Book Description

"Bays of peach-tinged sand, cotton hammocks swinging lazily between palm trunks, castle-like karsts emerging from the deep. These dreams of a tropical paradise become a reality along the coasts of southern Thailand." - Brandon Presser, Lonely Planet Writer

About the Author

Regis grew up in a small town in the American Midwest, and first discovered the world beyond the Ohio River paging through old National Geographic magazines in the attic of his boyhood home. Encouraged by his parents n teachers both n he developed an unhealthy appetite for world literature and went on to major in Slavic Languages and Literature. Shortly after the collapse of communism, he traveled to Russia where he spent a year living and studying in Moscow; in his free time he explored the countryside, took inexpensive flights to the Middle East and learned the fine art of drinking vodka slowly around a warm kitchen table while winter winds howled outside. After university, Regis bumped around the west coast, working for a Nobel Prize-winning scientist in San Francisco, editing copy for an advertising agency and doing assorted other odd jobs (bartending, hocking art at galleries, dressing up in animal costumes) to save money for trips abroad. After a memorable trek through the Andes in 1999, he returned home, sold all of his belongings and set off on an ambitious journey across Latin America. Inspired by the people and landscape, he began writing stories, which later turned into a novel, and led serendipitously into a career in travel writing. =Since 2003, he's been a full-time travel writer, which has fueled his love of foreign languages, world music and literature and perhaps most importantly good food and drink. Regis spends around four months a year on the road and he's written dozens of guides for Lonely Planet. His writing has led him across North and South America, to various corners of Eastern and Western Europe, and around Asia and Australia. His work has appeared in travel magazines, as well as in dailies like the Chicago Tribune and the Los Angeles Times, and he is a regular contributor online (www.gadling.com and www.bbc.com, among others). When not out exploring the world, Regis splits his time between Brooklyn, New York and Sydney, Australia.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible tips Feb. 10 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I am unsure why all guides for Thailand received low ratings, so I went with this one despite warning from fellow Amazon customers. Wow. What a lousy job! We didn't use it at all - so unreliable and skimpy was the information. The internet was our guide in Thailand. This was money threw in the garbage.

I used this book when I traveled to Thailand alone and loved it! I found lots of useful information in it and was able to plan where I wanted to go based on the views and opinions in the book. I was not disappointed by any place I chose to go to from this book! I highly recommend this book if you plan on traveling to Thailand!

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you have the 'Discover Thailand' book, you will also notice many similarities. Although I really appreciate the further detail on those beaches and islands, most of the reading is about the same. I enjoy the further detail on hotels & restaurants, but missing many pictures.

1.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to navigate in e-book Feb. 13 2014
By Jonas Nilsson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bought the e-book when in Thailand and instantly needed a guide book. The e-book has bad table of contents and no index, which makes navigation and finding what you are looking for very difficult. We have never bought any guide book as e-book before so maybe this is normal, but for us it made the book useless. The information we were looking for is probably in the book but we gave up and stopped reading it after some days.

I don't recommend this book as e-book to anyone. Buy the Paperback!

I have been to several of these places and I agree with their accessment. Now I know which places to visit next, this winter. I totally LOVE the Andaman Sea and all the beaches and islands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Used it to Travel around March 25 2014
By Julie Silva - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've been to Thailand before, and had a Lonely Planet book for Thailand before, so this was my second use. It still shines as good as ever, but just as a side note. It's just a reference for travel. It's a great reference, and I recommend using this book always. BUT, some of the best little guest houses aren't on the map. Even the Lonely Planet map. Just a side note that's completely unrelated to the awesomeness of this book.
