Bangkok Then and Now by Steve Van Beek

"A tribute to a great city." Bangkok Post

"Written with remarkable wit and tied together deftly with the magic string of a skilled storyteller." The Nation

Already a classic, this fascinating book looks at one of Asia’s most exotic cities from the inside out. The informative, entertaining text by a 30-year resident will enthrall even those who have never visited Thailand. Photos taken in 1900 and set beside photos shot in exactly the same spot 100 years later provide a graphic portrait of the surprising changes the city has undergone. Articles from the Bangkok Times of 1900 (the voices of the people themselves) reveal the often hilarious challenges that gripped residents a century ago. Discover how Bangkok became what it is today, and add a rich dimension to your appreciation of one of the world’s great cities.

Two views across the river towards the Grand Palace 100 years apart.

Steve Van Beek has lived and worked in Bangkok since 1969. Much of his leisure time has been spent walking the streets, poking into lanes, and talking with its inhabitants to gain a feel for this great city. His early explorations led to his Bangkok Only Yesterday, published in 1980. He is the author of 21 books, including The Chao Phya: River in Transition, The Arts of Thailand, Slithering South, and numerous others dealing with Thailand's history and culture. He has also written and/or directed more than 40 documentary films.
