This is my first article in MyGuide.pt. And what better way to start than talking about one of the trips of my life! Amazing Thailand!
For those who have never been, it is HIGHLY recomendadíssimo (by me :) and my better half) ...
Thailand is a unique country, the diversity, the sincere sympathy of the people, by the modernity of his great metropolis Bangkok, for all its cultural richness, for all its rich cuisine, and finally the famous "brands" that buy at bargain prices!
Too bad it has become more famous for sex tourism, which is "every corner", but the "Amazing Thailand" (as is their slogan) is much more than that!
The first experience when entering the plane in Madrid, the Thai Airlines (Thay Airways) is fantastic! All (the) the (the) flight attendants dressed up with colors that mark Thailand, even in economy class (my class :)) is fantastic, the 12-hour flight between Madrid and Bangkok are at a glance. It is much less tiring than the 7-8 hour flight to the Caribbean.
Everything is thought to detail, even in the toilet of the fantastic Boeing 747 (Jumbo) have cologne for passengers! For the first time I did a flight where I reached the end "cool or a lettuce."
Then followed a short trip on a domestic flight from Bangkok to Krabi!
And then began the dream! The choice of hotel could not be better! The Amari Vogue Krabi is a small resort of charm, with a level of quality, friendliness, decor, food ... I've never seen in the many hotel nunhum I went through!
The one day tour by speed boat to the islands of Phi-Phi is fantastic! The landscape is "breathtaking" that is so beautiful!
The small village of Hao-Nang, near Krabi, is the best! I do not know how much people have, but should not be more than 3000, and has a variety of restaurants and shops that are 2 or 3 days at no cost!
Then it was the opposite route, Krabi-Bangkok, arrived in Bangkok, still in the air, could not believe what I was seeing! The city is so big it almost lost sight of.
A variety of culture is immense.
Strongly advise you to do a walk through their channels, or Bangkok was not the Venice of Asia! Although the water is very dirty, it's a heavenly ride.
If you are thinking of going there and want to know more, feel free to ask! I'll be happy to help.
Greetings to all who have the patience to read this article.

The government legalises casinos
"WE WANT Singapore to have the X-factor, that buzz that you get in London, Paris, or New York." That is how Lee Hsien Loong, Singapore's prime minister, announced his government's decision to legalise gambling in the country, in the form of two larg...os on a new council it is setting up to combat the ill-effects of gambling. But Mr Fong, for one, says he is not interested in helping the authorities clean up a mess of their own making. Instead, he wants to pursue his campaign. Some FACTS supporters are even urging him to convene a public demonstration; but, given the government's authoritarian instincts, he says, that is too much of a gamble.

Different destinations seem to specialize in different treatments. Costa Rica is known for dentistry while Brazil is popul...ix doctors in the U.S. is an Indian. A third consideration has to do with language. English is spoken in Indian hospitals.
To further attract medical tourism to Malaysia from neighboring Thailand and Singapore, the Malaysian government has been cracking down on so-called "fake hospitals." Recently six healthcare centers allegedly run by phony doctors have been closed down.
