is home to several distinct geographic regions, partly
corresponding to the provincial groups. The north of
the country is mountainous, with the highest point being
Doi Inthanon at 2,576 metres (8,451 ft). The northeast
consists of the Khorat Plateau, bordered to the east
by the Mekong river. The centre of the country is dominated
by the predominantly flat Chao Phraya river valley, which
runs into the Gulf of Thailand. The south consists of
the narrow Kra Isthmus that widens into the Malay Peninsula.
The local climate is tropical and characterised
by monsoons. There is a rainy, warm, and cloudy southwest
monsoon from mid-May to September, as well as a dry, cool
northeast monsoon from November to mid-March. The southern

capital Bangkok include Nakhon Ratchasima, Khon Kaen, Udon
Thani, Ubon Ratchathani, Nakhon Sawan, Chiang Mai, Surat
Thani, Phuket and Hat Yai (Songkhla Province).
