. . . exotic yet accessible
Thailand lies between the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand, bordering Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia. It is exotic yet accessible, with something for every visitor. You can relax on white sand beaches, hike through vast areas of tropical forest, or live it up in the humming capital of Bangkok.
There is much to discover in Thailand - a country that offers a huge range of new experiences in sights, sounds, tastes, and outlook. But different as it may be from your home, Thailand is probably the easiest exotic country for visitors. The people are friendly, leisure activities are well organized and the food is great.
Thai food is renowned around the world for its fine blend of spices and ingredients. Standing at the crossroads of India, China and Asian Oceania, Thailand has adapted cooking techniques and ingredients from each of these major culinary delights. Add to this the past influences of empire builders from the Middle East and Southern Italy and you have a real unique flavour. The beauty of Thai cooking is that to understand it means it can easily be adapted to European dishes.
