The kingdom of Thailand, once known as Siam, is located in Southeastern Asia. Thailand is a country with rich history and what makes this country unique compared to other countries in the region is that they have developed their own culture independent of European colonist influence.
Tourism is another thing that makes this country popular. One of the reasons why tourists choose Thailand is that there are many high quality hotels offering their services for lower prices compared to other countries.
In the 80’s this part of the world developed an image of place where you can find good hotels for cheap price. This trend is also present nowadays and there are many hotels in Thailand that are regularly in the top 100 hotels in the world. Besides well known capital Bangkok, which has grown into a modern metropolis, tourism expansion is noticed in several other regions in the country.
Bangkok, the modern and very humid Asian metropolis, covers an area of around 560 km² and is well known for many tourist attractions. Although the city is fairly urbanized, you can feel the traditional Thai culture in every corner of the city. Contemporary skyscrapers, wide avenues and new overhead rail system will impress everyone. Bangkok is rich with many different attractions from museums, shrines, art galleries and many historic buildings (for those who are eager to learn something more about Thai culture) to countless bars, restaurants, clubs, multi-language cinemas.
Phuket is the largest island in Thailand and one of the most popular holiday destinations in Asia. It is located in the warm Andaman Sea in the Indian Ocean. We’ve mentioned exclusive hotels previously and Phuket is the place where you can find most of these hotels. The whole island is tourist-oriented and it’s hard to walk on the streets without getting an offer for boat trip, bungee jumping, riding on elephants or a trip to the small island of Phang Nga where a James Bond movie was filmed (also known as James Bond island). Another nearby island is Koh Phi Phi Don well known for its long white sandy beaches, probably the most beautiful ones in whole Asia.
The island of Ko Phi Phi Leh can be visited for a short trip but you can’t stay there because it is a national marine park and protected area.
It will take time to discover the magic of Thailand so we assure you that once you visit Thailand you will want to visit it again!
