About this title
"They burst with architectural illustrations, silvery photos, busy drawings, literary quotes, gallery tours, street maps and more." -- People
Remote mountain villages, crowded bazaars and golden spires are all part of the spectacle of Thailand. Dramatic ruins, monuments and temples are set in landscapes that range from broad plains and rice fields to orchid-filled jungles and steep, wooded mountains. One of the most exciting destinations in the world, Thailand will fascinate and entertain you with its exotic beauty and culture.
Travel to the awe-inspiring Grand Palace in Bangkok and the sandy islands of Phi Phi and Phuket. Witness the ancient elephant ceremonies of Surin, and learn all about the famous Floating Market in Bangkok. Explore the ancient city of Chiang Mai with its colorful festivals, night bazaar and sacred wats.
You can even study domestic and religious Thai architecture in page after page of rich illustrations and cross-sections. Learn about the Rama dynasty, the many costumes of the king, temple offerings and protocol, and even savory Thai recipes through detailed and historical and culture sections.
