Thailand – By Samantha Roberts

From the sensory overload of glittering metropolis Bangkok to the and the mist-shrouded jungles of the Golden Triangle and the many blissed-out islands, few destinations can match Thailand’s appeal. Behind the hedonistic nightlife and beaches, you’ll discover a country that is also creative and reverential, steeped in history and home to traditional communities of sea gypsies and hill tribes. The ‘Land of Smiles’ welcomes more travellers than any other Southeast Asian country, who are seduced by its warm hospitality, epicurean delights, picture-postcard scenery and an abundance of wildlife and adventure opportunities. It’s impossible to tire of Thailand.

Language: Thai, with tribal languages spoken in parts of the country. English is widely spoken in tourist areas.
