Thailand is a country located in South Asia, and is one of the main tourist centers of the planet. Every year, this tropical kingdom is visited by about 40 million foreigners, attracted by local attractions: ancient architectural monuments, magnificent sandy beaches, beautiful places of colorful subequatorial nature. The country has an ancient history spanning eight centuries. The state of the Thais was founded in 1238 and constantly expanded in wars with the neighboring states of the Burmese, Vietnamese and Khmers. In the 19th century Siam, as Thailand was then called, turned out to be the only country in Southeast Asia that retained its independence and successfully resisted European expansion. Here, all these centuries, a unique Thai culture has constantly developed, which included authentic national traditions, special architecture and art.
