Contributor(s): Author: National Geographic Maps - Adventure - Waterproof - Tear-Resistant - Travel Map National Geographic's Thailand Adventure Map is designed to meet the needs of adventure travelers with its detailed, accurate information and user-friendly design. Hundreds of points of interest that highlight the diverse, unique, and exotic destinations within the country such as national parks and reserves, World Heritage sites, archeological sites, and monuments are noted. The map includes the locations of cities and towns with a user-friendly index, plus a clearly marked road network complete with designations for highways, roads, tracks and trails for those seeking to explore more remote regions. The front side of the print map shows the northern half of the country and extends south to the capital city of Bangkok. Border crossings are noted, as are many sites of interest in the neighboring countries of Laos, Myanmar (Burma), and Cambodia. The reverse side features the southern provinces located on the Malay Peninsula. A constitutional monarchy formerly known as Siam, Thailand is the only Southeast Asian nation to have not been colonized by European powers. Known for its lush island resorts, Buddhist temples, and the vibrant capital of Bangkok, the country offers much more for adventurers willing to explore its diverse ecological regions. Swim with whale sharks, rock climb limestone cliffs, ride an elephant through the jungle, visit the hill-tribes of the north, or just enjoy the hospitality and cuisine of a country known as the "land of smiles." Every Adventure Map is printed on durable synthetic paper, making them waterproof, tear-resistant and tough -- capable of withstanding the rigors of international travel.
