Put some "you time" in the diary and get away from it all. Anyway, Monday always look better with a view like this.

Thailand has been frequented by travellers since the hippie trail but when the suntanned Leonardo DiCaprio tumbled across our screens in the film 'The Beach', it’s arguable whether we loved a place more.
