…
I couldn’t afford to eat at a restaurant
Let me share something which I learnt while travelling.
Do not hesitate to ask people for help
I was at the ‘7 Eleven’ store few minutes back ..
I asked them for refilling my water bottle. They initially thought that I need mineral water ..
But then I asked, Is it possible to get free water.. I am carrying a bottle.
I took help from ‘Google Translate’ mobile app for English to Thai translation..
..so that they could understand what exactly I need
They eventually understood .. and helped me
and again.. while I was looking for a space to sit and have my breakfast
I asked people for help
People were very kind and helping
I asked for the permission from the store owner
Now I have got their permission to sit here and have breakfast
Khap khun krap
So.. never hesitate to ask for help
I believe, generally people are good and helpful all over the world
wow! the store owner has just offered me a stool to sit and have breakfast comfortably 🙂
Thanks to the owner 🙂
ahh! Now I am stuffed
I have packed the remaining bread and other stuff inside the bag.
This is waste
This is what I love the most while travelling..
when strangers come to you to offer their help
I am really touched by their gesture 🙂
How would you feel when you get a ‘selfless help’ from a stranger!
I am really overwhelmed !

  10. Bangkok for indian it's thukai but actually it's more than sex place it's nicest country with jungles and cultures

  11. Nice video.. So sorry you lost your wallet… I had heard vegetarian have difficulty in going foreign and explore in low budget.

  12. Buddy I understand that we wish to travel on budget but eating bread and cheese only as standalone hunger satisfying meal is neither good for your gut and well-being. I usually don't trust over the counter milk products because it is fully industrialized and contain pathogens and deadly viruses. I would rather make do with sliced vegatables sandwiches between breads that both satisfy my guy and keep me away from Dairy borne viruses. Just an advice I wanted to share. But I understand it's not always possible but it can't be done all the time

  13. Last year,I visited (Nakhon Ratchasima) for conference .After i visited Bangkok. Most of the places i learn from u r videos about Bangkok. Thai peoples are very good.

  14. Hi Varun ,I like your videos ,I am also veggy ,you inspire us to travel alone.
    Please show your camera stick ,it must be tiring to hold it for long.

  15. Sir mai aapke sab video dekhta hu
    Mere KO Bhi aapke sath aana hai kya muje leke ja sakte ho I'm big fan ye mera WhatsApp number hai 8070478710

  16. though your videos are educative but ur issue abt naashte ka intezaam nhi ho rhia abt fruits didnt go well..7/11 are at every hook n corner n moreover fruit vendors exist at every 100 mtrs in bangkok …thanks

  17. Duniya bhar me hum jab travel karte hai to sabhi khushise indians ki madad karte hai.. Lekin india me jab bahar ke tourists ate hai to hum unko fasate jaroor hai.. India sabko pasand hai per log ane ke liye darte hai.. Truth..

  18. Sir me 30 march to 5 April thailand me rahunga me apni trip decide nahi kar pa raha i mena phle me bangkok jau ya pattaya ya fir Ayutthaya?

  19. It's 1:03 AM for me I have to sleep. YouTube be like 12:40 oh here I got a good content for you. You have lots of it, bro. keep it up. New Sub 👍

  20. I liked the video. I also liked your dislike of animal food but sadly eating milk products does not stop their abuse, rape and murder. Please consider going vegan.

  21. वरूण जी आप जैसा इंसान मिलना बहुत मुश्किल है।👏👏🙏🙏👍👍
