Surely this just proves the old maxim,

You can fool all of the people some of the time,

and all of the people some if the time. :o

By the way what is Conde Nast?

Never heard of it.

A travel magazine geared to the upscale crowd.

Conde (should be an accent on the e) are he people that publish Tatler and a few other high brow social magazines. I once tried to get a job on the aforemention publication.

On the subject at hand, I would say that Tokyo would be superior to Bangkok as holiday destination. Much more expensive, but a much better night life and music scene. All night partying, no urine test hassles and less nasty pollution up your nose.

I wonder if it will stay #1 if all the clampdowns continue?

I can't see it myself. People are staying away in droves. Until there is a chance in current restrictions people wil stay away.

Isn't "high brow social magazine" an oxymoron?
