ไหว้  - Welcome to Thailand - Land of a Thousand Smiles 

Thailand or Siam, as it was formerly known, is the world's 51st largest country by total area, totalling 513,120 square kilometres (198,120 sq mi); it is situated at the centre of the Indochinese peninsula in Mainland Southeast Asia; and is bordered by Myanmar, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia and India. 

image

Thailand has hundreds of islands both in the Gulf of Thailand and in the Andaman Sea. The islands of the central Gulf of Thailand are mostly located near the coast. Some of the island groups in Thailand come in clusters of numerous individual islands: Phang Nga Bay has 67, the Mu Ko Chang National Park has 52, Tarutao National Marine Park has 51, and Mu Ko Ang Thong National Park has 42.  Formerly most of the islands in Thailand were uninhabited, today, many have been developed for tourism.

image

The population is largely rural, concentrated in the rice-growing areas of the central, northeastern, and northern regions.  The urban population is concentrated mostly in and around the Bangkok Metropolitan Area.  Bangkok is the capital and largest city, it is the political, commercial, industrial, and cultural hub of the country.  The Chatuchak Weekend Market in Bangkok is possibly the largest market in the world, selling everything from household items to live and sometimes endangered animals.

image

The official language is Thai; it is the principal language of education and government, and is spoken throughout the country. There are also several other minority languages, Lao, Kelantan-Pattani Malay, as well as varieties of Chinese spoken by the large Thai Chinese population.  Numerous tribal languages are also spoken. English is a mandatory school subject, but the number of fluent speakers remains low, especially outside the cities.

Climate
Thailand's climate is controlled by tropical monsoons, with an annual temperature of 28°C and high humidity.  The weather is generally hot and humid across most of the country for most of the year. The landlocked provinces are determined by three seasons; the hot season (March to May), the rainy season (May to November) and the cool season (November to February).  The southern, coastal regions of Thailand feature only two; (rainy season and dry season) making the weather in Thailand quite easy to understand and plan a trip around.

image


Culture
Thai culture is deeply influenced by religion, the belief system and values of Buddhism play a huge role in day-to-day life. Throughout the country, the most important values are respect, self-control, and a non-confrontational attitude.  Respect towards ancestors is an essential part of Thai spiritual practice, they have a strong sense of hospitality and generosity, but also a strong sense of social hierarchy.  Seniority is paramount in Thai culture, with elders traditionally ruling family decisions or ceremonies. Older siblings have duties to younger ones.


The traditional Thai greeting, the wai, is generally offered first by the younger of the two people meeting, with their hands pressed together, fingertips pointing upwards as the head is bowed to touch face to fingertips, usually coinciding with the spoken words "sawatdi khrap" for male speakers, and "sawatdi kha" for females.  Children are taught to wai before they start school, the wai is a sign of respect and reverence for another, similar to the namaste greeting of India and Nepal. 

Taboos in Thailand include touching someone's head or pointing with the feet, as the head is considered the most sacred and the foot the lowest part of the body. This tradition has been greatly influenced by India, China, Cambodia, and the rest of Southeast Asia.

image

Education
In Thailand education is provided by a well-organized school system of kindergartens, primary, lower secondary and upper secondary schools, numerous vocational colleges, and universities. Education is compulsory up to and including age 14, with the government providing free education through to age 17.  The private sector of education is well developed and significantly contributes to the overall provision of education which the government would not be able to meet with public establishments.

image

Religion
Thailand's national religion, Theravada Buddhism, is central to modern Thai identity and culture, with active participation being among the hightest in the world. Thai Buddhism has evolved over time to include many regional beliefs originating from Hinnduism, Animism, as well as ancestor worship.  Muslims are the second largest religious group in Thailand, concentrated mostly in the southern provinces.

