Besides the good food, enchanting temples, and low cost of living, there are many other reasons Thailand is affectionately known as “The Land of Smiles.”


Thailand, formerly known as Siam, remains the only country in Southeast Asia that has not been colonized!


Bangkok is one of the most visited cities in the world – and brings in a lot of revenue.


Thailand has been a shooting location for many Hollywood films that have made movie-lovers smile throughout the years – including James Bond’s The Man with the Golden Gun and Tomorrow Never Dies; Bridget Jones: Edge of Reason; The Hangover Part II, and many more!


Every year, Thailand hosts the world’s largest water fight during the Thai New Year, called Songkran. For three days, the entire country bands together for a giant water fight. Originally inspired by the use of water to clean and purify temples, buckets of water, super soakers, and water balloons galore have become a must on this fun and festive day. So, if you visit Thailand during Songkran, be sure to keep all your belongings safe in a dry bag – because you’re bound to get drenched!


With a population over 70 million, Thailand has a literacy rate of 93.77% – now that’s definitely something to boast!


With 127 national parks, Thailand houses more than 10% of the wildlife in the world. Elephants, tigers, bears, binturong, pangolin, monkeys, spiders, scorpions, leopards, snakes … the list goes on! This happy country is also a habitat to 1,076 species of birds – of which 100 of them are extremely rare. How cool is that?


In case you haven’t heard, you can “shop ‘til you drop in Thailand!” With a variety of shopping markets and high-quality malls, there are plenty of places to get the best bang for your Baht in Thailand. You can find cheap clothing, Thai silk, jewelry, well-crafted home goods, and even authentic Thai spa products like essential oils, body scrubs, and exotic soaps.

More than anything, Thailand offers stunningly diverse landscapes throughout the nation. From magnificent mountains to jungles with breathtaking waterfalls, to remote villages, to beautiful tea plantations, to some of the most splendid beaches on Earth, you will absolutely fall in love with all the beauty in Thailand.
