Thailand, Asia

More than 26.7 million people visited Thailand in 2013. A large percentage of these visitors come from neighboring South Asian countries but European and US visitors also make up a huge chunk. Thailand still retains its old world charm and its culture is largely intact. For a long time, Bangkok was a starting point for many backpacking tours into South and South East Asia.

Did you know that Thailand is a constitutional monarchy? This might come as a surprise to travelers from the West who are used to total democratic governments. There are a number of monuments and cultural attractions in Thailand including many in the capital Bangkok.

Thailand is actually much more than the neon lights and high rises that most tourists who come to Bangkok expect. If you care to go outside the city, you will find the people living an idyllic lifestyle. Most Thais are farmers and fishermen. Farms, rubber plantations and Buddhist temples dot the countryside. The major cities (for tourists) in Thailand are Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Pattaya, Ko Samui, Hua Hin District, Patong, Chiang Rai and Krabi.
