The Thailand kingdom is the destination of the incredible contrasts and of the extraordinary landscapes.

General Thailand

the Tropical Garden Nong Nooch from Pattaya is famous for the elephants shows, temples like Wat Trimit have golden statues of Buddha and so on.

 

The Thailand culture, concentrated around Buddhism, the exotic decors, the fauna- very different from the European one- all of these and many more transpose you in another world, help you to experience a new and fascinating culture.

 

When they talk about Thailand, some people are thinking about beaches with fine sand, blue sky and crystal water through which you can see the multicoloured fish and the corals; other people can imagine Pattaya with its intense night life.

 

And still, Thailand has much more to offer; it attracts more tourists than any other country from the South-East of Asia through its irresistible combination of natural landscapes, sunny resorts, old temples and the people’s hospitality.

 

The Bangkok capital is situated in the country’s centre, at the Chao Phraya River’s mouth in the Siam’s water and is often called the Orient Venice due to its numerous channels that go through and especially due to the ‘gondolas’, true floater stands full of products that are sold on water.

 

Bangkok has over 400 temples but the splendour of the capital is the Big Palace - a complex of temples, palaces and official buildings.

Bangkok is a noisy city, chaotic, with a lot of places where you can have fun and try different culinary products or where you can assist to a Thai box game.

 

Phuket is the biggest island of Thailand. Beside hotels, restaurants and stores, Phuket has a rich aquarium with exotic fish and a botanic garden.

At Nakhon Pathom, the Pra Pathom Chdedi pagoda is the highest Buddhist monument in the world and has an age of about 1.000 years.
