Why Visit Thailand?

Thailand's most impressive natural resource has to be its coastline. Each year, millions of visitors flock to its many idyllic beaches to relax at resorts and enjoy a variety of water activities like snorkeling and canoeing. Trekking and wildlife-watching are more interesting for the beautiful flora and fauna that abound in the national parks. Visitors can sign up to participate in elephant-keeper programs, walking with elephants through jungle terrain and feeding them with fruit. The central plains are the historic heartland, hosting ruined cities of the Sukhothai and Ayutthaya kingdoms. Northern Thailand, home of the Lanna kingdom, offers more rustic charm, with ancient monuments, and local markets selling distinctive handicrafts.
