Overview

Thai Ways by Denis Segaller

Thai Ways is a delightful collection of almost everything the curious visitor might want to know about Thai customs and beliefs, engagingly explained by a long-time English resident of Thailand. Compiled from a series of articles published in a popular weekly column in the 1970s, the selections remain as informative and readable today as when the author first wrote them. They demystify constructs like the system of royal ranks and the Thai musical scale, and customs such as the Loi Krathong festival and the Wai Khru ceremony.
