Subject: Re: visiting Thailand
Hi Angie, I haven't been to Thailand for 7 or 8 years, so I can't comment on safety relative to the border wars. Re Chinese-style clothing, I had much better luck in Hong Kong (which may not even be an option for you). It's an easy stopping point prior to Bangkok. But in Bangkok, if you will be there several days, you can have anything you want tailor-made in a very short time with your own selection of fabric. My favorite, best-fitting slacks were made there at a price I'd pay off the rack in the States. Wish I'd had a lot more made. The shops in the mall on the River near the Sheraton were where I had mine made. Hope this helps. Lou/Lakeway, TX
