Thailand has a wide network of roads and motorways. There are toll roads where you must pay as you drive through toll booths. Vehicles drive on the left side of the road. There are regular ferry services between the mainland and several islands.

History of Thailand
The Thai Kingdom has been existing since the 13th century. It is the only Southeast Asian country that was never occupied and ruled by a European power. A bloodless revolution in 1932 transformed the government from an absolute to a constitutional monarchy. After this point Thailand, known as Siam until 1939, was under an almost permanent military rule until the restoration of the democracy in 1992.
