The tropical city-state of Singapore may be small, but it packs a punch with a wealth of dazzling modern attractions, while also being a unique melting pot of Asian and Western influences.

Inside Explore Singapore:
Explore Singapore is part of a new series and is the ideal pocket companion when discovering this dynamic and atmospheric city: a full-colour guide containing 18 easy-to-follow routes which lead you from the colonial sights of the Civic District and the glamorous development at Marina Bay to the colorful bustle of Kampong Glam and Little India, and out to Sentosa's white sands and theme parks, as well as the lesser-known corners of the island.

Insight's trademark cultural coverage perfectly sets the routes in context, with introductions to Singapore's excellent cuisine, shopping and nightlife, as well as its history. The best places to eat and drink are highlighted in each route and in the directory section, which also contains a wealth of practical information, including our selection of hotels to suit all budgets. All routes are plotted on the useful pull-out map, and evocative photography captures the essence of this vibrant city.

Thai takeout meets authentic, regional flavors in this collection of 100 recipes for easy, economical, and accessible Thai classics--from the rising star behind the blog She Simmers.

Who can say no to a delicious plate of Pad Thai with Shrimp; a fresh, tangy Green Papaya Salad; golden Fried Spring Rolls; or a rich, savory Pork Toast with Cucumber Relish? Thai food is not only one of the most vibrant, wonderfully varied cuisines in the world, it also happens to be one of the tastiest, and a favorite among American eaters.

The good news is, with the right ingredients and a few basic tools and techniques, authentic Thai food is easily within reach of home cooks. Take it from Leela Punyaratabandhu, a Bangkok native and author of the popular Thai cooking blog She Simmers. In her much-anticipated debut cookbook, Leela shares her favorite recipes for classic Thai fare, including beloved family recipes, popular street food specialties, and iconic dishes from Thai restaurant menus around the world.

All of Leela’s recipes have been tested and tweaked to ensure that even the busiest cook can prepare them at home. With chapters on key ingredients and tools, base recipes, one-plate meals, classic rice accompaniments, and even Thai sweets, Simple Thai Food is a complete primer for anyone who wants to give Thai cooking a try. By the end of the book, you’ll be whipping up tom yam soup and duck red curry that will put your local takeout joint to shame. But perhaps more importantly, you’ll discover an exciting new world of Thai flavors and dishes—including Stir-Fried Chicken with Chile Jam, Leaf-Wrapped Salad Bites, and Crispy Wings with Three-Flavored Sauce—that will open your eyes to all the wonderful possibilities that real Thai cooking has to offer.
For many, Thailand remains the quintessential Southeast Asian destination - exotic and exciting but accessible, whether you want to soak up Bangkok's bright lights or the sun on a tropical island.
