To its east lie Laos and Cambodia ; to its south, the Gulf of Thailand and Malaysia ; and to its west, the Andaman Sea and Burma . Its capital and largest city is Bangkok . Thailand has had one of the longest monarchies in history. It is also the only Southeast Asian country that was not colonized by any Western power. A unified Thai kingdom was established in the mid-14th century. Known as Siam until 1939, Thailand is the only Southeast Asian country never to have been taken over by a European power. A bloodless revolution in 1932 led to a constitutional monarchy. In alliance with Japan during World War II, Thailand became a US ally following the conflict. Thailand is currently facing separatist violence in its southern ethnic Malay-Muslim provinces. At 514,000 km² (198,000 sq mi ), Thailand is the world's 50th largest country in land mass, whilst Flag of Thailand: Brochure to BANGKOK Place that we are going : The Capital of Thailand, Bangkok Arrival in Singapore : -Singapore 00:05(GMT+08:00) Arrival Airport: -Singapore Changi Airport, Singapore (SIN) Cost for 4 : TH4,500 =SGD199 Departure time for Singapore : -Bangkok 20:50(GMT+07:00) - Flight Number: Jet Star 3K 514 People going:Father,Mother,Me and Brother Transport: - BTS Skytrain operates from 06.00 - 24.00 hours everyday with two main lines -- Sukhumwit and Silom lines.

The Thai highway network links every part of Thailand. The four lane highways often have overhead concrete pedestrian crossings interspersed about every 250 meters in populated areas. There are no on and off ramps, highways are separated by median with breakage for U-turns, except in Bangkok where ramp style U-turns predominate.
Elevated toll "sky" highways are prominent leading out of Bangkok, such as Bang Na - Trat Highway and th : ถนนวิภาวดีรังสิต . A number of undivided two lane highways have been converted meh to divided 4 lane highway, greatly enhancing safety and speed. A Bangkok - Chon Buri motorway (Route 7) now links to the new airport and Eastern Seaboard .
Thai motorway network
The Thai motorway network is small. Coupled with Bangkok's extensive expressway network, the motorways provide a relief from regular traffic in Bangkok. The Thai Government is planning infrastructure investment in various "megaprojects", including motorway expandsion to approximately 4,500 kilometers.
Buses are a major method of transportation for people and packages, and the most popular means of long distance travel. Tour and VIP class long distance buses tend to be luxurious and tall, while city and other class buses are often very colorful with paint schemes and advertising, and tend to be about the same size as a North American school bus. Bangkok city buses come in various sizes, types, and prices, from half size, full size, double length, open window, fan, and air conditioned.
Alternative transport includes tuk-tuk, taxi, van ( minibus ), subway, motorcycle taxi, songthaew , boats (in canals and rivers).

Principal waterways: 3,999 km
3,701 km with navigable depths of 0.9 m or more throughout the year.
Numerous minor waterways navigable by shallow-draft native craft, such as long-tailed boats .
River and canal transport
In Bangkok, the Chao Phraya River is a major transportation artery, with ferries, water taxis (the Chao Phraya Express) and long-tailed boats. There are local, semi express, and express lines for commuters, though the river winds a lot, which can make the trip much farther than by bus. There is also the Khlong Saen Saeb boat service, which provides fast, inexpensive transport in central Bangkok.
Ferry service between hundreds of islands and the mainland is available, as well as across navigable rivers, such as Chao Phraya and Mae Khong ( Mekong ). There are a number of international ferries
