Thailand

 

The Kingdom of Thailand draws more visitors than any other country in southeast Asia with its irresistible combination of breathtaking natural beauty, inspiring temples, renowned hospitality, robust cuisine and ruins of fabulous ancient kingdoms.

From the stupa-stud
ded mountains of Mae Hong Son and the verdant limestone islands of the Andaman Sea, to the pulse-pounding dance clubs of Bangkok and the tranquil villages moored along the Mekong River, Thailand offers something for every type of traveller.

Of course Thailand, like
other Asian countries, has been influenced by contact with foreign cultures. But the never-changing character of Thai culture has remained dominant, even in modern city life. Often depicted as fun-loving, happy-go-lucky folk (which indeed they often are), the Thais are also proud and strong, and have struggled for centuries to preserve their independence of spirit.

 

Bangkok

 

Bangkok, one of the most vibrant cities in South East Asia. A city that never sleeps and always fascinates. Hospitable people, glittering temples, colourful markets, great shopping and exotic nightlife. Bangkok is an intoxicating mixture of aromas, sights and visual delights.

Bangkok's dazzling temples are a unique part of the capital's heart and soul. The temples (or "Wats") are not just tourist attractions but also play an important part in Buddhist traditions. Monks live in the temple complexes, get up around 4 am, attend to prayers and duties and then collect food and necessities from ordinary people on the streets.

 

Koh Samui

Koh Samui, the beautiful island of the coconut trees, is the third largest Thai island. (Only Phuket and Koh Chang are bigger) The area is about 247 square km's and it is located 700 km south of Bangkok. Well known beaches are Chaweng, Lamai, Bophut, Big Buddha, Choeng Mon, Hua Thanon and Maenam. Samui also has many sister islands; Koh Tao, (One of the top diving islands in Asia) Koh Phangan and the Angthong National Marine Park.

The town on Samui is named Nathon. You will find banks, post offices, restaurants and a few shops etc. here, but it's is not a place where most people stay. There are many exchange offices and ATM machines around the island. Nathon also has a rather long pier where boats from mainland of Thailand arrives.

Most beaches has white sand and are fringed with coconut palms. Many resorts and hotels are located just a couple of meters from the beach.
