Chiang Mai & the Hill Tribes

Chiang Mai & the Hill

Beyond Doi Suthep rise other peaks, myriad mountains ranging down from Tibet and China. These highlands are home for many peoples, among them Iu Mien, Karen, Akah, Lahu, Hmong and Lisu, designated as the hill tribes. All are relative newcomers at Thailand's northern gateway.

To Thailand With Love: A Travel Guide for the Connoisseur (To Asia with Love)

To Thailand With Love: A Travel Guide for

Most tourists in Thailand clutch their Lonely Planet guides and follow a well-worn path: a quick stop in Bangkok, trekking outside of Chiang Mai, cocktails on the beach in Phuket. They see so little; they miss so much. To Thailand With Love tells where to eat cobra salad, where to find ghosts in Ayutthaya, where to spend an evening among fireflies, where to meet sea gypsies or hear the songs of gibbons, where to spend a day on a rice farm, where to learn to make paper from elephant dung. Add to this shopping tips, restaurant recommendations, secret sanctuaries provided by expats and frequent visitors—and an unforgettable trip is guaranteed.

Thailand Drifter

Thailand

Whether your idea of travelling Thailand is wandering around the ruined temples of Sukhothai and Ayutthaya, swinging in a hammock outside a ramshackle hut on a deserted, backpackers' beach, meeting the Akha Hill-Tribe people of the North or drinking beer and getting down and dirty with the bar-girls and lady-boys of Pattaya; Thailand Drifter has it all, plus a load of laughs and very much more. Over the past few years, a growing number of titles about roaming Thailand have appeared on the shelves of bookstores and on e-book websites, but what sets Peter Jaggs' work apart from the others is the way in which the author's words paint a perfect picture of the kind of situations and characters that any visitor to the country is bound to find themselves involved with, should they have come to Thailand for the diverse culture, the infamous night-life, the glorious beaches or simply for a relaxing holiday. After thirty years of floating around Thailand Jaggs knows what he is talking about and the thousands of copies his twelve titles have sold to date, despite only being on sale for only a few years, demonstrate this. The twenty unique and very humorous travel tales contained in this offering are inescapably relevant to any potential traveler to the country, because as well as the kaleid...

A Bewitching Smile (Land of Smiles Trilogy Book 2)

A Bewitching Smile (Land of Smiles Trilogy Book

A Bewitching Smile is reminiscent of A Passage to India in the creation of a kind of psychological DMZ, another Shangri-la with its own ephipanies and perils. The tough-sensitive characterization, and the sharp, often aphoristic dialogue, and the irony, combine to create a powerful drama.In this sequel to A Killing Smile, Richard Breach who is a magician, mystic and world-class card player teaches English in Bangkok. Crosby, his former student, has found an assignment for Breach's talents: a rescue mission. Snow is held hostage in a hill tribe village. Snow's plan to become Lahu godman has failed and his life is at risk. Breach has private reasons of his own -- a dying friend in England has requested a set of ritual shaman's.As the journey progresses to the north of Thailand, another mission takes form: Breach is to play in a high stakes card game. The story is about magic, myth and the power to transform the self. A Bewitching Smile, the second A Land of Smiles trilogy -- confirms the novels of Christopher G. Moore are destined to become a Southeast Asia social chronicle of the 90s.

On Tour... LAN NA North From Chiang Mai To The Hill Tribes

On Tour... LAN NA North From Chiang

LAN NA Our journey through Lan Na, the 'Kingdom of a Million Rice Fields', begins in the historically rich city of Chiang Mai in northern Thailand. Built in the 14th century, Wat Phra Singh is situated in the historic centre of the city and is one of Chiang Mai's most important religious sanctuaries. Apart from its wealth of historic architecture the city is also well known for its popular arts and crafts, especially its colourful cotton and silk umbrellas. The cultivation of rice has been known in Eastern Asia since 3500 B.C. Even though the majority of Thai rice farmers are poor, their work is much respected. Work in the paddy fields is hard and the daily life of the rice farmers is influenced by the seasons and particularly the weather. Even today, water buffalo are frequently seen pulling the traditional water wheels that assist in the irrigation of the land. Mae Hong Son is a notorious town as it is situated close to the infamous GoldenTriangle, one of the largest opium producing areas in the world. On the shores of the town's small lake are several beautiful sanctuaries such as the Mon temple of Wat Chong Klang built according to traditional Burmese design. Those who venture out onto the dark streets of Mae Hong Son early in the morning can witness the daily life of this co...
