|About the Book|
Thailand, the land of smiles, elephants and Buddhism, is unique for its fascinating culture, traditions, and attitude towards the world and life. It is a country shrouded in mystery, waiting for the wide-eyed and open-minded to explore its distinctiveness. Thais, with their natural charm, hospitality and relaxed temperament, are adept at making visitors feel right at home.Thai people are justly proud of their country and especially His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. The self-sacrifice and loving dedication of His Majesty to the people of Thailand has provided a constant source of guidance and inspiration to all ages and all nationalities. To mark the occasion of His Majesty the King’s 84th birthday, Thailand Royal Project offers glittering glimpses of His Majesty the King’s most successful ‘drug-crop replacement’ project. The project has completely removed opium poppy growing from the northern highland areas of the country by introducing new and improved crops that allow hill-tribe people to attain better living conditions and sustain the rich bio-diversity of the land.
