Dear Travelers,


Thailand has received a great deal of exposure and recognition in the U.S. market recently. The Condé Nast Traveler 2010 Readers' Choice Awards recently honored the Four Seasons Tented Camp Golden Triangle in Chiang Rai with first place on its list of Top 100. Bangkok and Chiang Mai were ranked as the #1 and #2 "Top Cities - Asia." Thailand's other properties and islands also won top honors in several categories. For more information, you can check out the Condé Nast Traveler website and its November 2010 issue. Additionally, Bangkok has been voted "Best International Business City" by Global Traveler's Tested Reader Survey Awards. The honor will be announced in the December issue.

It seems like the
perfect time to discover why Thailand is considered one of the best places in the world to visit. Experience it for yourself! For those of you who will be in Thailand this month, don't miss the world-renowned Grand Festival of Loi Krathong. This 'Festival of Lights" is one of the Kingdom's oldest and best-preserved traditions. Hundreds of thousands of ornately-decorated krathong, or traditional banana leaf floats, are set adrift in rivers and waterways in a spell-binding ritual. If you would like more information or Thailand vacation ideas, just dial 1-800-THAILAND or visit www.tourismthailand.org/la.


Warm Wishes,
