Enhanced appreciation for Thailand 19 Dec 2003
By toyonal - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I wish I had owned this book before my month long visit to Thailand three years ago. I received this book as a Christmas gift last year and really appreciated the insight it provides concerning the history, culture, and style of Thailand. Not only is it a gorgeous book with wonderful pictures but it also helped me to better understand Thai culture and style.
It really helped me to better appreciate my experiences in Thailand.

captivating and informative 3 Feb 2004
By J. Cronin - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is the perfect book for those who like some substance to their form. The writing is wonderful - I felt like I took a trip through time and through Thailand. The photos are beautiful as well because they aren't just the standard head-on shots, but interesting details and angles.

By far the best 3 Feb 2004
By Connie Hsu - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Having bought a large number of architectural books on Thailand, I can validate that this is the best so far. It is a well written book and definitely worth purchasing. I definitely recommend it for whoever has a passion for the decorative arts and for plain class Thai architecture. Definitely a gem.
