really liked it

A far cry from most travel books' "formal" culture debriefing, this book will show you what you will likely actually see and do in Thailand - through the pop and street culture. It had me ahh-ing in understanding at times and giggling madly at others (especially the section on those ridiculously flimsy tissue napkins that we Westerners seem to need 10 of to wipe the green curry off our faces...)
