行政区域。76個府(จังหวัด, changwat)都是以其首府（เมือง，Mueang）作为该府的命名。在府底下，又有更小的次级行政区划，称为‘县或郡’（อำเภอ，Amphoe）与‘次区’（กิ่งอำเภอ，King Amphoe）.
Administrative divisions. Thailand is divided into 76 provinces (จังหวัด, changwat). The name of each province's capital city (เมือง, mueang) is the same as that of the province. Each province is divided into districts (อำเภอ, amphoe) and the districts are further divided into sub-districts.
泰国北部属于高山区，最高峰Doi Inthanon（2，565米）就在泰国北部的Thanon Thong Chai山脉里。所以许多泰国闻名壮观的瀑布也聚在这一区。东北部是呵叻高原，由于这里夏季极干旱，雨季非常泥泞，所以不宜耕作。
Thailand is a country located at the centre of the Indochina peninsula in Southeast Asia,was for centuries known as ‘Siam’, the official title changing to ‘Muang Thai’ (‘home of the free’) in 1939.
Totalling 513,120 square kilometres (198,120 sq mi). The geography of Thailand features many natural borders with neighboring countries: a mountainous border with Myanmar (Burma) to the north and west; a long stretch of the Mekong River separating Thailand from Laos to the north and east; and the Mekong River and the Dongrak Mountains delineating the border of Cambodia to the east.
The north of the country is the mountainous area of the Thai highlands, with the highest point being Doi Inthanon in the Thanon Thong Chai Range at 2,565 metres (8,415 ft) above sea level. The North of Thailand is famous for its many waterfalls. The northeast, Isan, consists of the Khorat Plateau, bordered to the east by the Mekong River.
The geography of Thailand’s interior is dominated by the Central Plains, the “Rice Bowl of Asia,” through which the Chao Phraya River feeds expansive rice fields and then enters the bustling capital of Bangkok before spilling into the Gulf of Thailand.
Stretching down the Malaysian peninsula, the slender trunk of the figurative elephant separates the Andaman Sea from the Gulf of Thailand, providing Thailand with beaches and islands along opposing shores. The islands of Phuket and Koh Samui are equally important as tourist destinations, though both coasts also contain numerous historical attractions as well as national parks, wildlife sanctuaries, and spectacular forests, waterfalls, and beaches.
