Premiering August 23 on NBC (10 pm et/pt), Better Late Than Never has boxing legend turned businessman George Foreman, former NFL quarterback and current analyst Terry Bradshaw, actors Henry Winkler and William Shatner and comedian Jeff Dye traveling to Asia. The idea is to broaden their horizons and have a good time, but since this is a TV show we’re also assuming a bit of comedy is in the offing.
Stops on their journey include Japan (Tokyo and Kyoto), South Korea (Seoul), Hong Kong, and Thailand (Phuket, Chiang Mai). While promoting Better Late Than Never, Shatner and Dye sat down to talk about their stay at The Dhara Devi Chiang Mai. Dye said it was impossible to take a bad photo of the luxury hotel and its surrounding environment, and in the video below Shatner shares an interesting story about why their drive up to the hotel’s breathtaking entrance was a bit rocky.
“They put us up in this beautiful hotel,” said Dye. “I think it’s one of the top hotels in the world (it’s called) the Dhara Devi. We had been to these other hotels that are nice and everything was fine. Some nights we were in places (that were) not as nice but (the Dhara Devi) was a nice ending to the tour. I’ve never stayed in a better hotel.”
“Being part Thai, I’m a bit ashamed that my only reference to Thailand is Bangkok,” he continued. “But if I ever rubbed a couple of nickels together and made them count, this place is pretty easy on the eyes.”
Have you ever been to Chiang Mai? Are you excited to see Shatner, Dye and the rest of this motley crew stumble and bumble their way through Asia? Please comment below!!
