Fellas, <BR>I went to Thailand in March 99, with two of my mates from uni, you MUST go to the North/Northeast (Nong Khai) <BR>It was brilliant, chilling out by the river etc. <BR>Bangkok is a Hell hole!! <BR>If you must stay there for a few nights, stay at the Asia, near Siam Square. <BR>If you want more info, e-mail me! <BR>When and where are you thinking on going? <BR> <BR>Lee

I'll let you know if it's a "hell hole" after this weekend, but, I doubt it. I'm sure it's not squeaky clean like Singapore, but then, that's part of the adventure. Now, Manila on the other hand....

Bangkok is far from a "hell hole". It is a city among cities. It is amazing to be in downtown Bangkok and just look around in amazement at the traffic, people, sights and sounds.I have traveled around the world, and Thailand was wonderful The culture, people and Buddist Temples were unforgetable. <BR>Like any thing, if you look for the worst in a place you can find it, but <BR>when you travel you need to leave your standards and values at home!

Hey Dudes, <BR> <BR>If I were a guy in my late 20s/early 30s, I wouldn't miss Pattaya, Thailand's infamous "City of Sin" (see "Beggar Goddess" travelogue on my Thailand travel page at www.VirtualTourist.com) and Koh Phang-Nga on a full moon. We're talking P-A-R-T-Y replete with magic mushroom smoothies. <BR> <BR>But all's not completely carefree in Paradise Found. Watch your backs for International Police who rumordedly stuff their files with polaroid snap-shots of unsuspecting party-goers. <BR> <BR>Sawasdee, <BR> <BR>zae
