About Thailand

Thailand is a country of scenic diversity and ancient traditions, of tranquil temples and modern urban excitement. With and independent history going back more than seven centuries, it has managed to absorb a variety of cultural influences and blend them into something uniquely and memorably Thai.

Each of its four major region offers a distinctive experience for the traveler in search of discovery. Misty mountains in the north shelter verdant valleys and exotic hill tribes, while in centers like Chiang Mai traditional customs and crafts have been preserved over generations. Along the picturesque coastlines of the east and south lie some of the world's most beautiful beaches and off-shore islands, each with its own beauty. In the northwest of the region is Kanchanaburi, whose forested mountains, waterfalls and caves, national parks and wildlife sanctuaries on the border with Myanmar provide some of Thailand’s most enthralling scenery.

In the Central Region can be found the evocative ruins of ancient Thai capitals and bustling Bangkok with its dynamic and countless pleasures.

Thai food is known for its enthusiastic use of fresh herbs and spices as well as fish sauce which is popular in many western countries.

    Message from the President

    It is both an honor and a pleasure to invite you to the 9th International Congress of Tropical Pediatrics (9 ICTP) in Thailand, a country that is unique in so many ways.

    The focus of this Congress is to increase “Global Partnerships and Networking for Child Health”. What could be more important than the health and future of a child? Our children need health and hope, and our world needs a healthy and productive population. By working together we can make the world a better place for our children, and for all of us. Besides a successful, enjoyable and fruitful scientific meeting, I hope you will find time to explore and enjoy the hospitality of Thailand, the “Land of Smiles”.
