Travelers rank Bangkok, Thailand, high on the charts for many things. 

⭐ From giving 5 gold stars for the beau-Thai-ful Grand Palace

❤️ To giving lots of hearts for the appe-Thai-zing food

💯 To giving 100% for the pret-Thai Pak Khlong Flower Market

😊 To giving a smiley face for the friendly, recep-Thai’ve people (Thailand isn’t called the “land of smiles” for no reason)

👍👍 To giving two thumbs up for the feeling of sereni-Thai while watching temple dancers

To commemorate the great city of Bangkok, Traveler Tim wok’ed around the markets in search of high quali-Thai fabric. And what he found is very en-Thai-cing!

👏 To Tim, we give you a migh-Thai round of applause for this awesome fabric find!

Here’s to making most of the opportuni-Thai and to feeling good—because after all, it’s Friday!