image

Tourism
Thailand is a popular tourist destination, well known for its warm, friendly people, amazing food, hundreds of tropical islands, beautiful sandy beaches, stunning national parks, opulent royal palaces, numerous ancient ruins and ornate temples, museums, and also several World Heritage sites.  It offers quiet canals, riverside communities, hill tribes, flora and bird life, exotic animals, diving and archaeological sites, treks and tours, city nightlife, spas, cooking, buddhism and thai massage classes. Truly something for everyone. 

image

The best time to visit is between November and March, when the thai people are celebrating national and regional festivals, this is when the weather is at its best.  Asian tourists primarily visit Thailand for Bangkok and the historical, natural, and cultural sights in its vicinity while western tourists not only visit Bangkok and surroundings, but in addition often travel to the southern beaches and islands. The north is the chief destination for trekking and adventure travel with its diverse ethnic minority groups and forested mountains. Isan in the northeast hosts the fewest tourists.

image

Thailand's national symbol, the Asian elephant has dropped to an estimated 2,000 – 3,000, today there are more elephants in captivity than in the wild.  Although it is illegal, hunters have also decimated the populations of tigers, leopards, and other large cats, Asiatic black bear, Malayan sun bear, King cobras, crocodiles, white-handed lar, pileated gibbon and binturong. They are killed for their pelts or meat, which is considered a delicacy and also for their supposed medicinal properties.

Thai National Dish - Pad Thai

Cuisine
Thai and Indonesian cuisines are closely related to each other, with both having some of the same culinary influences.  They share many of the same ingredients, cooking styles and dishes because of their locality and climate; although these dishes may have slight variations. 

Each country in the world has its own food profile that reflects its culture, environment, ingenuity and values. Thai and Indonesian cooking is not about simplicity; it is about the juggling of disparate elements to create a harmonious finish; placing emphasis on lightly prepared dishes with strong aromatic components and a spicy edge. 


Thai cuisine blends five fundamental tastes: sweet, spicy, sour, bitter, and salty and is known for its enthusiastic use of fresh (rather than dried) herbs and spices.  Their cuisine have strong Chinese, Portuguese, Spanish, Indian, Persian, and Americas influences.  It also has huge influences from it's neigbors; Burma, northern and southern Loas, Cambodia, Vietnam, Malaysia and Indonesia.  They have mutually influenced one another over the course of many centuries, often sharing the same cultural background and ethnicity on both sides of the border, as well as climate and geography. 

The staple food in Thailand is rice, particularly a jasmine varitey rice, which is served at most meals.  A thai meal normally consists of rice with several dishes which form a harmonious contrast of flavors and textures as well as preparation methods.

Traditionally, a meal would have at least five elements: a dip or relish for raw or cooked vegetables (spicy chili sauce)  or (relish made of raw or cooked chilies and other ingredients, which are mashed together), or a dip enriched with coconut milk; these are the most crucial component of any Thai meal.  The other elements would include a clear soup, a curry or stew, a deep-fried dish and a stir fried dish of meat, fish, seafood, or vegetables.

Welcome to Indonesia - The Indian Island 

The Republic of Indonesia, is a nation in Southeast Asia made up of thousands of volcanic islands, it is situated between the Indian and Pacific Oceans.  Indonesia shares land borders with Malaysian Borneo, Papua New Guinea and East Timor, it also shares maritime borders across narrow straits with Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines and Palau to the north, and Australia to the south, and the indian territory of the Andaman and Nicobar Islands. 

image

With 13,466 islands, measuring 1,919,440 square kilometres (741,050 sq mi) and an estimated population of over 258 million people, it is the largest archipelagic country in the world.  About 6,000 of the islands are inhabited and are scattered over both sides of the equator. The largest Islands are Java, Sumatra, Borneo, New Guinea, and Sulawesi.  Indonesia's size, tropical climate, and archipelagic geography, support the world's second highest level of biodiversity.

image

Indonesia has a range of sea and coastal ecosystems, including beaches, sand dunes, estuaries, mangroves, coral reefs, seagrass beds, coastal mudflats, tidal flats, algal beds and small island ecosystems. That said, forests cover approximately 60% of the country. Throughout Indonesia you will find over 600 bird species and unique flora and fauna which are a mixture of Asian and Australsain species.

