Thailand, officially the Kingdom of Thailand and historically known as Siam, is a country in Southeast Asia on the Indochinese Peninsula.

Bangkok (กรุงเทพมหานคร), officially known in Thai as Krung Thep Maha Nakhon and colloquially as Krung Thep, is the capital and most populous city of Thailand. It is among the world’s top tourist destination.

National parks in Thailand are defined as an area that contains natural resources of ecological importance or unique beauty, or flora and fauna of special importance. Thailand’s protected areas include 156 national parks, 58 wildlife sanctuaries, 67 non-hunting areas, and 120 forest parks. They cover almost 31 percent of the kingdom’s territory.

Thai culture and traditions incorporate a great deal of influence from India, China, Cambodia, and the rest of Southeast Asia.

The country’s most prevalent religion is Theravada Buddhism, which is an integral part of Thai identity and culture. Active participation in Buddhism is among the highest in the world. Thailand has the second-largest number of Buddhists in the world after China.

Asian tourists primarily visit Thailand for Bangkok and the historical, natural, and cultural sights in its vicinity.

Western tourists not only visit Bangkok and surroundings, but in addition many travel to the southern beaches and islands.

The north is the chief destination for trekking and adventure travel with its diverse ethnic minority groups and forested mountains. The region with the least amount of tourists is Isan.
