Yes, I have been about 3 or 4 times.
I no longer would want to go there -once we went to a club Med type place (where I got a very rare strain of hook worm), been to Bankgok a few times, though do not particularly like such busy places.
by Finy
Yes. We went once. When we were there we went to Chiang Mai, Bangkok and Phuket. We had a great time. My favourite place was Chiang Mai
by AJ
ah, yes I forgot about phuket -used to be nice there...went on my honeymoon...probably conveniently forgot!
by Finy
No, and I don't intend on going. I know we have human rights abuses here too, but I cannot visit a country which supports and enforces capital punishment.
by Vee
Yes I have and enjoyed the holiday, however would not go there again, would go somewhere different
by Fran
Yes, Sept, 2002, with my husband & youngest daughter. They’d been before, but I hadn’t. My daughter & stayed for 10 days, but my husband got sick of being there after 5 days, & went home. he got off the flight, & walked straight into work after collecting his luggage!
Yes, on honeymoon, Bangkok.
My cousin & her husband were posted there in Austn Army. Caught up with them.

Didn't like it at all.
Like Manila, would never go back.

Singapore & Penang, are my two faves of SE Asia only.
Donjo, Did you go to the orchid gardens inside the Botanic Gardens in Singapore?The orchid garden part is only $1 for seniors! (Younger people pay $5 to go in.) We were there at the end of July 2017. We were there for around about 2hrs, looking & photographing the beautiful orchids. When we sat down for a 5 min rest, we saw a tiny monkey running around on a small tree. We've now seen monkeys in 5 countries! Did you go to Jim Thompson house, garden & little shop filled with all things silk, while you were in Bangkok?

No,I have not been there.I have seen many stunning photos taken by friends who have been to Thailand,but when they described many of the issues which are faced there on a daily basis,it took the shine from any temptation I had to go .
It is a beautiful country and people are so nice.
I love their culture and will go again.

Finy, you seem to love asking questions where the answer lands somewhere on my bucketlist! I have never been to Thailand, but I certainly want to go one day. I love learning about other cultures, and I absolutely love Thai cuisine.
Yes I have. 2 times.
My lover and I can't get enough of Thailand fantastic place for the two of us to enjoy ourselves
no never been there
No, previously this was because the opportunity did not present itself. Now I am less motivated to go and I can't actually give a definitive reason as to why my mindset has changed. Will need to get back to you on that one.
Shelley, have you been there yet, OR somewhere else? It's stinking hot there!
by Miro
No. No intention of going ever.
Don't like the "ways" of Indonesia
Fran, question was asked of Thailand. What's Indonesia got to do with it? Lol!
by donjo
Sorry about the ignorant reply Donjo - I thought Thailand was Indonesian Island. But, no I don't want to go there.

I went to Thailand in the 1980's. It was very interesting as the was very little Western influence in their history. Very different to Singapore and Hong Kong.
I go to Thailand usually once a year. The North of Thailand is really interesting. Bangkok is fantastic. The shopping, both markets & the more upmarket shopping centres have such a great variety of goods - better than anywhere in Australia. And as for the food - it is fantastic. Such a wonderful range of restaurants & cuisines. Even the food halls in shopping centres have to be seen to be believed. And anywhere you can get an hour foot massage for about $12 has got to be good.
No, and I don't want to go. Had a layover there on our way to Europe and didn't like the guys with machine guns posted throughout the airport. Made me feel I couldn't sneeze without drawing attention.
Same has happened to me, whilst transiting the Airports of:
Karachi, Calcutta, Bombay, New Delhi, Teheran, Athens, Bangkok, Bahrain, Manila, & Seoul.
AND that was in the '70's!
Can't even imagine what they'd be like THESE days!

At least now only have one port, Abu Dhabi, to transit now, enroute London!
by donjo
All those places you listed have been on my "don't ever want to visit" list for years so I'd imagine not much changed.
by helga
No, and I am not really interested in going there.
I have never been to Thailand but Phuket, Bangkok and Chang Mai are some of the places I intend to visit hopefully towards the end of spring. When it comes to pristine beaches, unique delicacies and historical spots, Thailand is one of the top countries travellers must add to their bucket list.

I don't know why people think Thailand enforces capital punishment. Its crime rate is relatively low compared to the crime rates of developed countries. People need to get their facts straight before judging this country. It's different what you see and read through the media and when you really step foot on the country's soil.
I've always wanted to go to Thailand for the cultural experience and the food. I don't like the hot weather though and turn into a different character. Ill just wait for their winter
