Thailand is a Southeast Asian country that has never been colonized. It's known for tropical beaches, opulent royal palaces, ancient ruins and ornate temples displaying figures of Buddha. In Bangkok, the capital, an ultramodern cityscape rises next to quiet canalside communities and the iconic temples of Wat Arun, Wat Pho and the Emerald Buddha Temple (Wat Phra Kaew). Nearby beach resorts include bustling Pattaya and fashionable Hua Hin.
Communities are spread throughout the country and each one offers its own qualities from seaside villages to mountain retreats. The waterways in Thailand are also very special and one can find floating resorts that in many ways are off the grid and really give you an opportunity to escape the stress of the day.
A Thailand Vacation is a great way to experience an amazing land.
