We\'re aware of the jokes thrown at our Thai neighbors--specifically, about how Bangkok is teeming with good-looking \"women\" who are actually transsexuals (or \"lady boys,\" as they\'re fondly called). It\'s politically incorrect, and we\'re sure it\'s hurtful to a nation that boasts red-blooded kick-boxers.
Personally, we haven\'t had an encounter of the sort. And if our visit to the 2013 Bangkok International Auto Salon is anything to go by, we\'re willing to bet our last peso that Thai women are among the most beautiful in Asia, if not the whole world.
You\'ve seen the attention-grabbing cars; now, check out the gorgeous booth babes. We\'ve carefully selected 20 photographs of the best models at the show. Let us know which ones you find the prettiest by leaving a comment or two at the bottom.
In case you want to personally meet these sweet-smiling ladies, you have until June 30 to drop by the Bangkok Auto Salon at the Impact Muang Thong Thani complex.
Oh, yeah...you\'re welcome.
