Really a great book and the author obviously knows his subject. Very well written and intelligent and the photographs are superb! Glad I found this on line. Thailand, I'll see you soon!
A fine summary of what goes on in Bangkok's nightlife. The first section has text and pictures from all over the country, but the nightlife section concentrates on Bangkok. The Land of Smiles is well named as these beauties illustrate so well. The author seems to have photographed women all over the country in just about all professions but in the Nightmoves section, it is all about the bar scene. Interesting stuff. And what a change from the States where the women in nightlife usually display bad attitudes.
At last somebody caught the flavor of Thai women and especially the fun of Thai nightlife. There is no nudity in the book (well, a couple of times, it comes close), but the women are sensual and fun-loving. I have been to Bangkok three times and can say without doubt that the author has rendered an accurate picture. He even includes a section on nightlife 21 years ago, Men in the Scene, and Ladyboys in the scene. The perfect gift for Stateside-bound buddies who can only dream.
This book may not yet be available in the States but I picked up a copy in Bangkok. It was selling at the Monet Club on soi 33 off Sukhumvit Road. Which is fitting because they told me the cover girl works there. Unfortunately, she wasn't there the night I was there so I couldn't get her to sign it. Anyway, this book describes why men around the world love Thai women. A must read for anyone heading to Thailand. The pictures are beautiful, yet even the pictures of go go dancers are tasteful, and there is no nudity in the book. For me, though, the women in the countryside are more appealing than the dancers in bars. Anyway, a great book!
