  • You enjoy the bittersweet taste of the world-famous, sophisticated cuisine
  • You want to get a suntan in a beach paradise
  • You're organizing your first trip to South East Asia
  • You enjoy traveling in a safe, secure environment with a good standard of comfort
  • You're looking for a destination where the prices are low
  • You dream of discovering Bangkok, the craziest of all of Asia's vast urban areas

You shouldn't go if

  • You don't like crowds
  • You think the destination is too touristy
  • You don't have at least three weeks to spend exploring
