The Land of Smiles, where 'Sanuk' is a way of life. Although no direct translation exists for Sanuk the closest meaning is to have a good time, to have fun, to enjoy oneself and to derive pleasure and joy from something. It is almost a rule of living for Thai people that whatever they do, it has to be sanuk. It stands to reason that Thai New Year is spent in a collective drenching in a country-wide water fight that lasts for 3- 5 days.
Thailand - home to heavenly resorts and serene Buddhist temples; the hottest spicy food, spa sanctuaries and bustling markets; where aromas of lemongrass and coconut fill the air and the gracious and gentle people greet you with a Wai - a prayer-like greeting of closed palms.
Thailand - lotus flowers, orchids, all-day and night shopping and searing humidity.
Thailand - where creativity and design knows no bounds.
Why do we love Thailand so? Because to us, the Land of Smiles is also the Land of Contrasts. Serene one minute, noisy and smelly the next. Some of the world's most beautiful beaches go hand in hand with the seediest Red Light Districts. You may feel ripped off by a market trader who charges you higher due to your Farang status but shortly after you'll meet a Thai friend who will will welcome you into their family and share fabulous food with you. So many contradictions, so very Thailand.
