Thailand is a land in flux, the traditions of Siam and Bhuddism swept up in the hustle and bustle of a modern economic explosion. The streets are humid and rammed with ringing bicycles, yet the corners of tranquility of this nation state are unparalleled. Bask in the reflection of the shining gold temples of Bangkok's Grand Palace; learn to cook Tom Yam Koong, Thai-style, in Chiang Mai; explore the cultural heritage of the northern hill tribes; relax on the quiet beaches of Ko Chang; catch a rickshaw down to the Mekong at Chiang Saen; get breakfast at the floating market at Damnoen Saduak; or don your flippers and mask for the corals and marine life of Ko Tao.
