We last visited Thailand ten years ago. It was the trip of a lifetime and we were thrilled to return. The countryside is beautiful, the cities – especially Bangkok – have a vibrancy and 24/7 buzz that’s just electric. But what makes most visitors fall in love with Thailand are the people. They must surely rank as the friendliest nation on Earth. No wonder Thailand is called ‘The Land of Smiles.’
Our destination was the area affectionately known as “The Parks”. Roughly encompassing Parkhurst, Parktown North, Parkview and Parkwood, the suburbs are a veritable urban forest. Whatever you enjoy doing, you’ll find it here – restaurants, art galleries and interesting shops abound.
