Quiz: Thailand - how well do you know this country?

Updated on May 29, 2011

Are you ready for the off?

Thailand is a land of smiles, a land of treasures, a land of mystery, a land of beaches and a land of culture. It is a popular holiday destination for many European, Australian, New Zealand and American tourists - well any tourists actually! It has prolific industries in the shape of automotive, electronic, textile and clothing industries in particular.

It has fabulous temples, amazing beaches, emerald seas, hot cuisine and lovely people. It has a relaxed and friendly ambience.

Beaches, sunrises, sunsets, food, sunrises, sunsets, food, beaches!

What more could anyone want?

Let's go!

        Very great quizzes about Thailand with deeply knowledge. It makes me pay more respect to you .. Chirs :) Some are so scary me to play with wrong answer, I've done well perfectly. Very deeply appreciated on the quiz no. 3 and 6 .. I think if you ask some people of Thailand with them, they will give you the answer as "I don't know" :)

        I don't know how you've done with this wonderful quizzes .. Chris .. Thank you so much for creating. 10 stars for you. So proud to know you. Have wonderful life times :)

        I love Thai food, although I became allergic to seafood in my 30's so I have to be very careful now. Love pad thai, minus the shrimp. Oh and I only had 40% correct, never traveled there and I really should have known the religion. In Toronto, there are really great Thai food restaurants. I'll keep trying and try to learn something.

        Chris .. You're so genius! Have you ever been in Thailand? Your quiz makes me smile and get some horror in the case of my answers is wrong. Not to be surprise if I got 10/10 :)

        PS: Anyone who would like to say Hello .. Just say .. Sawatdee (Sa-wat-dee) in thai language. It means greeting and blessing at the same time. Million stars for you Chris ;)