image

On the island of Java lies Indonesia's vibrant, sprawling capital, Jakarta, and the city of Yogyakarta, known for gamelan music and traditional puppetry. Java is the world's most populous island containing more than half of the country's population.  Indonesia consists of hundreds of distinct native ethnic and linguistic groups, of which the Javanese are the largest and are politically dominant. 

image

With more than 700 regional languages, the official language in Indonesia is Bahasa Indonesia, a variant of Malay, which borrows heavily from local languages such as Javanese, Sundanese, Minangkabau, etc.  Bahasa Indonesia is universally taught in schools and is primarily used in commerce, administration, education and the media.  Consequently, it is spoken by nearly every Indonesian though most speak other languages, with Javanese usually the first language learned.

Climate
Split by the equator, indonesia has an almost entirely tropical climate, with the coastal plains averaging 28°C, the inland and mountain areas averaging 26°C, and the higher mountain regions, 23°C. The area's relative humidity ranges between 70 and 90 percent.  Temperatures vary little from season to season, and Indonesia experiences relatively little change in the length of daylight hours from one season to the next; the difference between the longest day and the shortest day of the year is only forty-eight minutes, which allows crops to be grown all year.

image

Indonesia experiences a number of climates, mostly tropical rainforest (highest precipitation), followed by tropical monsoon and tropical savanna (lowest precipitation). The extreme variations in rainfall are linked with the monsoons. Generally speaking, there is a dry season (June to October), influenced by the Australian continental air masses, and a rainy season (November to March) that is caused by Asia and Pacific Ocean air masses.


image

Culture
The Country's National Motto "Bhinneka Tunggal Ika" - Unity in Diversity - Many Yet One,  articulates the diversity that shapes the country. 
Indonesia has about 300 ethnic groups, each with cultural identities developed over centuries. Traditional Javanese and Balinese dances, for example, contain aspects of Hindu culture and mythology, as do wayang kulit (shadow puppet) performances. 

image

Unesco recognized as Cultural Heritage the following: Wayang puppet theatre, Indonesian kris, batik and angklung, wood carving traditions and traditional carpentry, masonry, stone and woodwork techniques and decorations.  Indonesian batik has become the national costume. Textiles (batik, ikat, ulos and songket) that are created across Indonesia vary in style by region.

image

Education
Eduction is complusory for twelve years and parents may choose between; state-run, non sectarian public schools, private or semi-private religious schools.


image

Religion
The Indonesian archipelago has been an important trade region since the 7th century, trading with China and India. Local rulers gradually absorbed foreign cultural, religious and political models from earlier centuries, thus Hindu and Buddhist kingdoms flourished. Indonesian history has been influenced by foreign powers drawn to its natural resources, Muslim traders and Sufi scholars brought islam, while European powers brought Christianity and fought one another to monopolize trade in the Spice Islands of Maluku.

image

Today, six religions are officially recognised in Indonesia; Islam, Protestantism, Roman Catholicism, Hinduism, Buddism and Confucianism. Indonesia is the world's most populous Muslim majority country.

Tourism
This vast country has much to offer, from natural beauty, historical heritage to cultural diversity.  Indonesia boasts one of the longest coastlines in the world, with beautiful tropical white sand beaches, blue sky, and cultural attractions. These natural attractions are complemented by a rich cultural heritage that reflects Indonesia's dynamic history and ethnic diversity.  The ancient temples, ruins, palaces, state-owned museums, churches, forts and historical colonial buildings and religious festivals with Balinese dance-drama performances are some of the popular destinations for cultural tourism.

image

Indonesia is best known for its island resorts, volcanoes, rainforests, and jungles sheltering elephants, tigers and Komodo dragons. Two of the oldest botanical gardens in Asia are found in Indonesia; with rich collections of tropical plants. There are over 50 National parks, six are World Heritage Sites, each offer different biodiversity.

