Thai cuisine is another big contributor for rising Thai tourism. Thai food is extremely popular among food aficionados around the world and is well known for its freshness, intricate flavors, and complex spiciness. In short, the cuisine, Thailand's natural beauty, temples and lots more make Thailand one of the most popular destinations.

Belonging to the Tai group of the Tai–Kadai language family, Thai is the official language of Thailand which is used by more than 20 million people. Besides Thailand, Thai is also spoken in Singapore, the UAE, Midway Islands and the USA. Just like Chinese, Thai is a tonal language with 5 tones namely mid, low, falling, high and rising which help to ascertain the tone of a syllable.

Thai script & vocabulary
Most probably Thai script has been derived from the Khmer script, which is based on the Brahmic script. The Thai natives modified the Khmer script in order to create their own writing system which began to emerge around 1292 CE. The Thai alphabet consists of 44 basic consonants as well as 18 other vowels.

The Thai alphabet can be used to write words of Sanskrit, and Pali language. As far as the Thai vocabulary is concerned, Thai has borrowed innumerable words from Sanskrit, Pali and Old Khmer. Towards the 20th century, Thai was also influenced by the English language and contains several scientific and technical words of English.

Thai dialects
Standard Thai or Central Thai is spoken by a majority of people including speakers in Bangkok. Thailand is also home to various other dialects and related Tai languages such as Issan which is spoken in the North east of Thailand and shares some similarities with the Laotian language.

In the Northern region of Thailand, various dialects are used such as the Lanna dialect, and Phasa Nuea. Then there is Khorat Thai which is widely spoken in Nakhon Ratchasima and Phasa Tai which is used in the Southern region of Thailand.

Considering that Thailand is one of the growing tourist destinations in the world, numerous multinational organizations and corporations are expanding their businesses in Thailand. To be successful in this market, you will require a professional looking website in the Thai language which the natives can understand.
