Bangkok Thailand

I first went to Thailand in November 1989, after a trip to India.  Compared to the poverty of India, Thailand was a whole new experience!   Lots of sun, friendly people, good food, beautiful beaches.  I stayed at the wonderful Oriental Hotel in Bangkok - I've been back many times since.
