Known also as Siam, the ancient name of this country until 1949, Thailand is a fascinating place of ancient traditions, a crossroads of culture where the testimony of vanished civilizations alternates with surprising natural scenarios. It is a place where you can enjoy a rare sense of welcome and warmth.
From the plateaus of the north, where impenetrable mountains and the Mekong River separate the country from Myanmar and Laos, the landscape of Thailand changes radically and multiplies as it descends towards the broad plain of the Chao Phraya River: rainforests, rice paddies, orchards, floating markets, and over a hundred natural land and marine parks.
The marvellous tropical paradises that have made the country world famous are in the Gulf of Thailand and the Andaman Sea. Ko Samui, Phuket, and Ko Chang – to name only a few – are among the most spectacular islands in the world, perfect not only for travellers in search of adventure, but also those who want to relax at modern and well-appointed locations.
A radically different but equally exciting experience is offered by Bangkok, a complex and chaotic metropolis full of energy, futuristic surprises, and timeless secrets.
