In Amazing Thailand the silly season is never far away and it tends to get particularly silly at this time of the year, courtesy of Valentine's Day. We've had the usual underwater weddings in Trang, tying the knot aboard elephants in Chiang Mai and, no doubt, couples getting married while dangling upside down on a bungee jump.
Further afield, people have been exchanging vows while jumping out of aeroplanes, hanging on the edge of cliffs or swimming with sharks. Some in the US made their vows in a former insane asylum, which sounds a bit creepy, while others tied the knot in haunted houses, something one suspects will not catch on in Thailand. Taking pride of place, however, must be the Connecticut couple who were married atop a rubbish dump. It was where they first met. Now that really is romantic. This is all a far cry from My Fair Lady's prospective groom Stanley Holloway singing Get Me to the Church on Time after a night on the town. Perhaps people don't do that any more.
