Welcome to Thailand
Be bombarded by thrilling Bangkok, explore its buzzing markets and gold-tinged temples via narrow canalways or view the dizzying cityscape from world-class rooftop restaurants. Choose between the islands off her southwest coast, such as Phuket, or off her southeast coast, such as Koh Samui, for sublime whiter-than-white tropical beaches and some of the best service in Asia.
In comparison to its neighbours, Thailand has had a relatively peaceful history and has developed at a faster pace than the rest of South East Asia. However it is the country's natural charms that enchant visitors, and the one that leaves the most lasting impression is the Thai people themselves. The majority of the population are Theravada Buddhists and for most Thais their religion influences every aspect of their lives from work to play. Another major influence on daily life is the guiding light of King Rama IX, who is revered and loved throughout the Kingdom. Visitors are drawn to the stunning gilded temples and exotic khlongs (canals) of Bangkok, to trekking in the jungles and tribal highlands of Chiang Mai and Chiang Rai and to exploring the ancient cities of Ayutthaya and Sukhothai. Thailand's numerous national parks, such as the oldest, Khao Yai National Park support an abundance of wildlife, from elephants and tigers to hundreds of species of birds. Camp under the stars in a luxury tent, trek through the lush forests, or raft on sparkling rivers. The Andaman Coast is to the west of the southern peninsula and is famous for its limestone rock formations, colourful dive sites and idyllic secluded beaches. The clear, turquoise seas of the Gulf of Thailand lap the beaches to the east of the peninsula and are full of corals and fish. Thailand has some of the world's most charming, beautifully serviced hotels, and draws visitors back time and again.
