Thailand

DESTINATION

Officially known as the Kingdom of Thailand, this Southeast Asian nation shares a border with Myanmar to the northwest, Laos to the northeast, Cambodia to the east, and Malaysia to the south. Thailand is a leading tourist destination in Southeast Asia. Prior to the 13th century, Thailand was known as Siam and was inhabited by different tribes from southern China as well as various Thai-speaking groups, each of whom established their own tribal states. Democratic reform in 1932 led to the formation of Thailand’s constitutional monarchy, which remains in existence to this day. During the economic crash of 1997 and the political turbulence of 2006, the Thailand’s king appealed to the people of the nation to pull together in unity. The political determination of its citizens and the existence of its monarch have enabled Thailand to continue its journey forward as a democratic nation. The nation’s territory is approximately 1.4 times the size of Japan. It can generally be divided into four regions: northern Thailand, northeast Thailand, central Thailand, and southern Thailand. The fertile central plains are often called Southeast Asia’s ‘rice bowl’. Ninety five percent of the population of Thailand are Buddhist (Theravada Buddhism). Males are expected to undergo Buddhist monastic training at least once in their lives. Resplendent Buddhist temples can be found throughout the country. In the wee hours of the morning, mendicant monks in monastic robes can be seen begging for alms. Thailand enjoys a world-wide reputation for its elegant dances, cuisine, and silk. The country is also home to a large number of important World Heritage Sites such as Sukhothai and Ayutthaya, as well as world-class beach resorts in Phuket and Pattaya.
