Thailand is the most popular tourist destination in
South-East Asia, and for a reason. Exotic, yet safe and largely hassle-free;
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.
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 40 baht per day while the nouveau
riche cruise past in their BMWs, and a highly visible sex tourism industry.
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.  History
