Thailand, a very awesome country which is located in the center of mainland South Asia. until the half of the 20th century, Thailand was an agricultural country, but after the 1960s the people moved from Bangkok, the capital of Thailand to other cities. Siam was the official name of Thailand till 1939, and Thailand was never brought under European domination.
Thailand approximately has the same land as France and Spain and consists of two geographic areas, a large main section in the north and a smaller peninsula in the south. The main area of the country is surrounded by Myanmar to the west, Laos to the north and east, Cambodia to the southeast, and the Gulf of Thailand to the South.
Drainage of Thailand
Thailand has two huge river systems, Chao Phraya in the west and the Mekong in the east. Three major rivers in the northern mountains from west to east.
The main influencers of Thailand’s climate are its location in a very tropical monsoon zone and specific topographic features.
Animals and plants in Thailand
Thailand is the world of forests. As of the mid-20th century, the total land areas covered by forests and jungles had declined from more than half to less than one-third. The poor management system is the main cause of the decline. The forests consist largely of hardwoods such as teak and timber and resin.

Around 34 percent of the people of Thailand live in Urban places and in contrast, 66 percent of the people live in agricultural villages. About 75 percent of the people living in Thailand are Thais and 14 percent are Chinese, 4 percent are Muslims, and so on…
