    AIS is the best sim card. If you don’t buy at the airport you can save nearly 750-800 bhat 

    Apps to use for travel in Thailand

    Grab(cab/bike) – costlier in bigger cities, cheaper in smaller cities
    Bolt(cab/bike) – cheaper in bigger cities, costlier in smaller cities
    PS: they are trying to acquire each others customer ha ha 

    Indrive(cab/bike) – cheaper but just supports cash payments for Thailand 
    12GoAsia –  you can book ferries, buses & vans here for internal transport in Thailand 

    Also check the prices with the hostel or local travel guys and do the basic comparison. Sometimes you can get cheaper options 

    Trip.com(flights) – I got really better deals for internal flight with good baggage allowances on Trip 

    Vegetarian food recommendation for Thailand

        • Fried Rice (Tofu/Vegetables )

        • Pineapple Fried Rice

        • Roti (Local Thai Pan Cake)

        • Mango Sticky Rice

        • Khao Soi

        • Falafel/Hummus Wrap 

        • Smoothie Bowls

        • Spring Rolls 

        • Lot of smoothie

        • Cheese toast/fruits/milk at 7 Eleven 

      Tops Daily/ Lotus Go have few more options for vegetarian snacks and salads than 7 Eleven. For healthy snacks I find Tops Daily to be more better than 7 Eleven 

      Additional Tips 

          • Tell for smoothies without sugar

          • Tell to make food without fish oil (palm oil)

          • You tell them to add tofu for your proteins

        Tips to search on Google Maps

        • Always search for vegan/vegetarian restaurant instead of top restaurant or food near me
        • Go to the review section and check the top rated dishes – if it’s vegetarian/vegan, less chance to get disappointed
