Thailand travel notes: "Eating vegetarian" in Thai is pronounced "Mang-Sa-Wi-Rat" [or "mung-sari-rud" for English speakers], though this term is not always easily understood by locals who speak only Thai. When some English is spoken at the restaurants, be sure to tell your server "no fish sauce," a very common ingredient in Thai cuisine.

Fish sauce is called "nam pla" ["num plah"]. "Gin che" ["kin jay"], a much more common expression for "eating vegetarian," conveys a stricter vegetarian diet--it means no eggs, onions, or garlic is consumed. The word for "MSG" is pronounced "phong chu rot" ["pong choo-rod"], though sometimes the word "Ajinomoto" (the most common brand of MSG) is better understood.

Excuse me. I am vegan. I do not eat any animal products, including meat, seafood, fish, fish stock, eggs, honey, or dairy products (such as milk, yogurt, butter, cheese, or mayonnaise). Thank you for your understanding.
