With so many Google pages of cooking classes in Bangkok, it took me some time to find good vegan ones and eventually pick one. I thought that I’d save you time and make a comprehensive list of vegan cooking classes in Bangkok here. I’ve also included on-vegan ones for those that aren’t vegan.
You Might Need To Explain Veganism
When contacting the schools that offer vegan/vegetarian as well as meat options you should explain veganism. This is not to be patronising to them and I mean it with no disrespect to the Thai people.
You would NOT believe how many places think vegans eat chicken or prawns. There are plenty of vegan options in Thai kitchens so don’t worry about not having enough ingredients to eat but it is a problem that they determine chicken to be vegan.
NO meat, NO chicken, NO fish, NO prawns/shrimp, No eggs or milk.
Don’t Care About Vegan Classes

Where To Stay In Bangkok
Getting around Bangkok is easy so it might not matter where you stay. Use this interactive map to search for accommodation in Bangkok.
We stayed in this serviced apartment with a rooftop pool. I really recommend finding somewhere with a pool because the heat is quite draining and for kids, it gives them something to do and look forward to.