With 20% of the world's coral reefs (600 coral species), 3,000 different species of fish, deep water trenches, volcanic sea mounts, World War II wrecks, and an endless variety of macro life; scuba diving in Indonesia is excellent, inexpensive and is a memorable experience. Surfing, rafting, hiking and camping are also popular.  Urban tourism activities includes shopping, sightseeing, amusement parks, water parks, resorts, spas, nightlife and entertainment.


image

The national animal of Indonesia is the Komodo Dragon also known as the Komodo Monitor.  It is the largest species of lizard found in the islands (growing to a maximum length of 10 feet and in rare cases weighing up to 150 lbs). As a result of their size, these lizards dominate the ecosystems in which they live.

Many native species (Sumatran elephants, Sumatran tigers, Sumatran rhinoceros, Javan rhinoceros, orangutans and leopards) that were once abundant as far east as Bali, are now listed as endangered or critically endangered with the remaining populations found in national parks  and other conservation areas.

Indonesian National Dish - Tumpeng
  image     
Cuisine
Indonesian cuisine is one of the most vibrant and colorful cuisines in the world, full of intense flavor; it has a fondness for hot, spicy foods.  The dishes have rich flavors most often described as savory, hot, spicy, sweet, salty, sour and bitter.  This cuisine varies greatly by region and has had many different influences (Spanish, Portuguese, Dutch, Indian, Chinese, Polynesian, Melanesian, European and also the Middle East).  Java cuisine is mostly indigenous. 

Indonesian traditional meals usually consists of steamed rice, surrounded by vegetables and soup and meat or fish side dishes. Spices (notably chili), coconut milk, fish and chicken are fundamental ingredients. Nasi goreng, gado-gado, sate, soto and rendang are ubiquitous in the country and are considered national dishes.  The official dish is tumpeng.  

In Indonesia a typical family meal starts with the family members gathered around a table that is filled with steamed rice and several other dishes. Usually the oldest family member or the husband starts the meal, then the rest of the family will help themselves to the different dishes. All of the family members have their own personal plates that are first filled with steamed rice.  Each dish is served in a separate communal large plate or in bowls and each has its own serving spoons, which are used only to take parts of the dishes from the communal plate onto one's own personal plate. 

The main meal is usually cooked in the late morning, and consumed around midday. In many families there is no set meal time when all members are expected to attend. For this reason, most of the dishes are made so that they can remain edible even if left on the table at room temperature for many hours. The same dishes are then re-heated for the final meal in the evening.

Fruit is an important part of the Indonesian diet; eaten fresh, or made into juices, desserts, processed into savory and spicy dishes, fried (bananas), sweetened and preserved, or processed into crispy chips.

rendang (spicy beef dish), Nasi goreng (national rice dish), nasi kuning (rice cooked with coconut milk and turmeric), ketupat (rice steamed in woven packets of coconut fronds), lontong (rice steamed in banana leaves), satay (grilled skewered meat), bakso (meat or fish balls), lumpia goreng (fried spring rolls), soto (national soup), tumpeng (cone shaped rice dish), ayam goreng (fried chicken), ayam bakar (grilled chicken), Mie goreng (fried noodle), rawon (dark beef soup), pandan cake (coconut tarts), pisang goreng (baked banana), gulai (Indonesian curry), mie koclok  - (chicken noodle soup), gudeg - green jack fruit sweet stew, sayur asem (sweet and sour vegetable soup), asinan (salad of pickled vegetables), kerak telor (spiced coconut omelette), klepon (green rice-flour balls with palm sugar filling), serabi (coconut milk pancakes topped with chocolate, banana or jackfruit), sate klopo  (coconut beef satay), semanggi surabaya (marsilea  leaves with spicy sweet potato sauce), pecel lele (deep fried catfish served with rice and sambal), gado-gado  (Vegetarian dishes), karedok (Vegetarian dishes), pecel (Vegetarian dishes), rujak  (Vegetarian dishes)
