Did you know that Thailand is the only Southeast Asian country that has never been colonized by an European country?
In fact, in the Thai language, the name of the country is Prathet Thai which means “land of the free.” Thailand is made up of approximately 1,430 islands. Many of the islands have become famous for being featured in Hollywood films. A popular habit of return visitors is to “try out” new islands to find their favorite.
In Thailand you can find both the smallest and the largest creatures, everything from the bumblebee bat to the largest fish, the whale shark. People associate elephants with Thailand. There are more than 5,000 found there (though more than half are domesticated). Over a hundred years ago, though, there used to be about 100,000 with about one fifth of them wild. What most pepole don´t know is that hundred years ago nearly all of northern Thailand was covered in hardwood forest. Today unfortunatley just a quarter of that forest is left. Therefore Thailand have banned logging.
In Thailand there is about 35 000 temples in Thailand. But show respect when ou visiting them, it requires modest clothing, meaning no shorts, crop tops or sleeveless shirts.
