From the white sand beaches of Phuket in the south, to the rain forested hills of Chiang Mai in the north to the amazing Wat pagodas of the central plain, Thailand is a tourist paradise. Thailand is the size of Spain and owns one of the world’s most delicious cuisines and 67 million friendly people making the nation a pleasure to experience in any region. Thailand is the only Southeast Asian country never to have been taken over or colonized by a European power, and fiercely proud of the fact. Bangkok is a modern cosmopolitan metropolis and nearby Ayutthaya holds numerous relics of the past.
