Overview

Boxed Set includes:

A Thailand Diary,

A candid look at Thais and Thailand in a light and readable diary format. Over 100 entries.

Holding back no punches, the book takes you inside the real Thailand and gives the reader an essential tour of the country and its people. It allows its principal characters, authentic Thais, to talk of the cultural differences that make Thailand such a fascinating country. Get ready for some surprises when you read it.

Travel guidebooks are useful introductions to the country and provide many useful tips and ideas but they don’t allow you to experience at first hand the neighbourhoods where the ordinary Thai lives.

A Thailand Diary takes you into that world. A virtual journey into today’s Thailand from the comfort of your own armchair.

In its pages, you will meet Khun Fon, Ratchanee, Noi, Bancha, and many others. You may be surprised as you learn about aspects of Thai life that remain undetected by the average tourist. Thailand will never fail to surprise

Escape to Thailand

Read about Derek's contentious divorce in the UK and his fears and hopes in starting a new life in Thailand. Is he really fitting in? How do other expats cope with life in a very different culture?

    Two very different books.   Take Two is a good background to asp

    Two very different books.
     
    Take Two is a good background to aspects of Thai culture and ordinary life that one does not ordinarily see.
    It adds much to the excellent classic work on Thailand, Mai Pen Rai Means Never Mind by Carol Hollinger.

    Welty's books are longer and are "must reads" for anyone wanting to know more about Thailand. Take Two scores by  being very down to earth and showing both the pleasnt and not so pleasnt sides of the country.

    "Escape to Thailand" is a very intimate account of a newly arrived expat and brought out clearly the doubts that kept creeping into Derek's mind
