Thailand - from Golden Triangle to White Sands

From vibrant Bangkok Joseph travels south for a bit of rest and relaxation in the turquoise waters and on the fashionable beaches of the Krabi Peninsula. There he observes the ongoing efforts to preserve nature, indigenous cultures and ancient customs in the face of widespread tourism. After the short respite he heads north to the border of Thailand, Myanmar and Laos to continue his Thailand adventure in the infamous Golden Triangle. From a coffee, tea and macadamia nut plantation to a thriving elephant camp, he uncovers what Thais are doing to transform the Triangle's ancient opium production to pursuits that will improve the lives of the area's many Hill Tribe people.
