ThaiLAND

  Thailand , formerly known as Siam, officially the Kingdom of Thailand. Is the world's 51st-largest country in terms of total area, with around 64 million people.  The capital and largest city is Bangkok.



  The country is a constitutional monarchy, headed by King Rama IXthe world's longest-serving head of stateThe word Thai is not, as commonly believed, derived from the word Tai meaning "independence" in the Thai language; it is, however, the name of an ethnic group from the central plains (the Thai people).

  Thailand is largely tropicalwith temperatures in the 28-35°C range. However, note three seasons:

  • Cool: From November to the end of February, it doesn't rain much and temperatures are at their lowest.
  • Hot: From March to June,  not the best time of year to go temple-tramping in Bangkok.
  • Rainy: From July to October,  tropical monsoons hit most of the country.
