Thailand is a Southeast Asian, predominantly Buddhist kingdom almost equidistant between India and China. It covers an area of some 510,000 square kilometres. Thailand, formerly known as Siam has its capital city as Bangkok. It attracts many tourists due to it's irresistible combination of breathtaking natural beauty, inspiring temples, renowned hospitality, robust cuisine and ruins of fabulous ancient kingdoms.

One-fifth of Thailand is covered by monsoon forest or rainforest, and the country has an incredible array of fruit trees, bamboo and tropical hardwoods.
