The mountainous northern region, the flooded landscapes of the northeast during the rainy season, and the fertile agricultural land in the interior, irrigated by the Chao Phraya River, represent only a part of Thailand's special diversity. In addition there is the lively capital Bangkok and the dream beaches in the extreme south with the offshore islands in the Gulf of Thailand. More than 500 pictures show the country in all its beauty, which is influenced by Buddhism.
Snow-capped Himalayan mountains, palm-fringed sandy beaches, impenetrable tropical jungles and majestic tigers, wild elephants and brilliant birds are just some of the attractions India has to offer in over 400 photographs in this splendid volume. Besides the scenic beauty, the cultural aspects and the people make this country very special.
