I want to grow my knowledge about Thailand

edited August 2014 in - Thailand

I have great passion to travel around the world and in this
forum I am interested to discuss all the attractions throughout the
Thailand.  Thailand is truly a beautiful
country in Southeast Asia and attracts the visitors due to its attractive
places. I have visited Thailand once in my childhood with my father but here I
want to learn more about its places, history, culture, customs and its people.
I hope this forum will be a quite useful for me to grow my knowledge.

    paulsd and
    raubymartin! I don't have any idea about your above listed places but I just
    know a little bit about the Grand Palace. According to my knowledge the Grand
    Palace is a complex of buildings located in the heart of Bangkok. It was the
    official residence of the Kings of Siam. Am I right? Guys! Let me
    know further about this palace and other attractions that you have mentioned
    above. I am curious to know about all.

  • Kingdom of Thailand, Generally known
    as Siam, is a country at the center of Southeast
    Asia
  • Your out of date prvisaexpert, Thailand is not generally known as Siam and has not been so since 1949. In fact Siam is considered in some quarters to be racist term, as it means"dark skinned"
  • Absolutely Alethia! I can't remember the last time I heard Thailand called Siam...

  • Niky you could easily Google this information

    The oldest known mention of  the Siamese is in a 12th-century A.D. inscription at the Khmer temple complex of Angkor Wat in Cambodia, which refers to syam, or "dark brown", people It was believed that Siam derived from the Sanskrit word syam, or "brown race", with a contemptuous significance.
    After the  Siamese Revolution in 1932 the name of Thailand was initially adopted Thailand means "Land of the Free"  It was formerly ratified in 1949 as the official  name of the country
