Thailand Travel Booking
The kingdom of Thailand, in the heart of Southeast Asia, shares borders with Burma, Laos, Cambodia and Malaysia. The kingdom of Siam has many faces, from mountain villages to tropical forests, from rice paddies to tropical islands, and from Buddhist temples to skyscrapers in Bangkok. Thanks to its geographical situation and tropical climate, Thailand boasts an exceptional variety of flora and fauna. The northern mountains, which form the southern tip of the Himalayas, contain species that are unknown in its other regions. In the south, the flora and fauna are similar to Malaysia and Indonesia.
Nevertheless, the environment is increasingly threatened by economic development, in particular the tourist industry. The last great primary forests have all disappeared in Thailand, and more and more islands are being spoiled by tourist infrastructures.
A paradise for diving and trekking, spas and shopping, the country appeals to broke backpackers and businessmen. Its 2,700 kilometres of coastline attract beach buffs and sun-worshippers. Travellers will also be won over by the Thai sense of hospitality, a blend of kindness and nonchalance.
Bangkok is a place that takes you beyond the clichés, a contrasting and fascinating city of ten million inhabitants where luxury hotels rub shoulders with shantytowns. The beauty of its Buddhist temples is unforgettable.
Lastly, Thailand is among the top gastronomic destinations in the world, combining innumerable flavours and fragrances with the freshest of produce, especially fruit. Michelin's recommendations
