A #Thailand Diary an E book from Matt Owens Rees. Free sample available


About the Author

Are you sometimes surprised when visiting a foreign country? Do you like discovering a side of the people’s lives that tourists rarely see?

Thailand Take Two describes the main characteristics and differences between Thais and Westerners. The volumes of A Thailand Diary are a lighter read. You can take a virtual look inside the everyday lives and experiences of the Thai people, and how they and foreigners interact in this amazing country. Escape to Thailand is an account of an Englishman’s move to Thailand and his first few years here. Matt compares Derek’s experiences with other expats and invites readers to consider how they would have reacted in similar circumstances.

Matt Owens Rees has written extensively on Thais and Thailand. Through field research and discussions with Thais, either in normal conversation or in the lecture theatre, he presents a rich picture of the real Thailand: warts and all. He is not known to fudge issues which need to be addressed and is certainly not politically correct. Matt Owens Rees tells it as it is, giving balanced accounts of Thai life.

Despite not being similar in style, his books reflect on some of the observations in “Mai pen Rai Means Never Mind.” In his opinion, the best book written on Thais and Thailand. Penned by Carol Hollinger in 1965, its insights are still very revealing and up to date. Sadly, Hollinger passed away at 45 years old before she could see her best-selling book in print.

Thailand Take Two and A Thailand Diary are dedicated to her.
