  12. 15.

  13. 16. <ul><li>dynamic Bangkok , a city that is larger than life, with its futuristic high-rise buildings juxtaposed against the glittering Grand Palace . </li></ul><ul><li>Traffic and tranquillity, beaches and bargains, ancient palaces and stunning temples </li></ul>Thailand background
  14. 17. <ul><li>Beyond urban Thailand are flat plains carpeted with rice paddies and dotted with tiny villages, mountains of luxuriant teak forests where elephants once roamed wild, long stretches of white-sand beach, acres of coconut palms and rubber plantations, and clear-blue waters against towering rock cliffs. Rural life is languid and hospitable, and behind every warm Thai smile there is true kindness. </li></ul>Thailand background
  15. 18. <ul><li>Outdoor-adventure opportunities abound: sail, paddle, dive, and snorkel in the sea; trek to villages; ride the rivers; or go on four-wheel-drive adventures in the rugged upcountry. </li></ul><ul><li>Rural Thailand is ripe for exploration by bus, train, car, motorbike, and boat, and visitors are limited only by their tolerance for adventure. </li></ul>Thailand background
