And, of course, Phuket's got a tourist draw because of Patong Beach, where anything goes and everyone goes....day and night.

Thailand is known worldwide for its healthy food and friendly smiles. A meal in this restaurant is about US $1.

Thailand's also known for its tourism. Just about everyone in Sweden comes here to holiday every year.

This is one of the Thai "longtail" boats that swarm around the tourist spots. Notice the engine sits atop a long tiller, at the end of which is a propellor. It's from these long tiller/propellors that Thai "longtail" boats get their name.

Buddhism is without a doubt the source of the friendly nature of this country. Here is a photo of a heavily decorated Thai Buddhist temple and its fantastic garden.
