Tropical beaches and beautiful temples

Thailand, a nearly 1,000-year-old kingdom with a population and landmass to match the UK, is a land of plenty. Old-growth jungle cloaks the mountains. Brilliant beaches rim hundreds of islands. The scent of tropical aromatics — galangal and coconut, finger root and bird's eye chilli — steam from endless markets. As far as the eye can see, rice fields shimmer.
