I was in Thailand for 10 days — four days in Bangkok, three days in Pataya city, which is literally a huge brothel, and the rest in Phuket and Ko Tapu island, known as “James Bond Island.” It was first featured in the movie “The Man with the Golden Gun” in 1974 with Roger Moore. The transsexual show in Bangkok was unbelievable. There was no way anyone would have guessed that the performers were actually men (with breast implants and all : )
It was the most beautiful country I have ever seen in my life (the Iranian hamvatans we toured with all claimed Thailand “ayne shomaleh!”). The food was absolutely amazing and the street vendors were very inexpensive. We also pretty much visited every temple in Bangkok. I would live in that county in a heartbeat.
