Thailand today

The country

 Situated in the heart of Southeast Asia, the Kingdom of Thailand is a natural gateway to Indochina, Myanmar and Southern China.

Its is divided more or less naturally into four natural regions: the mountains and forests of the North; the rice fields of the Central Plains; the semi-arid farm lands of the Northeast plateau; and the long coastline and coastal islands of the Southern peninsula.

Thailand's neighbours are Myanmar to the west and north, Laos to the north and northeast, Cambodia to the southeast and Malaysia to the south.

The country consists of 76 administrative provinces or changwat each of which is divided into districts or amphoe, sub-districts or tambon and villages, mu ban. Appointed provincial governors administer all the provinces save one, Bangkok, where the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration is headed by an elected governor.

Bangkok is the capital city and centre of political, commercial, industrial and cultural activities. It is also the seat of Thailand's revered Royal Family. Thailand is a constitutional monarchy with His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej, or King Rama IX, the ninth king of the Chakri Dynasty, the present king. His Majesty is recognised as Head of State, Head of the Armed Forces, Upholder of the Buddhist religion and Upholder of all religions.

Parliament is composed of two houses, the House of  Representatives and the Senate, and both representatives and senators are elected by the people. A prime minister elected from among the representatives lends the government. The national flag is in horizontal red, white, and blue stripes symbolising the nation, Buddhism, and the monarchy.
