Today’s post is part of a weekly series called “Travel Toss-Up,” in which we ask you to take your pick between two amazing travel experiences.

This week’s toss-up offers a choice of two “solid gold” destinations.

Would you rather…

… explore Buddhist temples in Thailand, or …

wat phra that doi suthep, chiang mai



… lie on a stretch of golden sand in St. Lucia?

st lucia beach


The Buddhist temple pictured above is Wat Phra That Doi Suthep in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and it dates all the way back to the 1300s. Located on a mountain, it offers sweeping views of Chiang Mai. St. Lucia is home to a number of lovely beaches, including some with views of its famous Twin Pitons.

    I would have to go with Thailand today- tough choice but I would kill for some Thai Mango Sticky Rice Pudding right now!

    Thailand, Thailand, Thailand.

    Thailand it is………….

    Definitely the Thailand site. I am not a beach relaxing person.
    A presto,

    PS I’d pick Rome before either though–and probably other palces in Italy too.
