Thailand ~ Honeymoon

Thailand or Siam as it was called up until 1939 has never been colonized by a foreign power and with a kaleidoscope of different cultures, religion, cuisine and scenery, there are few parts of the world that conjure up such colorful and magical images as Thailand. Thailand shares borders with Malaysia, Myanmar (Burma), Laos and Cambodia. The region offers something for every taste and the warmest welcome imaginable. Thailand signifying “land of free men “has a population of 62 million of which 91% are Buddhists. For those seeking pure relaxation, Thailand’s coastline and islands are heavenly, with glorious sun-soaked, white sandy beaches lapped by crystal clear warm waters.

Bangkok is known as “The Venice of the Orient” and has a mix of magnificent temples, neon lights, bars and restaurants. During your visit you could explore rural Bangkok by boat and see the fascinating way of life along the waterways known as Klongs. Created as the Thai capital in 1782 by the first monarch of the present Chakri dynasty, Bangkok is a national treasure house and Thailand’s spiritual, cultural, political, commercial, educational and diplomatic centre.
