THE LAND OF SMILES
In many places of the world where life is defined by the hustle and bustle of the modern world, not many are graced with the comfort of a beaming mood. But despite the reality of this notion, there is still a country that is home to many smiling people, it earned the moniker, “Land of the Smiles”—the Kingdom of Thailand.
But, while the season in the country is mostly sunny year-round, it is not the absence of gloom that makes its people as smiley as they portray to be. The Thais, in general, just loves to smile on many occasions even though the meaning behind the gesture is not all the same.
Although Thailand may hold the title as such, it is the people of Norway, arguably, who deserve the title given the quality of living in this prosperous European nation.
A Sought-after Place
Formerly known as Siam until 1939, Thailand is a country in the southeast that is renowned by many tourists for its well-rounded multi-faceted aspects that appeal to many travelers.
So, how does this predominantly Buddhist country stands in the global ranking in tourism? As a country, Thailand currently holds the 9th position as the most-visited country in the world while France and the United States hold the first and second positions, respectively. However, as far as having a city deemed most traveled by tourists, Thailand has Bangkok which ranks as number one.
Intrinsic Appeal for Tourists
Although the idea of inhabiting a people who have the tendency to smile may be pleasing for most people, it is not the smiles of the people per se that is the charm of the country for tourists.
For one, tourists coming from countries with better economic standing find many things in this Buddhist kingdom to be relatively cheap. A single dollar can exchange for some Thai baht which can afford quality products on the street or any other business establishments.
If you are not too picky at your temporary place of stay, there are many lodging in the country that can accommodate at a measly $20 per night of stay. Other pieces of stuff that cater to needs are also affordable as well which leads to the next point, which is food.
Foods, in Thailand, are as diverse as the many cultures which comprise it. There are literally so many dishes to choose from, you would not be eating the same foods twice. Although generally known for its spicy dishes, some areas in the country offer spicier cuisines than others which makes each place worth venturing for their foods alone.
But, of course, no travel in a country deemed exotic by foreigners is complete without seeing the culture of its people and the many renowned places of visit. From the outset, the Thai culture is heavily influenced by the Buddhist faith as seen in their architecture and their way of life.
Yet, there are also those places that are neither affected by human influence nor religion which defines Thailand as a geographic location set apart from its neighbors and other countries from far-flung places.
