Travel Massive events are excellent venues for meeting other travelers and or those working in the travel industry. Mary Ann of JetSetExtra recently started these Los Angeles based events up again in January – a talk by someone in the travel industry is given followed by networking. These meetups are held in cities around the world – visit www.travelmassive.com for more details.
The venue was the Roof on Wilshire. The last time I was here it was cold and windy – this time it was just plain cold! It is a great place to hold an event – a rooftop bar serves a variety of drinks and snacks – and there are great views overlooking much of Hollywood and the western side. Heat lamps keep one warm on chilly evenings.
The Tourism Authority of Thailand, Los Angeles provided the talk for the evening; they gave an update on tourism in Thailand. Thai Town and parts of North Hollywood combined have the largest community of Thai’s outside of Thailand. Of all the Thai restaurants I have eaten at around the world, I have found the most authentic Thai restaurants outside of Thailand to be in parts of Los Angeles.
