Thailand is among the world's most intriguing nations in terms of both natural and cultural resources.
Its centuries-old traditions in some places remain unchanged by the hands of time, as do the pristine rainforests and beaches,
many of which are still in their primeval states.
Sunny, azure beaches with rich reefs are the perfect sanctuary for diving and snorkeling, or for
just lazaing on the beach under the palm fronds and enjoying the unspoiled beauty. Thailand's coastline is among the most
picturesque and biodiverse of any on earth.
The rainforests are just as pristine, boasting some of the most incredible variety of flora and fauna
to be found on the globe. Among these are a huge variety of lush rainforest vegetation and a plethora of animal species including
tigers, monkeys, elephants, monitors, and much, much more.
Thailand's cultural resources are something special indeed. Standing out on the horizons are temples
of all shapes and sizes in eclectic abundance. These are contrasted with the lights and dazzle of Bangkok in perpetual motion.
Ubiquitous among these contrasting surroundings are lovely indigenous people whose dress and dance are nothing short of majestic.
Yet all of these resources are under a barrage of threats. These include illegal logging, illegal
pet trade, the displacement of indigenous people by mining companies, pollution, disruption of the environment by gas and
oil companies, etc.
