A country located in Southeast Asia beaches , is bordered by Myanmar to the north and northwest, Lao PDR and
Cambodia to the east, Malaysia and the Gulf of Thailand beaches to the south, and the Andaman Sea to the southwest.
A unified Thai kingdom was established in the mid-14th century. Known originally as Siam, the country was
renamed Thailand (‘Land of the Free’) in 1939. Thailand’s capital city is Bangkok, its currency is the baht (THB),
and the official language is Thai.The country is currently under military rule following the coup d’état of May 2014.
However, a new constitution was promulgated on 6 April 2017, and a return to democratic rule will follow a general
election expected to beheld during 2018.Thailand is Southeast Asia’s second largest economy, after Indonesia. With a well-developed
infrastructure, a free-enterprise economy, and generally pro-investment policies, Thailand beaches historically has had
a strong economy; however, it experienced slow growth from 2013 to 2015 as a result of domestic political turmoil
and sluggish global demand, which curbed Thailand’s traditionally strong exports, mostly electronics, agricultural commodities, automobiles and parts, and processed foods. In 2015 and 2016, gross domestic product (GDP) growth was
2.9% and 3.2%, respectively. In 2017, it is expected to be in the region of 3.3% to 3.8%.

The North is the country’s highlands. Vast mountain ranges dominate the landscape and are the source of many rivers.
Doi Inthanon, Thailand’s tallest peak, is famous among tourists during the cool season for the Mae Kha Ning
(frost flower) phenomenon as well as a sea of fog, nature trails, waterfalls, and botanical scenes.
Sand between Your Toes
With a long coastline (actually, two coastlines) and jungle-topped islands anchored in azure waters,
Thailand is a tropical getaway for the hedonist and the hermit, the prince and the pauper. This paradise
offers a varied menu: playing in the gentle surf of Ko Lipe, diving with whale sharks off Ko Tao, scaling
the sea cliffs of Krabi, kite boarding in Hua Hin, partying on Ko Phi-Phi, recuperating at a health resort on Ko Samui and feasting on the beach wherever sand meets sea.
Friendly and fun-loving, cultured and historic, Thailand radiates a golden hue, from its glittering temples and tropical beaches through to the ever-comforting Thai smile.
A Bountiful Table
Adored around the world, Thai cuisine expresses fundamental aspects of Thai culture: it is generous, warm, refreshing and relaxed. Thai dishes rely on fresh, local ingredients – pungent lemongrass, searing chillies and plump seafood. A varied national menu is built around the four fundamental flavours: spicy, sweet, salty and sour. Roving appetites go on eating tours of Bangkok noodle shacks, seafood pavilions in Phuket, and Burmese market stalls in Mae Sot. Cooking classes reveal the simplicity behind the seemingly complicated dishes, and mastering the market is an important survival skill.
Fields & Forests
In between the cluttered cities and towns is the rural heartland, which is a mix of rice paddies, tropical forests and squat villages tied to the agricultural clock. In the north, the forests and fields bump up against toothy blue mountains decorated with silvery waterfalls. In the south, scraggy limestone cliffs poke out of the cultivated landscape like prehistoric skyscrapers. The usually arid northeast emits an emerald hue during the rainy season when tender green rice shoots carpet the landscape.
The celestial world is a close confidant in this Buddhist nation, and religious devotion is colourful and ubiquitous. Gleaming temples and golden Buddhas frame both the rural and the modern landscape. Ancient banyan trees are ceremoniously wrapped in sacred cloth to honour the resident spirits, fortune-bringing shrines decorate humble homes as well as monumental malls, while garland-festooned dashboards ward off traffic accidents. Visitors can join the conversation through meditation retreats in Chiang Mai, religious festivals in northeastern Thailand, underground cave shrines in Kanchanaburi and Phetchaburi, and hilltop temples in northern Thailand.
