Thailand Travel Holiday Guide Vacations Thailand

Thailand Holiday Travel Guide Vacations


Thailand is one of the most accessible and well known countries in South East Asia. Its diverse attractions make it popular with tourists and travellers of all types and ages. Sun seekers lie on the beaches on one of Thailand's many beautiful tropical islands, backpackers explore Thailand's culture and Westerners (farang) who stay long term hang out in Bangkok or work in one of Thailand's tourist resorts.

The Kingdom of Thailand, which used to be called Siam until 1939, has never been colonized by the West and therefore does not have the same resentment towards foreigners that is experienced in some other countries. Thailand is an interesting country to visit historically and culturally with impressive ruins from ancient empires in Thailand. Thailand was invaded by the Burmese and was under Khmer control for some time. People from other areas such as China, Laos, Myanmar, Malaysia and Tibet have ended up in Thailand, leading to a diverse mixture of people and cultures. Buddhism came to Thailand from India in the second or third century BC and has become the predominant religion but there is also a strong Muslim community in Thailand. Thais are very proud of their King. The easy going attitude of the people in Thailand has led to Thailand being known as the 'Land of Smiles'. Thais tend to be pleasant and friendly, and used to tourists. English is now taught in schools so many young Thais speak some English.

Thailand is part of South East Asia and borders Laos, Myanmar, Cambodia and Malaysia. Refugees from Myanmar live in settlements in Thailand. Thailand's hill tribes in the north consist of different ethnic groups and sea gypsies live on the islands in the south. There are border crossings between Thailand and her neighbouring countries, allowing travellers to cross by land. Thailand is a good place to start a trip to South East Asia as it is: very easy going; well set up for tourists; and it is possible to get visas for other countries in Bangkok. Thailand is shaped like an elephant, with the northern region being the ears and head, and the southern gulf being the trunk. The Siamese elephant is a national emblem and there are still some wild elephants left in Thailand.

Tourism in Thailand has been heavily promoted by the Tourism Authority Thailand (TAT). Tourism in Thailand is well organized and the attractions are easily accessible. Increasing numbers of tourists from the West are visiting 'amazing Thailand'. Thailand has varied attractions including interesting and cultured cities; historical parks with stunning monuments and temples from ancient Siam; national parks of outstanding natural beauty; wildlife sanctuaries; tropical islands and beaches; tasty food and meditation retreats.

Use this as your Thailand travel holiday guide to experience this incredible culture.
