"This has to be the most amazing place to visit says Jackie"
 
Wehart Chamrun Residential Hall,
Bang Pa-in, Ayutthaya.
 
I cannot tell you  much about this place

  1. Fabulous selection of cards to add to your collection. We have been to Singapore twice, but yes it is not cheap! Never been to Vietnam but yes have been to Australia. The only part of Thailand we have been to is Phuket and it was the best holiday we have ever had. Keep well and warm, the weather is about to warm up for a bit. Diane xox
