At first, nothing was visible. But as the bubbles cleared and I peered into the deep blue, the butterflies in my stomach turned into eagles.

    The hipsters are beating a path to Ari, a Bangkok residential district turned hotspot for dining out, street food, drip coffee and food entrepreneurs, says Annica Wainwright   ‘Where to today?’ asks our guide, expectantly. ‘Wat Arun, the Grand Palace, how about the big Buddha?’ Lek is doing his best to sell a city he’s justly proud of.

The driver’s voice splinters over the intercom, jerking me from a thousand-yard daze as the Greyhound rumbles past mile after mile of smooth, wind-shivered wheatfields. “Now, folks, a few minutes and we’ll be hittin’ a storm.
