once called Siam, is today widely
known as 'The Land of Smiles',
an accurate description, as visitors from abroad soon discover. Covering
an area of 518,000 square kilometres
(about the same size as France), Thailand has a population of some
61 million people, of whom over ten percent live in the capital city,
Thai people are
believed to have migrated
originally from southern
China, but archaeological
remains have been discovered
dating civilisation here back
over six thousand years. Over 95 percent of the
population are Buddhist, with
Muslim, Christian, Hindu and
animist minorities. Their
national language is Thai,
although many speak local
and Chinese dialects. English
is also widely spoken, especially in cities and towns.
Airport tax: B500 for international flights. Free baggage trolleys are available at airports.
Airport caution: In Bangkok, unauthorised taxi and sightseeing touts may seek to divert arriving passengers from their pre-arrangedl holiday travel plans. If in doubt, ask to see airport staff authority.

money changers giving better rates than hotels. Major international
credit cards are widely accepted in hotels, restaurants and shops.
