Thailand is the world’s 51st-largest country. It is the 20th-most-populous country in the world, with around 66 million people.
Thailand was the most visited country in Southeast Asia in 2013, according to the World Tourism Organisation. Prostitution in Thailand and sex tourism form a de facto part of the economy.
It is believed that at least 10% of tourist dollars are spent on the sex trade. Many children are caught up in this trade through human trafficking.
