Officially known as the Kingdom of Thailand and formerly known as Siam, Thailand is the world’s 50th largest country with a surface area of approximately 513,000 square kilometers (198,000 square miles). Located in the heart of Southeast Asia, Thailand shares common borders with Malaysia, Myanmar, Lao PDR. and Cambodia, and is the natural gateway to ASEAN and the Greater Mekong Subregion. The country consists of 77 administrative provinces or changwat each of which is divided into districts or amphoe, sub-districts or tambon and villages or muban.

Bangkok is the capital city and center of politics, commerce, and finance. It is also the seat of Thailand’s revered Royal Family.

Thailand has a constitutional monarchy with His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, or King Rama IX, the ninth king of the Chakri Dynasty, the present king. His Majesty is recognized as Head of State, Head of the Armed Forces, Upholder of the Buddhist religion and Upholder of all religions. The Parliament is composed of two houses, the House of Representatives and the Senate, and both representatives and senators are elected by the people. A prime minister elected from among the representatives leads the government. Thailand is unlike anywhere else in the world, as the country has a myriad of natural and cultural treasures waiting to be discovered.

These tourism resources offer tremendous diversity and choice to enjoy a culturally enriching holiday in each region. While travelling, tourists want to gain knowledge about the authenticity of a destination’s lifestyle, culture, and traditions when travelling.

Whether trekking in the forested hills of the North, observing the rice paddies of the Central Region, exploring the timeless villages of the Northeast, or lazing on a tropical isle of the South, Thailand has it all no matter what age or interest, as each region has its own unique charm different from the other that we know you will be amazed by all that you see and experience.

2.0 out of 5 stars Informative in parts - but very badly organised 18 Mar 2013

No contents list - so you have to scroll through page after page until you find something relating to the area that you are interested in. Not worth buying.

I was surprised that a government produced travel guide would be so could. I used it several times on my last trip to Thailand and it didn't let me down.

A good read before your first visit to Thailand. It is not a page turner, but the information was helpful and easy to follow.

A very good introduction to Thailand written by the local tourist authority. As would be expected from a tourist office, it's a bit too enthusiastic provides lots of information provided on places to visit, local customs, as well as safety tips.

A very good representation of the country . Basic, good, need to know facts. Others in my group used other books which i realised were necessary to complement this book. Great country, people, culture, food and shopping. Similar to my country
