Thailand is the second most-visited country in Southeast Asia (guess who is first?). Strategically located in the heart of Southeast Asia, Thailand is an appropriate starting place to explore the greater region, such as neighbouring Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia and Malaysia. More importantly, Thailand offers a well-developed tourist infrastructure, such as a well-connected transportation network, an extensive range of accommodation options and beautifully-paved roads (most countries in the region do not have them).
