The Kingdom of Thailand draws more visitors than any other country in Southeast Asia with its virtually irresistible combinations of breathtaking natural beauty, inspirating temples, the ruins of fabulour ancient kingdoms, renowned hospitality, and robust cuisine. From the stupa-studded mountains of Mae Hong Son to the verdant limestone islands of the Andaman Sea, from the pulse pounding dance clubs of Bangkok to tranquil villages moored along the Mekong River, the country offers something for every type of traveller.

There are total 76 provinces in Thailand as of today, which are gathered into 5 groups of provinces by location. There are also 2 special governed districts: the capital Bangkok (Krungthep Mahanakhon) and Pattaya, of which Bangkok is at provincial level and thus often counted as a 76th province. Each province is divided into smaller districts. As of 2006 there are 877 districts (Amphoe) and the 50 districts of Bangkok (Khet). Some parts of the provinces bordering Bangkok are also referred to as Greater Bangkok (Pari monthon). These provinces include Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani, Samut Prakan, Nakhon Pathom and Samut Sakhon. The name of each province's capital city (Mueang) is the same as that of the province.

Travelling around in this tropical country is comfortable, down-to-earth and exceptionally good value. The extensive rail, bus and air networks makes every place that is worth visiting, easily accessible. Many people find that whatever time they plan for a Thailand trip seems to fall short, given the country's multifaceted culture and the numerous things to go and do or see.

Whether in the tranquillity of a mountain-top temple, the curry-scented atmosphere of a riverside café, the raucous din of a festival procession, or in some other passing experience, somewhere, sometimes, every visitor to Thailand intersects with a moment where the inexplicable heart of the Thai experience enters the soul. From that point onward, the most difficult part of being in the country is negotiating how much longer you can manage to stay, and how soon you will return.
