offers every ingredient for a truly memorable holiday. Forested mountains in the
north. Lush tropical beaches in the south. Ancient temples and historical
wonders scattered the length and breadth of the kingdom. National parks for
those who want something more wild and energetic. Remote islands for those who
want to get away from it all. And whichever experience you choose, one thing
remains constant is the distinctive Thai ambience, shaped by the peace-loving
Buddhist culture, the long-standing tradition of hospitality, and the Thais'
love of fun.
Thais celebrate their past, their religion, their great historical and cultural
events, the changes of the seasons, and the traditions of the agricultural
calendar. Some festivals are national events or holidays and celebrated
nationwide. Others are confined to one province or locality. Some are truly
spectacular. Others are more modest. Most are characterized by good humor and
religious devotion. All offer colorful insights into the lifestyle and culture.
Many festival dates change each year, as they follow the lunar calendar.
