Thailand, the only Southeast Asian nation never to have been colonized by European powers, is a constitutional monarchy whose current head of state is HM Bhumibol Adulyadej. A unified Thai kingdom has existed since the mid-14th century, and Thailand was known as Siam until 1939, when it officially became the Kingdom of Thailand

THAILAND

Geography

Thailand is the 50th largest country in the world; most nearly equal in size to Spain. Located just 15 degrees north of the equator, Thailand has a tropical climate, and temperatures typically range from 19 to 38 degrees C (66-100 F). Thailand’s largest peak, Doi Inthanon, is 2,565 meters (8,415 ft) tall. Thailand covers 510,890 sq km of land and 2,230 sq km of water. The coastline of Thailand is 3,219 km long. Thailand’s longest shared border is with Myanmar (Burma), stretching 1,800 km.

Weather

The weather in Thailand is generally hot and humid: typical of its location within the tropics. Generally speaking, Thailand can be divided into three seasons: “hot” season, rainy season and “cool” season, though Thailand’s geography allows visitors to find suitable weather somewhere in the country throughout the year.

Population

The population of Thailand comprises roughly 65 million citizens, the majority of whom are ethnically Thai, though peoples of Chinese, Indian, Malay, Mon, Khmer, Burmese and Lao origin are also represented to varying degrees. 8

People

While 80% of Thailand’s population are that, He remeny represent the mix of peoples in souefy. Chinese, Indian, Malay, Mon, Khmer, Burmese and Lao decent. In Bangkok, there is a greater diversity of ethnicities, including a large number of expatriate residents from across the globe. Other geographic distinctions of the population include a Muslim majority in the south near the Malaysian border, and hill tribe ethnic groups, such as the Hmong and Karen, who live in the northern mountains.

More than 92% of the population speaks Thai or one of it’s regional dialects.

THAILAND’S CENTRAL REGION Ratchaburi / Suan Phueng This bordering district of Ratchaburi would have fallen off the travellers’ radar had it not been for a string of Mediterranean-themed resorts dotting its mountainous landscape. Most are destinations in themselves, complete with a horse ranch, sheep farm, trickling streams and European gardens. But securing a room at one of these resort farms requires advance planning, as each has only a limited number of rooms and, believe it or not, they fill in very fast.

Ayutthaya Just a quick train ride or drive from Bangkok Ayutthaya is a must see Unesco World Heritage site, dotting the landscape with centuries old temples. Reminiscent of times past, Ayutthaya was once home to the capitol of the ancient Siam kingdom that existed from 1351 to 1767. Try to visit 9 temples in one day for an added boost of luck and good fortune.

Kanchanaburi Kanchanaburi province, located a few hours from Bangkok offers a plethora of activities for Travelers. Some include a visit to the infamous River Kwai, The World War memorial museum and cemetery, as well as Hellfire Pass are major draws for day activities. Be sure to see Erawan falls, one of the largest and most beautiful waterfalls in Thailand. This province burgeons more and more each year, popular with local and foreign tourist for its renowned riverside weekends in floating hotels.

Amphawa Floating Market An afternoon floating market by the canal near Wat Amphawan Chetiyaram (parking is available). On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 12am – 8pm, the Amphawa Canal is occupied by vendors who pack their boats with food and drinks, such as fried sea mussels, noodles, coffee, O-liang (iced black coffee) and sweets.

THAILAND’S GULF OF THAILAND REGION Koh Samui

The premier island destination in the Gulf of Thailand, Koh Samui is the third largest island in Thailand. While it is small enough to be circumnavigated in just a couple of hours by motorbike or car, the island features such a variety of beaches and activities that it would be impossible to experience everything in a single visit. The beaches of Chaweng and Lamai are bustling beach towns with fabulous resorts, internationally acclaimed restaurants and world-class nightclubs. Activities include cooking courses, yoga instruction, Muay Thai training, scuba diving – and even golf.

Koh Kood

Koh Kood is a pristine island ideal for a relaxing beach holiday. Just south of Koh Chang, its more popular neighboring island, Koh Kood, is far less developed and, consequently, more idyllic. A flat island covered almost entirely with native forest or coconut and rubber plantations, Koh Kood has a number of pristine beaches with crystal clear water. Koh Kood is located near the Cambodian border and has an ethnically mixed population of roughly 2,000 residents, which is slowly transitioning from an exclusive plantation and fishing economy to an incipient tourism oriented one.

Koh Chang The island of Koh Chang is a tropical marine national park. Its hinterland consists of over 70% virgin rainforest and is the best preserved tourist holiday destination in Thailand. Situated to the east of the country in the province of Trat on the Cambodian border, it is Thailand’s second largest island after Phuket. Recently, with the surge of the island’s development and popularity, it has been elevated to Thailand’s new tourist haven. It has an airport near Trat, just 15 minutes from the ferry terminal. Bangkok Airways run twice-daily services from Bangkok, Phuket and Koh Samui.

Hua Hin Hua Hin/Chaam- Known to be one of the most charming beach destinations closest to Bangkok, Hua Hin revels in its continuing development and expansion. Only 3 hours by car, with plenty of actvities to stop for on the way, Hua Hin was once a sleepy village-like town. These days it has grown into a major destination with fa range of boutique hotels, seafood restaurants, and long pristine beaches perfect for morning jogs, or more uplifting and extreme activities like kite-boarding.

THAILAND’S ANDAMAN SEA REGION Phi Phi Koh Phi Phi is the collective name for a small archipelago in Krabi Province just an hour boat ride from Phuket. Known as the ‘jewel of the Andaman Sea’, there are six islands. Only Phi Phi is inhabited; all others are protected by National Park status. Phi Phi was featured in the Hollywood blockbuster movie “The Beach”. The waters are filled with exotic marine life, including docile leopard sharks. Snorkeling and diving rival lounging on the beach as top activities. Phi Phi features a vibrant nightlife, with Tonsai Beach containing dozens of beach bars, restaurants and the lively Tonsai Village consisting of a maze of shops, bars and restaurants.

Phuket Phuket is no stranger to travelers from across the globe. As the largest island in Thailand, Phuket is the main beach destination with easy connections to the rest of the Andaman Sea region. Right off the coast of the island is Pha Nga bay, dotted with 1000’s of small islands great for day trips, including the infamous James Bond Island. Major beaches on the island include Kata, Karon, and Patong gripped with the strongest influence of mass tourism. While other beaches remain a bit quieter moving slightly north, and include Kamala, Laguna / Bangtao, Naiyang, & Maikhao.

Krabi Krabi as a destination is one of the most magical places in Thailand. The karst mountains claw their way toward the ocean, dotting the glassy seas with small islands perfect for exploring by day. Krabi province includes some favorites like Ao Nang, Ao Tham Pranang, and Railay beaches. The pristine sands and emerald tinted seas offer instant relaxation and rejuvenation, and a host of options for the vacationer. Hot Springs, rock climbing, island hopping, diving and snorkeling and some of the best spas and hotels in the region.

Koh Lanta Koh Lanta is a 25 km-long island off the Andaman coast of Thailand, south of Phuket and Krabi. Renowned for its long beaches, quiet seclusion and natural beauty both above and below the water, Koh Lanta is a beach lover’s and scuba diver’s paradise.
