Thailand is bordered to the north by Myanmar and Laos, to the east by Laos and Cambodia, to the south by the Gulf of Thailand and Malaysia, and to the west by the Andaman Sea and the southern extremity of Myanmar.
As of 2016, Thailand had a population of 68,863,514. Thailand's population is largely rural, concentrated in the rice-growing areas of the central, northeastern, and northern regions. As of 2010, Thailand had an urban population of 45.7%, concentrated mostly in and around the Bangkok Metropolitan Area.
There are about 7 million Taiwanese and Chinese people in Thailand. In order to help facilitate a strong connection between overseas compatriots, there are approximately 600 overseas compatriot associations in the region. Furthermore, because overseas compatriots in general take education of the next generation seriously, the OCAC has set up 119 overseas compatriot schools in Thailand. The schools focus on teaching traditional Chinese characters and promoting Taiwan's diverse cultural learning.
