Thailand

Thailand is at the centre of the Indochina peninsula in Southeast Asia. It shares a border with Mynmar to the north and west, Laos to the north and east, Cambodia to the southeast and Malaysia to the south. Hot, friendly and thoroughly enjoyable, Thailand is one of Asia’s favourite tourist destinations. The countryside is lush, the cities are bustling and chaotic, and its World Heritage Sites are most certainly worth a visit. Buddhism and food are a way of life here and Thais are a very tourist friendly lot. Spas, beaches, dense forests, national parks, shopping…. Thailand has it all!
