"A train ride across 'Death Railway'. This is the legacy stretch of wooden track that hugs the cliff and run alongside the famous River Kwai. Built on the backs of WWII prisoners (POWs) during Japanese occupation in Thailand, today it is a serene ride through the beautiful countryside of Kanchanaburi."
If I were given a choice to pick one word to describe Thailand, I would say it is 'amazing'. No other word could elaborate better for this kingdom as one can find almost everything under the sun in Thailand. Be it a thick tropical jungle, pristine beaches, deep blue sea, scuba diving, heritage, ancient temples, cultural, fine crafts/arts, shopping, entertainment, vibrant nightlife or exotic food, Thailand has it all. An interesting fact, Thailand or formerly known as Siam is the only country in South East Asia that is never colonized by any European force.
Despite the heavy influx of tourists each year, Thailand retains its Thainess charm and the people being one of their strengths in tourism services are never short of smiles. Thailand is a country where one always finds many reasons to go back and again!
