Dazzling photography of urban and rural scenes from Thailand. Amazing depictions of life in Asia. Perfect for inspiring world travellers.
Narisa Chakrabongse, daughter of Prince Chula Chakrabongse, is a Thai author, editor, translator, and lecturer. In this 224-page visual explorer guide, she shares fascinating facts about her home country’s history and culture alongside 200 gorgeous photographs.
There are no maps and the text isn’t detailed enough to function as a travel guide, but this is a wonderful way for armchair travelers to learn more about Thailand. For the more adventurous, this book is certain to inspire travel plans. I’m not much of an international traveler, but this book made me long to see Thailand for myself.
At 6.6 by 4.8 inches, the flexibound paperback seems disappointingly small for such a gorgeous book, which is surely deserving of a larger coffee table book format. I’d recommend sticking with the 11.5 by 8.25 inch hardcover.
Thanks to Amber Books for providing me with an ARC through NetGalley. I volunteered to provide an honest review.
