Originally called Siam, Thailand
is a country rich in culture and natural beauty.
The country has more visible historical evidence
of its past cultures than any other country in
Southeast Asian. The Kingdom of Thailand,
covering an area of 514,000 squares kilometers,
lies in the heart of Southeast Asia, roughly
equidistant between India and China. It shares
borders with Myanmar to the west, Laos to the
northeast, Kampuchea to the east, and Malaysia to
Topographically, the country is divided into four
distinct areas: the mountainous North, the
fertile Central Plains, the semi-arid plateau of
the Northeast, and the peninsula South.
Thailand has a tropical climate with three
distinct seasons: Hot (March-May), Rainy
(June-October), and Cool (November-February).
Average temperature is around 27 degree Celsius
(80.6 degree Fahrenheit).
The population of Thailand is 59,000,000.
Thailand's capital and gateway city is Bangkok,
located in the Central region. But Thailand
is more than Bangkok. It is a Thai stilt house in
an undulating sea of green rice, the discovery of
colourful northern hilltribes from elephant back
or a bamboo raft. Or the ruin of an ancient
temple about to be engulfed by jungle, a gibbon's
haunting call in a dense rainforest, or powdery
sand around a towering limestone plinth in an
azure southern sea.
