The capital, Bangkok, also has beaches, islands, trekking destinations, minority ethnic groups, and forested mountains all of which combine to act as a magnet for tourists.

Foreigners in the country also enjoy taking courses ranging from Thai cooking to Buddhism and Thai massage. Other attractions in the country include archeological sites, museums, palaces, Buddhist temples, and several World Heritage sites.

This has only been made possible by the influx of tourists in the country. It is expected that the outstanding performance of the tourism industry will continue for years to come.
