Thailand is a country of 65 million people in Southeast Asia. Thailand offers travelers dense tropical rain forests, ancient ruins and large modern cities. Thailand, formerly named Siam, is the only country in Southeast Asia that was never colonized by a western nation. Therefore, the culture of Thailand has remained far less influenced by the west than neighboring countries. Thailand’s sophisticated beaches, exciting nightlife and comparatively inexpensive costs attract single travelers from around the world.
