Land of Smile
Thailand is uniquely the only country that has not been colonized in Southeast Asia. Its culture is delicately tuned to the time-honoured Buddhist’s nonconfrontational approach to life, and ideals of charity, tolerance and lovingkindness. Thailand is a country of scenic diversity and ancient traditions, of tranquil temples and modern urban excitement. With independent history going back more than seven centuries, it has managed to absorb a variety of cultural influences and blend them into something uniquely and memorably Thai. Whatever your interests you’ll find this a unique land, a place of kaleidoscopic wonders unseen elsewhere.

Thailand Map and Infos
A top tourist destination as a result of its plentiful natural attractions including, white sandy beaches, crystal clear water, extensive coral reefs, numerous caves and waterfalls, and over 130 islands, including Koh Lanta and the jewels of the Andaman coast, the six islands of Mu Koh Phi Phi National Park.
Krabi, a province on southern Thailand’s Andaman coast, is an almost otherworldly region of labyrinthine archipelagos, where islands seem to erupt vertically out of the sea and secluded beaches are only accessible by colorfully adorned long tail boats. Krabi’s myriad of bays and coves have sheltered pirates, merchants, and sea gypsies for thousands of years and archaeological evidence indicates that Krabi was originally inhabited as early as 25,000 – 35,000 years ago.
