Blundering Around Isaan
By Peter Jaggs
In recent years Thailand has enjoyed a remarkable rise in the number of tourists coming to visit this fascinating and beautiful country. Thailand has been discovered, and hordes of travellers are now flocking to experience the diverse culture, friendly people and delightful beaches for themselves. Despite this rapid increase in tourism, there are still villages in the Northeast of the country where things have changed little for hundreds of years.
Join the author during his unexpected six-month sojourn in Northeast Thailand. Meet farmers, fishermen, spirit doctors and Thai boxers and share in his misadventures as he comes to terms with the warm community of a rural Isaan village. Sometimes hilarious, often touching, occasionally tragic - but never dull - this book takes the reader into the heart of the Northeast, and provides an insight into a traditional way of life and a culture that is fast disappearing.
