Thailand The Definition or is there one
American Heritage Dictionary describes Thailand thus:
“A country of Southeast Asia on the Gulf of Thailand (formerly the Gulf of Siam), an arm of the South China Sea. Various Thai kingdoms were founded from the 13th century on, frequently coming into conflict with neighboring Burmese and Cambodian powers. Siam remained an absolute monarchy until 1932, when the king was compelled to accept a constitution, and the country was renamed Thailand in 1939. Thailand was occupied by the Japanese in World War II, and most of its numerous postwar governments were controlled by the military. Bangkok is the capital and the largest city.”and…
Lonely Planet has this to say about Thailand:
“The Kingdom of Thailand draws more visitors than any other country in South East Asia with its irresistible combination of breathtaking natural beauty, inspiring temples, renowned hospitality, robust cuisine and ruins of fabulous ancient kingdoms. Few countries are so well endowed. From the stupa-studded mountains of Mae Hong Son and the verdant limestone islands of the Andaman Sea, to the pulse-pounding dance clubs of Bangkok and the tranquil villages moored along the Mekong River, Thailand offers something for every type of traveller.”
And, some just call it The Big Mango!
Brief but precise; if you haven’t been to this country of temples of a unique Thai architecture dotting the landscape of a diverse culture, it may be a litte hard to conceive so much of what was said in so few lines.
Golf Vacation Packages & Holiday in Thaiand:
In Southeast Asia and the Far East, Thailand has to be the country to visit for a once-in-a-lifetime golf experience. Golf is played in a delightful tropical climate all year round. As one of the world’s top tourism destinations, it has all the attractions and the facilities to keep drawing millions of overseas visitors, not least golfers, year after year. With more than 200 golf courses, mostly located in the more popular tourist destinations like Bangkok, Chiangmai, Pattaya, Phuket and Hua Hin, golf in Thailand has been one of Asia’s best kept secret. Many has been designed by famous names in the sport like Jack Nicklaus, Greg Norman, Nick Faldo, Robert Trent Jones and Gary Player, just to name a few. You will find superbly maintained and manicured courses, with impressive Club houses offering excellent facilities in most of these golf clubs.
Thailand is a country rich in history and culture. Your golf programme is therefore always specially designed to provide ample opportunity for sightseeing and shopping at amazingly attractive prices. A re-juvenating traditional Thai massage or reflexology massage, relax by the pool or taking an elephant ride, these are some of the popular activities well suited for in-between rounds of golf.
Most festivals are Buddhism-related and follow a lunar calendar. Songkran, or loosely known among most foreign tourists as the Water Festival, is celebrated in April by sprinkling water over hands, and generally tossing a lot of water in the air for fun. You haven’t been out of the house on the day if you do not get soaked. The sowing and harvesting of rice have given rise to a cycle of festivals. To start off, there’s the official rice-planting season in May in which the King participates in an ancient ritual in Sanam Luang, or the Royal Ground, right in front of the Royal Palace in Banglamphu; a Rocket Festival is held in May in the northeast, using a mixture of bamboo and gunpowder to plead to the sky to send rain for the new rice season; and the rice harvest from September through to May leads to joyous local celebrations throughout the country.
The Festival of the Nine Kings, most popular in the provinces of Phuket and Trang and which is otherwise known to Farangs (Western foreigners) as the Vegetarian Festival during which devout followers go on vegetarian diet only throughout the festival period, runs for the first nine days of the Chinese Lunar calendar (mostly in October). Merit-making processions as well as bare-foot crossing of fire pyres are the most visible expressions of this festival. There are also ceremonies at Chinese temples devoted solely to the Nine Kings. In November, the Elephant Festival in Surin is a popular festival. Perhaps one of the most important festivals in Thailand is the Loi Krathong Festival, held after the rainy season (usually in October). Candle-lit floats are cast into waterways to bring good wishes to the Gods in far-away lands.
The best time to visit the country is from November to February when northerly winds cool and bring drier air to the region. This is followed by a higher temperature from March to June after which the monsoon rain arrives and lasts until September/October.
These days, tourist arrivals no longer so much conform to the pattern of the holiday period in the traditional source countries. What more with the on-set of no-frills air-travels in many countries, any time of the year could be a good time for the country’s tourist industry depending on where the tourists originate.
Golf Course Designers let loose…
