Thailand has long marketed itself on the global tourist scene as the "land of smiles", but after months of protests and now troops firing live rounds on the streets of Bangkok, that image has been badly tarnished.

You can, of course, come in to the Kingdom for less than 30 days, leave for a...ely-planet" title="Bangkok Tour Lonely Planet">Lonely Planet. The most valuable part of the book is not the phrases you can learn, but rather the information on Thai etiquette and protocol.
