What's coming up in December ...

Wow, December already ... and I can already feel the streets are busier around Bangkok and Chiang Mai at the moment, and my flight the other day was standing-room only! It can only mean one thing: the high season.

So what stories are in store for Jing Jing readers this month?

* We're moving on from Samui to the north ... Doi Mae Salong, a very charming Chinese town on the Thai-Burmese border. We'll be off-road motorbiking, as well as eating beautiful French pastries in one of the coolest cafes I know, and checking out fascinating stories of Chinese war generals and renowned drug lord, Khun Sa.

* Therd Thai and Doi Hua Mae Kum annual Bua Tong festival, where dozens of different hilltribes gather for song and dance amid the blooming sunflowers.

* The Loy Krathong Light and Sound Show spectacle at Sukhothai ... wait till you see my pics from that.

* And the Yee Peng Khum Loy festival in San Sai, Chiang Mai, in which thousands of glowing lanterns are released. One of the most amazing things I've seen -- and felt -- in my life, jing jing!

So, enjoy December and look out for those stories.

Cheers, Stu.
