The ancient Kingdom of Thailand is a friendly, fun-loving, exotic, tropical, cultured, and historic country which burns fiercely with the heat of modernity, while maintaining its roots to its historic past. Thailand radiates a golden hue from its glittering temples and tropical beaches to the ever-comforting Thai smile.
Over recent years, Thailand has experienced a dramatic social and political upheaval, while its history, traditions and exotic wares still remain, coexisting with an influx of industry, technology, and social transformation. The Thailand of today is rapidly becoming a highly advanced 21st-century society where you can then enjoy its countless attractions to the full.
This Buddhist nation is colourful with gleaming temples and golden Buddha’s framing both the rural and modern landscape. Away from the main cities is the rural heartland, with its mix of rice paddies, tropical forests, and quaint villages. In the north, the forests and fields nestle up against the Blue Mountains with their glistening waterfalls. In the south, limestone cliffs protrude out of the cultivated landscape.
Thai cuisine reflects all aspects of Thai culture: it is generous, warm, refreshing, and relaxed. Each Thai dish relies on fresh, local ingredients – including pungent lemongrass, searing chillies and plump seafood.
Most visitors who visit Thailand begin and end their stay in Bangkok. The capital has impressive historical sights, great food, vibrant nightlife, and world-class shopping, but, most importantly, it provides a thrilling introduction to this captivating nation.
