The people of Thailand call their country "Ratchaanachak Thai"—Kingdom of Thailand. During two periods of history, Thailand was called "Siam"—in 1855–1939 and 1946–1949. By any name, this nation has a truly unique culture due largely to its status as the sole Southeast Asian nation that successfully resisted western colonization.
