This wide-swath ASAR image shows part of southern Thailand, by the Gulf of Thailand (above). Southern Thailand consists of the narrow Kra Isthmus that widens into the Malay Peninsula.
The Titiwangsa Mountains are part of the Tenasserim Hills system, and form the backbone of the Peninsula. They form the southernmost section of the central cordillera which runs from Tibet through the Kra Isthmus (the Peninsula’s narrowest point) into the Malay peninsula.
