Bewitching Thailand Part 1: An Adventure to the Land of Smiles

I have to admit that while Africa has my heart, Thailand remains my favorite overall country with its overwhelming hospitality, fascinating culture, mind-blowing (sometimes mouth-burning!) cuisine and great shopping and nightlife. A simple and affordable hour’s flight from Bangkok grants access to some of the best beaches on the planet to the south and the lush jungles of Chiang Mai and the Golden Triangle to the north. Thailand is a delight for the senses and never fails to disappoint even the most seasoned of travelers.  This is a place you want to visit again and again. Whether you’re after an activity-based holiday or desire some serious pampering with some exquisite cuisine, Thailand provides it all in abundance, along with everything else in-between that you can or cannot imagine!

My adventure began in Bangkok aka “The City of Angels”.  Yes-it is a really, really long flight.  With the 12 hour time change, Atlanta to Tokyo to Bangkok can set you back two days.  However, once you land in this tropical metropolis, you will be rewarded with a magical feast for the senses.  From the dazzling visual array of the orchid flower markets, saffron-robed monks, ancient gilded temples and bright pink taxis to the heady fragrances of bustling street vendors hawking sweet sticky mango rice and frying spicy chiles, you will know you that you have landed in an extraordinary city.
