Thailand is an exotic country full of magic and excitement. The city of Bangkok is a busy maze of storefronts and tempting restaurants. The Royal Palace is one of the most amazing places you'll ever visit - a visual feast of artist ornamentation, screaming colors, and brilliant gold. In contrast to the Palace are the crowded markets featuring everything from fine jewelry to lethal snakes. Outside the city you'll discover friendly villagers and traditional Thai customs. Hit Chang Mai to go elephant trekking in the jungle. You may be offered a unique opportunity: to lie on the ground while elephants walk over you for 'good luck.'
