A Geek in Thailand is a light-hearted but perceptive look at one of the world's most visited countries from the viewpoint of a young foreign resident.
More than just a Thai travel guide, it offers a concise but insightful take on Thailand for tourists, expats, would-be expats, and othersanyone, in fact, with an interest in visiting or learning about the Land of Smiles.
Packed with short articles accompanied by sidebar stories and interviews and evocative color photographs, the author paints a vivid and revealing picture of a country built on a deep reverence for nation, religion and monarchy, yet with its own distinct, individualistic perspective.

There are also chapters on the globally popular Thai food and entertainment like kickboxing and cabaret. Chapters on the Thai character and cultural do's and don'ts will allow the reader to go beyond the Thai smile.
For visitors to the country, the author includes his top ten things to see and do in the main tourist destinations as well as an account of the main festivals and tips on getting around.
A Geek in Thailand contains titbits that on the surface may seem as weird as they are wonderful but are sure to spark the reader's interest.
