Thailand embraces a rich diversity of cultures and traditions.
With its proud history, tropical climate and renowned hospitality, the Kingdom is a never-ending source of fascination and pleasure for international visitors.
Its history goes back to 1270 when a dam was constructed in the Rotte river by people settled around it for safety.
In 1340, Rotterdam was granted city rights by the Count of Holland.
The extensive distribution system including rail, roads, and waterways have earned Rotterdam the nicknames "Gateway to Europe" and "Gateway to the World".
