This guesthouse, where I stayed, is right on the river, and is, of course, equipped with plenty of mosquito netting.

Thailand – Northeast Thailand is a fertile, mostly rural area. Here, this old temple is located among some lush rice paddies.

Thailand – Siam’s ancient capital of Ayutthaya allows visitors to witness the former era’s unique architecture in what remains of the many formerly grand buildings, sacked time and again by the invading Burmese armies
