VERY BANGKOK IN THE CITY OF THE SENSES
This is a new book. Condition: Brand New.
Bangkok arrests the visitor with a bewildering juxtaposition of old and new, hi-tech and impromptu, sacred and profane. While modernising apace under myriad outside influences, the Thai capital draws equal vigour from its historic communities, cultural diversity and contemporary urban tribes. Author of 'Very Thai' and 'Time Out Bangkok', Philip Cornwel-Smith takes an alternative look at the subcultures of his adopted town in this practical thematic handbook. With the aid of maps, listings and references, the visitor can engage with Bangkok's contradictory character according to their mood or interest.
Explore the city's contrasting environments, architectural fabric, ethnic patchwork and intertwined beliefs. Encounter distinct social scenes, whether hip or hi-so, local or bohemian and see how traditional roots infuse the current Thai flowering in arts and entertainments, fashion and food lifestyle and spas. Photography by Cornwel-Smith and others enhance this insider's guide to a city like no other.
