Unlike other countries in southeast Asia, Thailand was never conquered by a Western power. It was never a colony of the United Kingdom or United States. While it was still known as Siam, it was a growing power in the region. That growth was somewhat disrupted by World War II. During World War II, the government and military of Thailand sided with the Allied Powers. After the war, Thailand became an ally of the United States. That placed it at odds with many of the other countries of southeast Asia during the Cold War, many of whom had sided with the USSR during the Cold War. As with many developing nations during World War II and the ensuing Cold War, Thailand suffered from stagnation. It was faced with several military upheavals and economic distresses.
In the 1980s and 1990s, the fortunes of Thailand began to change very rapidly. This period is often known as the race for Southeast Asia. Unlike other Western invasions into Asia, the 1980s and 1990s consisted of peaceful economic interest in the region. American and British businesses began to move in very rapidly. This influx of European and American business caused a great interest in the US and the UK. That is one of many reasons that touring the United Kingdom has become a popular holiday for Thai citizens.
Touring the UK
A ทัวร์อังกฤษ, or tour of Britain, is a great way to experience one of the oldest countries in the world. In some form or another, Britain has existed since about the 5th century CE. Obviously, human beings lived on the island before that time, but it entered the history of Western civilization when the Roman Empire invaded. The inhabitants of the island of Great Britain at the time were a very diverse mixture of various tribal cultures. Many of them didn’t even have a common language. The Roman empire invaded, which brought the island of Great Britain to greater prominence on mainland Europe. In 1066, Normans from France invaded the island, which sparked hundreds of years of English holdings in mainland Europe. Since that point, Britain has been a massive part of world history and world affairs. If you are trying to learn about the world and experience its many cultures, England and Scotland are incredible places to visit. Triple Enjoy offers great holiday packages that allow you to tour the island and experience everything it has to offer.
