Thailand is located in Southeastern Asia, bordering the Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand, southeast of Burma.The terrain of Thailand consists of central plain; Khorat Plateau in the east; mountains elsewhere.
The climate of Thailand is ropical; rainy, warm, cloudy southwest monsoon (mid-May to September); dry, cool northeast monsoon (November to mid-March); southern isthmus always hot and humid.

Spoken and written Thai remain largely incomprehensible to the casual visitor. However, English is widely understood, particularly in Bangkok where it is also the major commercial language. English and other European languages are spoken in most hotels, shops, restaurants, and major tourist destinations. Thai-English road and street signs are also found everywhere.

Throughout her long history, Thailand has absorbed immigrants. Many were skilled as writers, painters, sculptors, dancers, musicians, and architects. These immigrants helped to enrich Thailand's indigenous culture. Thailand's minorities include the Chinese, Thai Malays, and the Laotian.

Throughout its history, Thailand has been characterized by its tolerance for alien religions and beliefs. Although census records that 94% of its populace are Theravada Buddhists, the country has always extended religious freedom to its subjects.

Thai cuisine is distinctive thanks to liberal use of spices subtly combined with herbs and market-fresh ingredients. Moreover, Thai cuisine also combines the best of Chinese and Indian culinary traditions while retaining its own special character.

Chinese food in Thailand, which is normally quite bland, is second to none. Major European, Levantine, Asian, and Oriental cuisine are represented in gourmet restaurants. American and English breakfasts are served in most hotels whilst numerous ubiquitous coffee-shops specialize in European dishes. Western fast food chains, snack bars, and ice-cream parlors have gained increasing popularity with the Thais.
