With colorful, vivid photography and insightful commentary, this pictorial and Thailand travel guide offers readers a glimpse at a dynamic country and its people.

Thailand has many claims on the title "Golden Kingdom." It is a country of shimmering wats, its monarchy is still deeply revered, and it exerts a magic all of its own. This travel book captures that magic with stunning photographs of all aspects of Thai life and makes an ideal souvenir for any visitor to the country.

Included are sections on history and geography, as well as the cultural and religious heritage that is unique to Thailand. Sections on festivals and collectibles, and a portrayal of Thai-style art and architecture are full of detail. Thailand: The Golden Kingdom portrays both the Thai people and their beautiful home in a cornucopia of color and design.

This volume is a stunning visual representation of all aspects of the Thai culture and life. Author and long-term resident William Warren, provides an insightful overview of the history and geography of the kingdom, as well as a detailed exploration of the rich tradition of Thai arts and crafts, religion and cultural events. Soaking up the sun on a beach, visiting a wat, partaking in one of the numerous festivals or browsing in the art and antique shops are all part of the essentially "Thai Experience" shared here.
