Thailand is an Asian destination that keeps on giving. I have visited three times and would happily return.
Beyond the bright lights of Bangkok is the ancient capital of Ayutthaya and the temple-laden town of Chiang Mai in the northern highlands. Hedonists and sun seekers head to Thailand’s idyllic islands.
And don’t get me started on the food.
