5C5G Guide > Thailand

Thailand, the most-visited country in Southeast Asia, enchants travelers with its diverse cuisine, vibrant night markets, traditional Thai massages, and stunning natural beauty. Formerly known as Siam, it remains the only uncolonized nation in the region. In 1939, its name was changed to Thailand, meaning "Land of Freedom".

Beyond the bustling metropolis of Bangkok, coastal towns like Pattaya, Hua Hin, Phuket, Krabi, and Koh Samui offer affordable seaside resorts for a delightful beach getaway. History enthusiasts can explore ancient capitals like Ayutthaya and Sukhothai, as well as Chiang Mai, the former capital of the Lanna Kingdom (1296-1775), to delve into northern Thailand's unique culture.
