Thailand is one of the most celebrated destinations in Southeast Asia, and it’s easy to understand why. Over 1,000 square kilometers of urban sprawl are abuzz 24/7 in the capital city of Bangkok, whose size and population dwarf that of the country’s other urban centers.
More than 2,000 miles of coastline make Thailand a dream come true for beach lovers, with enviable beach resorts like Phuket, Krabi, and Koh Samui boasting turquoise waters and ruggedly exotic scenery. Fascinating landmarks like the 18th-century Grand Palace and the White Temple bring visitors from all over the world hoping to catch a glimpse of these site’s opulent architecture and artistry.
But it’s the fresh, perfectly spiced cuisine that sticks with travelers long after they’ve departed. Discover the magnetism of this one-of-a-kind destination!
