They’re always happy, always smiling, extremely polite, and always helpful.They’ll help you out if you’re in trouble and help translate for you if you can’t speak Thai.Though I wonder how you can pick a favorite country. No country is really better than another, just different. Two Britons are thought to be among seven people who were killed when a light aircraft crashed in the Punta Cana region of the Dominican Republic today.Not a bad deal and not a bad way to spend the weekend.The postcard-perfect tropical islands I love the beach.They may not be the wild and untamed jungles of some places in Borneo or the middle of Africa, but they still offer amazing views, dense forests, waterfalls to cool off in, and an interesting variety of wildlife. It wasn’t until I moved there that I fell in love with it. There’s lots to do, plenty of events, great bars, and amazing food (see above), and it’s easy to get around (except during rush hour).The international environment Thailand is a country where you can get as local or foreign as you like. I love cities where there’s always something to do.
From the jungles and elephants in Khao Yai National Park, to the famed lake of Khao Sok in the south, to the famous jungle and hill tribe treks near Chiang Mai, you can get your tropical jungle fix very easily here. The women here are just stunning, with beautiful skin and exotic looks. Bangkok I hated Bangkok the first few times I traveled there.The plane had taken off from Punta Cana International Airport to fly to Arroyo Barril , some 130km away.The plane (above) was owned by private firm Sky High Aviation Services and had a registration number of HI-957 It is believed the pilot was attempting to make an emergency landing after taking off from Punta Cana when the plane struck the ground in a golf course and burst into flames.And you can get to many of these destinations cheap.I’m heading to Singapore tomorrow for four days, and it only cost me 0 USD round-trip on Tiger Airways.
