Has there ever been a better time to visit Thailand? Guided tour prices have recently dropped to as little as $36 per day, while the cost of independent travel can be even lower. In this week's CNN segment Pauline Frommer discusses:

  • The best and least expensive tours for Thailand in the coming months.
  • Nightlife issues, from safety in the seedier areas and clubs to attending Thai boxing matches.
  • The aggressive art of Thai massage.
  • The cuisine of Thailand and where best to learn to cook it yourself.

As always, the segment is illustrated with eye-popping photographs taken by CNN viewers. Please click the button to watch the 4- minute segment.
