Check out these articles from the Globetrooper Team in this country:

This Southeast Asian country has steadily become one of the most-visited countries by tourists. The rich culture and history makes Thailand a very intriguing destination for vacationers. Its diverse culture appeals to most tourists looking for a wonderful time off. This country also offers excellent and world-class accommodations and tourist spots that ensure a fantastic time for visitors. Thailand is certainly a country you should visit. If you are looking for a great Asian getaway, go and get your flights to Thailand.

Thailand is a country in Southeast Asia with coasts on the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand. It borders Myanmar (Burma) to the north-west, Laos to the north-east, Cambodia to the south-east and Malaysia to the south. With great food, a tropical climate, fascinating culture and great beaches, Thailand is a magnet for travellers the world over.

Thailand is the most popular tourist destination in Southeast Asia, and for a reason. You can find almost anything here: thick jungle as green as can be, crystal blue beaches that feel more like a warm bath than a swim in the ocean, unusual cafés where you can play online poker whilst chatting to the locals, and food that can curl your nose hairs while tap dancing across your taste buds.

Exotic, yet safe; cheap, yet equipped with every modern amenity you need, there is something for every interest and every price bracket, from beach front backpacker bungalows to some of the best luxury hotels in the world. And despite the heavy flow of tourism, Thailand retains its quintessential Thainess, with a culture and history all its own and a carefree people famed for their smiles and their fun-seeking sanuk lifestyle.

Many travellers come to have Thailand holidays and extend their stay well beyond their original plans and others never find a reason to leave. Whatever your cup of tea is, they know how to make it in Thailand. This is not to say that Thailand doesn't have its downsides, including the considerable growing pains of an economy where an agricultural laborer is lucky to earn 100 baht per day while the nouveau riche cruise past in their BMWs, Bangkok, the capital, is notorious for its traffic jams and rampant development has wrecked much of once-beautiful Pattaya and Phuket. In heavily touristed areas, some lowlifes have made scamming tourists into an art form.
