Country of Indochina (it is the ex Siam), limited monarchy to parliamentary regime, it is in economic growth, with generalized increase of the living standard and the schooling rate (illiterates are only the 4%).
It overlooks the Gulf of the Siam (to east) and both the Sea of the Andamane (to west); through Kra isthmus the Thai territory connects to the Malay peninsula.
It is a beautiful nation, with one charming and chaotic capital (Bangkok); with huge forests in the northern high earths; with wide and very cultivated alluvial plains (Rivers Menam and Mekong) and with beautiful tropical beaches to South (Phuket and Phi Phi Islands Islands).
The Gold Buddha Monastery in Bangkok and those on the River Kwai to Kanchanaburi are only some of the artistic and cultural attractions of the nation.
