Thailand is located in the heart of Southeast Asia and is surrounded by Malaysia to the south, Burma to the west, Laos to the north and Cambodia to the east. It has a coastline of 2400km.

The capital is Bangkok, the largest city with a population of over seven million. Central Thailand, including Bangkok, is a vast and fertile plain. The north is mountainous. The northeast is semi-arid. The southeast is tropical.

The Thai pavilion was a spherical, four-storey building of 900m2. The ground floor illustrated Thailand's trading history, displaying an ancient sailing ship, laid on the sand and decorated with goods dating back a few hundred years.

The second floor displayed a steamship, sitting in the centre of the hall and filled with various export goods. Between the first and second floors were exhibited illustrations relating to Thailand's international relations. On the third floor were illustrations relating to Thailand's international relations. On the third floor there was a summary of the two themes, plus a video about Thailand. Around the video screen, one could see handicrafts that reflect the development and mixing of technology and arts in a purely Thai style.
