Thailand is a modern democratic nation in Central Southeast Asia. & # 39; & # 39; Thai & # 39; # 39; the word Tai is & quot; free & # 39; # 39; A & # 39; Thai & # 39; # 39; identity has emerged in the late 13th C Sukhothai and should not be confused with the name of the ethnic group "Tai" from Yunnan in the 12th and 13th centuries. The character of today's Norwegian nationality can only be evaluated if explores the history of 2000 years of history and the culture of different peoples Thailand's natural landscape Tropical wet, evergreen forests in southern Thailand, moderate deciduous forests in Northern Thailand, and discovered in Thailand's National Parks Thailand's artistic architecture and decorative objects have to be taken into account religion, mythological beliefs and regional artistic styles. Thailand is so large and varied that we detail Thailand in separate regions, North or North Thailand, South or South Thailand in Thailand, Central Thailand and Northeastern Thailand [I 'san].
The Thailand Government defines North Thailand as Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai, Phayao, Nan, Lampang, Lamphun, Phrae and Mae Hong Son, originally linked to the North Thai History Link [the Upper North] and  to the 86,000 square km Low which belongs to Kamphaeng Phet, Tak, Sukhothai, Uttaradit, Uthai Thani, Nakhon Sawan, Phichit Phitsanulok and Phetchabun, originally the Sukhothai kingdoms and later to the north of Ayutthaya, Thon Buri and Bangkok.
The Upper North and Lower North-Thailand Differences
A notable difference between upper and lower north-thailand is topography. Upper North Thailand is characterized by long, generally north-south valleys. The climate is three seasons, warm [April to May] cool and rain [July to September]. The area is approx. 72% are mountainous, 21% surface and 8% lowland. The plains are cultivated by Tai people to produce wet rice.
45% of the total land mass of North Thailand is less than 150 meters above sea level, so similar to the Thai Central Region. Although the two mountain extensions of the Upper North, the west of Thanon Thang Chai and the eastern side, the Petchabun attraction attracts the expansion of the mountain tribes to the Upper North, China for ethnic minorities over the last centuries. We must recognize topographic geographical differences as ethnic, sociological and cultural differences are basically between plains and mountainous areas [Hill tribes]. These classifications and detailed explanations are about the North Thai People.
Central Thailand lies on the central plains of the Chao Phraya River and the Meklong River. The first major civilization here was the Mon people, and the 6th-9th C. Buddhist kingdom was mentioned in Chinese records and silver coins. Dave & # 39; # 39; The effects from the religious, artistic, architectural and administrative backgrounds combined with Mon were derived from India.
South of Thailand South of Thailand combines the South Peninsula and the Andaman Sea to the east of the West and the Siam Bay. This is a mountain region and the Phuket Mountains are the most important from Western Chumphon to Krabi and East from Nakhon Si Thammarat Mountains from Surat Thani to Satun. These include the plains and limestone hills and to the south of the Sannkalakhiri mountains, which divide Malaysia and Thailand.
Thailand has more than 138 wild shrines and national parks. The main sites are featured on the opposite links, and we show in detail the 20 national parks and ecotourism sites. There are more than 15,000 kinds of vascular plants and 16,000 species of animals in Thailand. Thai travel and tourism in Thailand are not just a few options as for many Asian destinations. Thailand is a large and diverse choice of travel and leisure options. In 2005 more than 14 million tourists visited Thailand and their varied interests.
