Sawasdee…Welcome to our Land of Smiles!
Known as “the Land of Smiles”, Thailand embodies what Knutson Travels’ tour is all about, the people! From the hustle-and-bustle of Bangkok, to the picturesque mountains of Chiang Mai, and the beautiful beaches of Phuket, our tours give you a wide variety of what makes Thailand special.
Thailand, formerly known as Siam, has a rich and fascinating history that dates back more than 7,000 years. The country has been influenced by various civilizations, including the Khmer Empire, the Mon people, and the Indian subcontinent. In the 13th century, the Thai people established the Sukhothai Kingdom, which marked the beginning of the Thai nation-state. Over the centuries, the country experienced a series of dynastic changes, wars, and territorial expansions. In 1932, Thailand became a constitutional monarchy, which is the form of government that still exists today. Despite being invaded by Japan during World War II and facing various political and social challenges, Thailand has emerged as a vibrant and diverse country that welcomes millions of tourists every year.
