Friendly and fun-loving, cultured and historic
Thailand is one of the most attractive tourist attractions in Southeast Asia. From elephant trek, unspoiled islands, elegant Buddhist temples to outrageous nightlife, tasty local foods and fabulous resorts, Thailand will never disappoint you! Though tourism is highly developed in this country, people here remain to be light-hearted and friendly. Let’s include this ‘Land of Smiles’ on your bucket list this year.
The Kingdom of Thailand consists of four main regions: the fertile Central Plains including Bangkok; the Northern region with mountains, fertile valleys and a deep local history, the less accessible and thus very authentic Northeast; and the South which is famous for its world beating beaches and idyllic limestone islands. Due to the fact that Thailand was never colonised, the country has fully retained its unique culture, traditions and language. Welcome to Thailand, the “Land of Smiles”!
