While this book is intended for tourists in Thailand it is not a conventional tourist guidebook. It contains fairly lightly written comments and semi-sociological analyses of aspects of tourism and tourist activities. Thai history, life and culture, the symbolism and social coding of everyday life in Thailand are noted and peppered with anecdotes drawn from the author's personal experiences. With many literary quotations, black-and-white and colour illustrations, references and index.
