Readers don't be shy. Share your dream destination. I just heard of Surin Beach in Thailand. It was not damaged by the tsunami. The film showed a sunny place complete with swaying palms. What a destination to take a break! Southeast Asia Editor <img src="/images/graemlins/fish.gif" alt="" />

I have been to every country in Asia, Southeast Asia as well as India. My favourite spot for a holiday is Thailand! It is a diverse country that is the same distance from top to bottom as Seattle to San Diego.
There are mountains, plains, and of course the seaside. Each area has a different cuisine as well. Issan, the plains area of Northeast Thailand has fabulous snack or as they are called drink-foods. The south of Thailand cuisine includes a lot of seafood and quite spicy curries, some with a hint of Indian influence.
No matter where you decide to travel in Thailand you will encounter a wonderful culture, gorgeous scenery, and wonderful food.

Mary Anne what was your favorite place in Thailand and why? Do you or anyone else have suggestions for the reader who is planning a Thai trip this November? Be kind give her some suggestions and why the place is great!
I'd love to go to Thailand and also to see Angkor Wat in Cambodia. I never thought about Cambodia until I saw the show "1000 places to see before you die" on the Travel Channel. That show is great. I wish they had traveled to more places in the book.
