      I understand that the Raffles Hotel cocktail list is quite pricey and as I literally have one night to find myself a Singapore Sling when I land in May before flying out the next morning, is there anywhere someone would really recommend, that might be a little off the beaten path but completely worth it!

      I'm about to spend 2-3 days in Sapa at very end of February, planning some trekking with home stay. I was just wondering about how cold could it get to decide which kind of clothes to bring and also if you would recommend high trekking boots or just trekking shoes would be sufficient for the paths around - this is meant for medium trekking, nothing too challenging.

      King's Burial

      Bangkok Jan 23, 2017 at 3:26 PM

      I was told that the king is about to be buried or cremated this or next week. Is this true? I also heard everyone must wear dark, black, clothes to show respect to the king? So how far is this going? I am sure we will need to dress appropriately at the grand palace, but the travel tour leader that we talked to by phone said respectful clothes are required throughout Thailand. In the past, tourist areas were exempt from this. What places are covered by this? Thanks!
