The country covers a land area of 181,035 sq-km. It is bounded in the west by Thailand; the north by both Thailand and Laos; the east by Vietnam and in the south by the Gulf of Thailand. Administratively, the country is composed of 24 provinces, 26 municipalities, 159 districts, 1,633 communes, and 14,221 villages.
