almost all the forest types of continental South-East Asia. It
is home to a very diverse array of animals, including 77% of the
large mammals (especially elephants and tigers), 50% of the large
birds and 33% of the land vertebrates to be found in this region.
Historic Town of Sukhotai (C/1991)
Capital of the first Kingdom of Siam in the 13th and 14th centuries,
a number of notable monuments, which illustrate the beginnings
of Thai architecture, can be seen in Sukhota
Historic City of Ayutthaya (C/1991)
Founded in about 1350, Ayutthaya became the second Siamese capital
after Sukhotai. It was destroyed by the Burmese in the 18th century.
Its remains, characterized by its prang or reliquary towers, and
gigantic monasteries, give an idea of its past splendour.

in southeast Asia, Ban Chiang was the centre of a remarkable phenomenon
of human cultural, social and technological evolution. The site
presents the earliest evidence of farming in the region and of
the manufacture and use of metals.
