Thailand is a Southeast Asian country. Adored around the world, Thai cuisine expresses fundamental aspects of Thai culture: it is generous, warm, refreshing and relaxed.
In between the cluttered cities and towns is the rural heartland, which is a mix of rice paddies, tropical forests and squat villages tied to the agricultural clock. In the north, the forests and fields bump up against toothy blue mountains decorated with silvery waterfalls. Friendly and fun loving, exotic and tropical, cultured and historic, Thailand radiates a golden hue from its glittering temples and tropical beaches through to the ever-comforting Thai smile.
Endless encounters with history and culture, the new and the old, at just about every turn. White-sand beaches, jungles, ancient ruins and Buddhist temples.Indeed, the food satisfies; but Thailand offers so much more.
