Thailand has been rated number one destination in the Asia Travel Intentions Survey 2007 commissioned by Visa International and the Pacific Asia Travel Association (Pata).

Thailand is southeast Asia's premiere destination with over 10 million visitors per year sampling its irresistible combination of breathtaking natural beauty, inspiring temples, outstanding hospitality and superb cuisine. The country comprises 76 provinces each divided into districts, sub-districts and villages. Thailand is a large country, stretching over 1,600 Kilometres from North to South. It is also a land of incredible diversity, of tranquil temples and modern urban excitement. With and independent history going back more than seven centuries, it has managed to absorb a variety of cultural influences and blend them into something uniquely and memorably Thai.

 
 
Thailand is divided into 4 regions :


 
 
  1. The Central Plain, one of the world's most fertile rice and fruit growing areas with colourful traditional culture and way of life as well as the sandy beaches of the East Coast and vibrant cosmopolitan Bangkok.
 
 
  2. The Peninsular South where the unspoiled beaches and idyllic islands. The coast of tropical Thailand extends for over 2,000 kilomatres. Eastward lie the
Gulf of Thailand and South China Sea, westward the Andaman Sea.
 
  3. The Mountainous North, with its profusion of multi-coloured orchids, fascinating native handicrafts and winter temperatures are sufficiently cool to permit cultivation of temperate fruits such as strawberries and peaches.
 
 
  4. The High Northeast Plateau, which still jealously guards its many archaeological and anthropological mysteries.
 

 
 
  Each of its four major region offers a distinctive experience for the traveler in search of discovery. Misty mountains in the north shelter verdant valleys and exotic hill tribes, while in centers like Chiang Mai, traditional customs and crafts have been preserved over generations. Along the picturesque coastlines of the east and south lie some of the world’s most beautiful beaches and off-shore islands, each with its own beauty . Scattered over the northeastern plateau are superb khamer monuments from the time of Angkor Wat and natural parks teeming with wild life . In the Central Region can be found the evocative ruins of ancient Thai capitals and bustling Bangkok with its dynamic and countless pleasures.
