    $4.99$13.99

    Lawrence Whiting has come to know the Thai monkeys of Phana very well in the seven years he has been running the Phana Monkey Project with his wife, Pensri. One of the things he has enjoyed most is the opportunity to introduce his monkey friends to so many Thai people as well as people from all over the world. He hopes that this book will enable even more people to appreciate these lovely creatures.

    After the monkeys had got comfortable with me… they would come up and touch my arm and then run away again. The mothers would walk up to me and set their babies down to play, and large males would bring their food and eat right next to me. They had let me into their world and I was forever changed.

    Stand outside a palm-shaded wooden hut in a Thai fishing park, and do battle with a colossal Mekong Giant Catfish. See an exotic Featherback pulled from a muddy canal by a rural Thai angler in a quiet, backwater town. Share a few beers and a magnificent catch of Rohu with a few new friends, and experience a fishing competition with an angry Thai bar-girl. Catch your first double-figure Carp sitting by the banks of a cliff-lined lake near the border of Thailand and Cambodia, or cast a lure from a deserted tributary close to the Bridge over the River Kwai, with only the birds and mosquitoes for company.
    Whatever your fishing preference, this country undoubtedly has it. This book will take you on an exciting journey through the diverse variety of freshwater fisheries in Thailand, and show you how to catch the incredible fish that swim in them.
    Peter Jaggs provides a humorous and panoramic portrait of the species, tackle, baits and waters; as well as some of the characters that the reader will encounter during his angling adventures in Thailand – the Disneyland of freshwater fishing.

    $9.99$16.99

    A fascinating portrayal of the ancient klongs of Bangkok. This fast disappearing world is seen not only through the keen eye of a photographer but also the pen of a consummate journalist, capturing the essence of real life on the klongs.
    Accompanying the photographs are revealing interviews with dozens of klong dwellers, all of whom were born and bred on these very banks, many of whom are old enough to remember another life in another time.
    This book shows a face of Thailand which many visitors don’t get to see, and if they do take a trip on the klongs, what are the stories of those who live there?
