Walking Tour Bangkok (3e) : Walking Tour Bangkok (3e)
Many of us visit Bangkok but this is Bangkok like you have never seen it before. The author takes you on an architectural adventure through the bustling streets and busy canals of this regal city. Learn about the different building styles: from Khmer, Sukhothai and Ayutthaya to Edwardian villas and marvel at the modern designs of today. The well-researched text and beautiful sketches will heighten your appreciation of Bangkok’s exotic palaces, temples, monuments, pavilions, markets, public buildings and many other quaint corners. In this third edition of the book, walks have been modified to incorporate Bangkok’s continuous urban development and new walks added. Many illustrations have also been redrawn to provide a better appreciation of the building facades.
