Phuket

Phuket is one of Thailand's major tourist areas.  We tried to run Sharon and Stephanie ragged with:

Chiang Mai

One of the ancient capitals of northern Siam, Chiang Mai kept us busy for a week, and we plan to back for more.  We tried:

Bangkok

Bangkok, capital for the last 250 years, has beautiful historical sites as well as traffic-clogged streets. We managed to see:

Wats (Buddhist Temples)

Elephants
