9780971594036: To Asia With Love: A Connoisseurs Guide to Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam

Imagine that on the eve of your upcoming trip to Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam, you are invited to a party. At this party are fifty guests, all of whom live in or have traveled extensively through these countries. Among this eclectic and well-versed group of connoisseurs are authors of acclaimed guidebooks, popular newspaper columnists and pioneering adventurers. As the evening passes, they tell you tales from their lives in these exotic places. They whisper the names of their favorite shops and restaurants; they divulge the secret hideaways where they sneak off to for an afternoon (or a weekend) to unwind. Some make you laugh out loud, and others mesmerize you with their poetry and lyricism. Some are intent on educating, while others just want to entertain. Their attitudes are as unique as their personalities, but they are united in one thing ... their love of the region. If you can envision being welcomed at such a party, then you can envision the experience that this guidebook aspires to give you.   Within these pages you will find tips for adventuring, eating, shopping, and sightseeing from savvy expatriates, seasoned travelers, and inspired locals. Unlike the typical guidebook, To Asia With Love does not offer a comprehensive overview, but instead presents selected recommendations in the form of personal essays and tidbits, each of which is paired with a practical fact file. Discover the benefits of carrying a baseball glove in Laos, go bird watching in the Thai everglades, take a motorbike into the Cardamom Mountains of Cambodia, and immerse yourself in modern art in Vietnam. In addition, one chapter focuses solely on opportunities for giving back to the countries you visit.

Review:

This is what makes To Asia With Love stand out from the crowd: its emphasis on helping readers to better understand a destination - rather than merely get lots of information about it - through the experiences of the contributors. - Review by Greg Lowe. --International Herald Tribune/ThaiDay

Most guidebooks are limited to only a couple or writers, and voices, but this one is a real choir...which really represents the polyglot traveller's world of today.

Having expats and travelers reveal their favorite getaways, festivals, shops and eating experiences makes this a unique entry in the library of travel lit. - Review by Blake Cheetah. --Farang Untamed Travel Magazine
