days
Houston

Although urban sprawl remains synonymous with Houston, most of the city's tourist attractions lie within the relatively small downtown area, surrounded by diverse neighborhoods housing the nation's biggest African-American, Asian-American, and Latino communities.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Washington-on-the-Brazos and Monument Hill State Park. George Ranch Historical Park and St. Mary's Church High Hill will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Houston: Star of the Republic Museum (in Washington) and Fayette County Clerk (in La Grange). There's much more to do: engage your brain at Houston Museum of Natural Science, admire the sheer force of Water Wall, explore the world behind art at Bayou Bend Collection and Gardens, and examine the collection at Space Center Houston.

If you are flying in from Thailand, the closest major airports are George Bush Intercontinental Houston Airport and William P Hobby Airport. In August, daily temperatures in Houston can reach 43°C, while at night they dip to 29°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
