Thailand - Geography
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Thailand is in Southeast Asia. It is almost right in the middle between India and China. The only way to get to Malaysia and Singapore from Asia by land is to go through Thailand.
 
2     Thailand is about two times the size of Wyoming. Many people live in the country. There are more than 60 million people in Thailand and more and more are added every year. Parts of the country are very crowded.
 
3     There are beaches in Thailand, and mountains, too. The Andaman Sea and the Gulf of Thailand border part of Thailand. In the northern part of Thailand there are mountains almost 8,500 feet high!
 
4     The weather in Thailand is almost always wet. From May to September there are warm, rainy winds called monsoons. From November to March, there are dry, cool monsoons. The long, narrow piece of land called a peninsula that forms the southern part of Thailand is always hot and humid. If you like hot weather and a lot of rain, Thailand is a good place to be.
 
5     Thailand is divided into seven regions: The north, northeast, central plains, east, west, and the Bangkok metropolitan region. Each region has a very different kind of geography.
