Thailand as a tour destination: a peek into the exotic Orient!
Thailand shares its borders with Laos, Myanmar, Cambodia, Malaysia, the Gulf of Thailand and the Indian Ocean, and can be explored by sea, air and road. It is divided into four main regions, namely North, Central Plain or the Chao Phraya River Basin, North East (Korat Plateau) and South or Southern Peninsula. The word, ‘thai,’ literally means ‘free’ and so it comes as no surprise that oodles of fun-filled freedom is the buzzword here!
Famous for its fertile agricultural offerings, numerous heritage palaces and famous temples, traditional forms of architecture blended with beautiful natural backdrop of beaches and islands, innumerable joys of shopping bonanzas and bargains, colorful carnivals, world-class shopping centers and culturally vibrant mood of festivals with endless variety in local foods and gourmet cuisine, make Singapore the exotic Oriental paradise it truly is.
