This sumptuous book takes readers on an insider’s tour of the natural and manmade wonders of the "Land of the Free Man" (the English translation of the word "Thailand"). Over 500 spectacular color photographs demonstrate the natural paradise that is all the more exceptional for its rare pristine quality. Readers meander along pure white beaches and dip their toes in crystal-clear waters, forge their way through dense jungle, and scale mountains overgrown with rare and exotic vegetation. In dramatic contrast, readers are taken into the enchanting city of Bangkok, the heart and soul of Thailand, where photographs linger over the intricate details of the gleaming gold temples and lead us into the bustling markets. Integral elements of Thai culture, such as dance theater, holidays and festival, and, of course, the delectable cuisine, are explored as well, through both lively text and super photographs. What emerges is a portrait of a place of brilliant color, vibrant multi-faceted culture, deep-seated spirituality, remarkable architecture, and hospitable people who have, for centuries made Thailand a fascinating magnet for travelers around the world. As colorful and vibrant as the country it celebrates, this volume presents a well rounded portrait of an exotic country that will appeal to world travelers and armchair travelers alike.
