Nice little book. Very small. Fits in a small pocket. Quite good for first time visitors. Many useful phrases and a good little dictionary section as well as a short introductory grammar section.
One thing though - the Thai "letters" are printed in a gray font, which makes it not very readable. One needs plenty of light and 20-20 vision - or good glasses. But other than that very recommendable.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best mini-comprehensive learner phrasebook 13 Oct 2013
By HanLew
As far learning just the basics, this book is perfect, you really won't need anything more, it has easy to follow phonetic guides next to each word and the 'all you need to know' guide inside the front cover.

And then for further learning, it has a dictionary in the back which has nearly every word you may come across in general day-to-day conversation.

The grammar section in the first chapter is very useful when it comes to building your knowledge of the language once you've grasped the basics.

There are sections that give very useful advice on social conventions and behaviour which should be read.

There is a very detailed food glossary which made interesting reading.
