Mark Fenn has just reviewed Bizarre Thailand in Singapore’s Straits Times newspaper, giving the book an all round thumbs up.
Illuminating and irreverent, it offers a taste of Thailand far from Bangkok’s glitzy shopping malls and the well-worn tourist trails, delving into subjects as diverse as Thai folklore and superstition, the criminal justice system, the sex-for-sale scene, off-beat tourist attractions, unusual religious festivals and more.
Mark went on to write: “Highly recommended for anyone with more than a passing interest in the kingdom.”
He also recommended Phil Cornwel-Smith’s Very Thai as a companion read. So a shout out to Phil too.
