Thailand is a prominent Southeast Asian nation that extends to the Malay Peninsula to its south where it is bordered by Malaysia. To the west of Thailand, lies Burma and to the east, lie Laos and Cambodia. Thailand is ranked as one of most populous countries in the world. The Kingdom of Thailand is a country in Southeast Asia known for its beaches and shopping opportunities. Its capital and largest city is Bangkok, located in central Thailand. Thailand currently has an estimated population of about 65,444,371 people. Thailand attracts close to five million tourists each year.

Ever wondered why Thailand never fails to attract a steady flow of tourists? The tourism industry in Thailand continues to thrive on the fact that it offers unspoiled natural beauty, attractions and a high quality yet affordable holiday for many. For the last two decades, Thailand has enjoyed healthy economic growth which was interrupted by the country's economic crisis of 1997. The country has since made major strides in recovery and now has a number of thriving industries such as; tourism, electronics, food processing, tin and tungsten mining. Thailand is a country with a sweet blend of scenic diversity and ancient traditions, tranquil temples and modernity. As a result of its long and independent history that dates back to more than seven centuries, Thailand has been able to absorb a variety of cultural influences and blend them into something amazingly Thai. It is this sweet blend in Thailand between the old and the new that, travellers have affectionately referred to Thailand as the best exotic country in Asia. Thailand is marked by a distinct culture, rich and varied heritage, along with natural beauty. Thailand is known as a place of kaleidoscopic wonders unseen elsewhere and will even attract the jaded travellers.

Siam is the name known by many outsiders outside of Thailand for centuries. The country was known as Siam to the world until 1939 and again between 1945 and 1949. On May 11, 1949, an official proclamation changed the name of the country to "Thailand" or "Prathet Thai" (in Thai). Till date, Siam is now known as Thailand by all. The word Thai represents free. Therefore, Thailand means "Land of the Free." Thailand's government structure has undergone gradual and practical evolution in response to the changing environment. Ever since 1932, it has been a constitutional monarchy with a parliamentarian form of government. The bicameral parliament is composed of elected representatives and appointed senators. The Prime Minister is selected from among members of the House of Representatives. Appointed governors administer 75 of the country's 76 provinces. The Bangkok Metropolis Administration is administered by an elected governor and is divided into 38 districts. The country is divided into 76 provinces, each administered by an appointed governor, which are sub-divided into district, sub-districts, and villages.

Thailand enjoys a warm, tropical climate affected by an annual monsoon with a rainy season from June to October and a dry season the rest of the year. Anyone travelling to the kingdom of Thailand would need to know about the climate so as to know what to expect and have a more comfortable journey throughout. The hottest months are in April and May, with locals also complaining about the heat of summer. The South west monsoons arrive in June bringing some relief to the parched earth. This season continues till the end of October with intermittent bursts of rain. The months from November till the end of February is a little more pleasant than the rest of the seasons with a decrease in the levels of humidity and cool breezes blowing from the North East. Nonetheless, you can visit Thailand all round the year.
