Thailand

Situated in a tropical landscape, Thailand is the scene of stark contrasts. The wealth of historical heritage and natural resources of this proud nation Buddhist adds to the charm of a country that today is characterized by a rapid development of industrial property. Now intriguing and quiet, now resplendent and elusive, Thailand is always irresistible.
