Places to Visit In Thailand

Places to Visit In Thailand"Sawatdee!" Welcome to our online website about Thailand. We are teenagers from Thailand  who want to show you about our country. On our web site you will find lots of information and pictures about Thailand. We are different to other web sites because we are not paid to say good things about hotels and tours. We just tell you the way we see it. If we think a place is expensive or somewhere is not worth visiting then we will tell you.

The reason we are making this online guidebook, is that we want to show people how beautiful Thailand really is. Most people think about Thailand as having only drugs & girls. That's really NOT TRUE. Thailand is worth more than that. We have lots of very beautiful beaches, islands, views etc.

Places to Visit In ThailandWe also have a very interesting culture. We have chatted on ICQ with some people who think Thailand is not safe but really our country is just as safe as other countries. We also have had lots of e-mail from people asking for pictures and information about places to visit in Thailand. All of this is why we are working on this web site. We can say in a short sentence: "We want to show the real Thailand to people around the world". We think it is working because people write to us saying that they now want to come and visit our country. We hope you enjoy all our fun hard work.
