Q:

On what continent is Thailand located?

A:

Thailand is located on the continent of Asia. Along with Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Malaysia and Burma, it is on the Indochina peninsula. It is located entirely in the tropics.

Thailand has two main areas; the main body of the country is in the north, and the southern part of the country is part of a very thin peninsula known as the Malay Peninsula. It shares the top part of the peninsula with Burma, then occupies it entirely until it reaches the border of Malaysia, which takes up the bottom portion of the peninsula. Thailand's location between China and India and its location on major international trade routes gave it exposure to a number of different cultural influences. For example, the country's dominant religion, Buddhism, spread from India, while its most famous dish, pad Thai, probably came from Chinese traders.
