BANGKOK - THE AMAZING THAILAND

I have always been hesitant to visit war memorials, mainly because I find them intensely depressing and a sobering place, but my trip to River Kwai Elephant and Rafting Adventure was an eye opener and I really appreciated learning about the lives of prisoners of war.

I first visited Thailand in summer of 1979 with my parents and my sister. Subsequent trips were either city tours with a few gourmet fanatics, on business trips or taking a detour to visit my god-brother living in Bangkok. Most times, it is simply a transit to some place else into the Indo-China region. I have never had the opportunity to truly visit this country of plenty.
