Thailand is a hugely popular tourist destination. Almost one million Britains visit Thailand for tourism purposes each year with nearly half being return visitors. More UK nationals visit Thailand than any other nation within the EU.
Thailand has long been known for the rich diversity of its attractions, but the continuing development of the Kingdom’s tourism means that there are still more waiting to be discovered.
A land of golden temples stunning tropical beaches and forested hills, Thailand is a veritable oasis in an increasingly hectic world. Secure in its devotion to the Buddhist faith and to its beloved King, it merges a centuries-old culture with way of life that preserves its identity and gracious natural hospitality.
For sightseeing and travel, Thailand has few equals. From dazzling temples and palaces to awe-inspiring World Heritage Sites; from timeless rural settlements to vibrant resort towns; from idyllic beaches to national parks where wild nature rules, the choice of where to go and what to see is limitless.
