You, too, can enjoy what the city can offer, alone!
Get the right information. Go to Pattaya with confidence!
Many visitors fall in love with local food and gentle, smiling Thai people who, among other things, love their King and motorcycles. A visitor who is new to the Thai culture, however, may easily embarrass herself, and even worse, local people if he or she is not familiar with Thai customs. The book explains the essential cultural elements that every visitor should be aware of when traveling in Thailand.
The Best of Pattaya, Thailand and the Essentials of Thai Culture consists of three main sections: where to go and what to do, introduction to the local culture and customs, and practical information on hotels, food, shopping, and transportation. The book is easy to read and digest: in addition to textual information, a large selection of photographs and video films provide visual information on the destination.
The author, Erkki Leppänen, is a cosmopolitan who has lived on three different continents over the years. He has lived in Thailand since 2006, most of that time in Pattaya.
Thailand is a country on Southeast Asia’s Indochina peninsula known for tropical beaches, opulent royal palaces, ancient ruins and ornate temples displaying figures of Buddha, a revered symbol. In Bangkok, the capital, an ultramodern cityscape rises next to quiet canal and riverside communities. Commercial hubs such as Chinatown consist of labyrinthine alleys crammed with shophouses, markets and diners.
This is a charity book and all royalties forevermore will go to the Royal British Legion. Thank you for your kind support.
Thailand Changes is at the same time both hilarious and sobering. The writing is blunt and honest and about as politically correct as a sexist Klansman on a baby seal hunt wearing an ocelot fur coat, so reader discretion is advised.
