Thailand is a perfect destination for sunny Australians - it's not too far away, it's exotic, the weather is warm and balmy and it's good value for money. Along the coast five star resorts are plentiful and for those of us who are more adventurous they are rustic beach huts right on the sand that cost next to nothing. Personally, these days, I'm more of a five star kinda girl! Thai food is one of my favourites - hot, spicy and full of flavour. The Thai peope are gentle and friendly and the scenery is simply stunning. Lushly vegetated, jagged rock formations pop out of emerald coloured waters that simply take your breath away!
