The Venice of the East

The Kingdom of Thailand is the only Southeast Asian nation never colonized by European powers; its very name means “land of the free.”

In the bustling, modern capital of Bangkok, traditional culture is ever apparent in the smiles of its gracious people, the eye-catching Buddhist temples that seem to be around every corner, and life along the canals, where the pace is slower, and a vanishing lifestyle can be observed.

Thai food is a not-to-be-missed delight, with tantalizing, multilayered tastes of sweet, salt, bitter, and spicy. And shop you must—for lovely arts and crafts, house wares, and vibrantly colored Thai silk.
