How beautiful is Thailand?
Thailand is called the land of “smiles” or serenity. It is one of the most beautiful countries in Southeast Asia.
All the modern conveniences of the opulent tourism industry can be found here. Thailand’s natural beauty will not disappoint, wherever tourists go – from the beaches of the southwest or the mountain villages of the north. Therefore, Thailand is a name of desire for travel enthusiasts.
The word Thailand means Pratheshthai which means “Thai province”. The largest city and capital of Thailand is Bangkok, which is located on the shores of the Gulf of Thailand at the mouth of the Chao Phraya River. Thailand is a country that has never been under the control of Europe or any other foreign power except during war.
In the middle of Thailand lies a vast productive plain. The main river of the country, the Chao Phraya, flows through this plain, which is why most of the rice and other crops grown in the region are cultivated. Although the central part of the country is plain, there are hills and plateaus in the west and north-east.
Almost all Thais are Buddhists, but there are ethnic differences. Other ethnicities living in Thailand include the Chinese, Malays and indigenous hill tribes. Thailand’s practiced classical music and dance and folk art are world famous. Despite being an agricultural country, the role of rich tourism behind the rapid development of Thailand’s economy is undeniable.
