Flights to Bangkok-witness elephant rescue first hand

does this look comfortable?

The good thing about getting on a flight to Bangkok and entering an exotic city and incredible countryside is that you are completely transported. The bad thing is you sometimes lose your common sense. If you would have asked tourists ten years ago what was the highlight of their trip to Thailand, many would have answered elephant ride in Chang Mai. I, too, would have answered the same.

Manila is quickly becoming the capital of cosmetic rejuvenation. And it’s more than just that flights to Manila are cheap. It’s their cutting edge hospitals and well-trained nurses¬† (which make up most of the US staff of nurses as well) that make¬† Manila so attractive to so many. Americans and Asians with a two-week holiday are booking cheap flights to Manila not just to lay by the pool but to enter one of these facilities, get a quick operation and then be whisked back to a luxury hotel where they … More…
