Are you sometimes surprised when visiting a foreign country? Do you like discovering a side of the people’s lives that tourists rarely see?
Matt Owens Rees has written extensively on Thais and Thailand.
Thailand Take 2 describes the main characteristics and differences between Thais and Westerners.
A Thailand Diary is a lighter read with more than 100 diary entries. 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.
Through field research and discussions with Thais, either in normal conversation or in the lecture theatre, Matt Owens Rees presents a rich picture of the real Thailand: warts and all.
Despite not being similar in style, his books reflect on some of the observations in “Mai pen Rai Means Never Mind.” ln 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 2 and A Thailand Diary are dedicated to her.

"Insightful and informative.Much more than a glimpse into a fascinating people and culture. A must read for a visitor with more than a casual interest as a tourist."
There are a few unusual twists in the book particularly when some Thai characters are introduced. Available on Smashwords, all Amazon sites, Barnes and Noble, Apple, and Kobo
