Thailand is a developing country which has seen impressive economic growth over the past 40 years, growth that has provided consistent, but uneven, reductions in absolute poverty. Successive governments have faced the task of alleviating the poverty of life of those left behind in urban slums, often sited alongside luxury tourist and business buildings, and the poor who remain in rural areas. There is no effective social safety net. Democracy in Thailand is a fragile concept and the military coup in 2006 removed a Government that saw as its mission the inclusion of the poor in a capitalist enterprise, Thai Style, with self-reliance as its aim. This research tracks the development of Thai government policy and examines its effectiveness through the voices of the poorest in Thai society. This book is aimed at policy makers, practitioners, and researchers in politics, health and welfare, and for those people involved in tourism who are interested in the costs behind the famous welcoming Thai Smile.
The attractions of Thailand are endless - ancient monasteries, ruined cities, Buddhist monks, rave parties, colorful hill tribes, exotic wildlife, floating markets, dense rainforests, tropical islands, pristine coral reefs, and golden beaches. Then there´s Bangkok, the liveliest capital city in Southeast Asia, which would justify a trip to Thailand in itself. Don´t rush to try and fit everything in. You´ll almost certainly start your adventures in Bangkok and we suggest that you don´t hurry around. Alternatively, allow a couple of days to soak up the capital´s lively atmosphere, including at least one night on the notorious Khao San Road, before going north to Thailand´s second city Chiang Mai or south to the islands. To do both, you´ll need at least a fortnight; if you´ve got a few weeks to spare, add the infamous Bridge Over the River Kwai and Kanchanaburi to your list. In this Thailand Travel Guide, you will also be discovering the notorious cities and provinces that are Pattaya and Phuket. They are world-renowned and popular for their nightlife and scenery. Pattaya is always a lively and a fun city to be in. This vibrant coastal city shot to fame in the early 1980s and remained so. From dawn to dusk, Pattaya´s beaches are always brimming with life, as sun worshippers and water sports lovers constantly take to the waters. After dark, the action shifts to the streets, as partygoers explore its lively nightlife scene, where partying and drinking continue until early hours. With stunning tropical sunsets and spectacular scenery, a warm blue sea awaits you at Asia´s most popular beach destination. Phuket provides an unbeatable combination of silky, clean white sand and palm tree-lined beaches with great value accommodation and superb hospitality. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Kollins.
