    Traveling to Thailand

    I am going to be traveling to Thailand for work for about 3 weeks. I leave tomorrow. Does anyone have some places that I should check out? I am not sure how much time I will have to do any sightseeing, but don't want to miss out on any of the "must see" places. I hope my trip doesn't turn out to be like the Hangover Part II!

    Re: Traveling to Thailand

    I have two buddies with Thai wives so they have been there a few times. My buddies say that in their experience Phuket is the most beautiful place on the planet.

    That must have cost a pretty penny, I would have gone Russian, personally, maybe Czech Republic if you find a good mail order service.

    Re: Traveling to Thailand

    For some reason Thailand has always interested me. Love the food.

    Could you post a bit about your experience when you get back?

    Re: Traveling to Thailand

    Hey, everybody. Here's some fun facts. The population of Thailand is sixty three million people. It is twice the size of Wyoming. It's chief exports are textiles, footwear and rice. Each year, approximately thirteen thousand people are killed in car accidents in Thailand. The climate in Thailand...

    +1.

    My quote was a little too inappropriate I guess.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    EDIT: In case anyone is wondering, it is pronounced <foo-KET>.
    Isn't it Poo-ket?

    Russian is best. They are more appreciative.

    Yeah, you are right. It's POO-ket.

    Wait until I tell my buddy who has dove there that he has been pronouncing it wrong.

    Re: Traveling to Thailand

    Ko Phi Phi and Railay Bay are awesome and near phuket. Chang mai is full of hippy backpacker types but beautiful. Bandgkok has great food, temples, thai boxing arenas, and if you have flexible morals there are plenty of girls and trannys to be had. Pm me if you need specifics on the dark side.
