Thailand is situated in South East Asia, bordered by Burma, Laos, Cambodia and Malaysia.
The capital Bangkok, is one of the most visited cities in the Far East - overcrowded but buzzing with life; the city is home to over 300 Budhist Temples but is also known for its very sleazy aspect. Rural Thailand is breathtakingly beautiful and increasingly popular as a paradise holiday destination. Resorts like Phuket and Ko Samui are being discovered all over.
Many visitors to Thailand are struck by how friendly the Thai people are; all are astounded by the beauty of the country; some go for the legendary Thai food and others for the splendour of the thousands of Temples and sacred sights. There is a wealth of culture to experience in this unforgettable country.
Tip: Spend two or three of days in Bangkok. Many young backpackers choose Thailand as a place to spend several weeks exploring. Traveling from outlying island resorts could be very expensive. Do check!
