For the past three years Bangkok has been the world’s most visited city. From tourists using it as a gateway to explore the rest of Thailand to those seeking out the city itself, from travellers from East Asia heading west to those from the west heading east, Thailand is an exotic, accessible and irresistibly attractive country that offers both busy city life, tranquil mountain retreats, historical centres, outstanding beaches, and a wealth of culture to boot.
Thailand is a fascinating exploration of this magnificent country. From the sophistication of modern Bangkok to the ruins of the cities of Ayutthaya and Sukhothai, from the beaches of Koh Samui and Koh Chang to the mountains around Chiang Mai to verdant national parks such as Kaeng Krachan, the book tours the country’s most interesting destinations, region by region. Featuring street markets and floating markets, riding an elephant to travelling by tuk-tuk, Bangkok’s Mass Rapid Transit and the story of the World War II Burma ‘Death Railway’, the book is packed with more than 200 spectacular photographs.
Thailand’s mix of traditions, spiritual beliefs and landscapes make it stand out as one of the most exciting places on Earth. Presented in a handy pocket-sized landscape format and with captions explaining the story behind each entry, Thailand is a stunning collection of images celebrating this vibrant country.
