    $22.99

    Hill Tribes of Vietnam – Introduction and Overview describes the diversity of lifestyles and cultures of the mountain peoples. Untouched by commercial development and modem attitudes for decades, most of the tribesmen sustain their traditions. Their natural surroundings are occupied by spirits and genies. Village and house construction, agricultural activities, weddings, child births, sickness, death and many more everyday situations are influenced by spiritual beliefs.

    This first volume introduces the ethnography and the classification of the hill tribe groups in Vietnam and presents a general overview of the habitation, social structure, government policy, education, health care, swidden farming, opium cultivation, religion and traditional customs. The complexity of their way of living is clarified with 254 illustrations.

    The acclaimed TV documentary series

    From my first day of walking the streets of Bangkok I was amazed by what I saw. Beautiful Ladyboy prostitutes, monks in saffron robes, shrines to Buddha and Ganesh, the smell of cooking and incense everywhere.
    This is my journey so far.
    From a naïve tourist falling in love with the wrong kind of girl to turning my back on Thailand’s night-life, discovering Thai culture and finding a ladyboy I could trust.
    Together, Annie and I featured in ‘Ladyboys’, Sky Living Television’s acclaimed documentary series.
    What happened behind the scenes and how it confirmed my life choices as well as shedding light on the transgender community in Thailand makes up a part of the story.

    These are some of the stories of my life – just your average Englishman (pommie) – beginning from birth, childhood, schooldays, adolescence and then service life with its world travels, through to leaving the Royal Air Force and England to re-unite with my family in Australia after almost five years. It continues on with my life and travels again during and after my (officially) 21 years of marriage to an Australian lady and my 34 years of residency, citizenship and family life there… This book is a presentation of my true-life experiences and was mainly written in stages and in many countries over the years (1967 – 2014). It is compiled in short-story, poetry and travelling diary formats, with images supplied, and includes light-hearted and humorous events in my life as well as the serious side. Riding life’s roller-coaster comes much easier with a good sense of humour.
    Cheers.

    Hot and Sticky Yarns from Rural Siam

    Isaan. Northeast Thailand. The furthest reaches of Old Siam. No coastline; no glistening lengths of powdery white sand; no Pad Thai-obsessed tourists; no touts; no taxis; no beggars; no hedonistic nights of extreme debauchery. Nothing. Just a whole lot of jungle. During a visit to Bangkok, I once saw a rack of t-shirts proclaiming that ‘good guys go to heaven and bad guys go to Pattaya’. Nothing for Isaan though. After all, who wants to walk around with ‘the clinically stupid’ emblazoned across their chest? I first visited Northeast Thailand in my late twenties. Initially I was appalled by the lack of, well, anything. For a chap hailing from suburban London it felt like I’d alighted into a particularly tedious episode of the Archers. However, the people, the fauna, and indeed the flora, made this impromptu sabbatical a quite extraordinary experience. The stories on the following pages are an account of my years spent in hot and sticky rural Siam.

  • English-Thai – Love, Sex and Romance Phrasebook

    $2.99

    This concise e-book was written after we asked many questions to hundreds of Thai girls working in the bars and entertainment spots of Bangkok and Pattaya, as well as numerous regular Thai women who simply thought it might be a nice idea to have a foreign boyfriend. We also talked to many tourists from different countries around the world, concentrating on men who primarily travelled to the ‘Land of Smiles’ in order to meet Thai girls. This is the resulting guide we compiled and it contains what we consider to be the most important words and phrases required for conversation between new Thai and farang (Western) ‘sweethearts.’ It is written in an extremely user-friendly format that begins with taking the new couple through that first meeting, then onto those first shy moments alone in the room, eating and drinking together, simple conversation and ~ of course ~ sex. There are also useful chapters on time, numbers and colors; in fact, all the phrases necessary to ensure a happy, enjoyable and trouble-free time together for couples who cannot speak the same language. Whilst putting the book together we tried hard to keep the contents as concise as possible, for fear of making it too complicated for practical use. We thought this brevity vital as the guide is primarily designed to be downloaded onto a mobile telephone and used in a bar, a restaurant, a bedroom; in fact, just about anywhere couples go together. Unlike most phrase books, for the reader who is really hopeless at languages, each phrase is arranged in English, Thai and the phonetic of both. This means that if you are unsure of the pronunciation, or too shy or just too lazy to attempt the required phrase, you can simply point at it on the screen of your telephone in order to communicate the meaning to your partner without saying a word! What could be easier? This e-book is specially designed for use with mobile telephones, e-book readers and tablets. If your answer to any of the following questions is ‘yes,’ YOU may need to buy this e-book! Specially designed for use with mobile telephones, e-book readers and tablets, it is amazingly useful, great fun and a real ice-breaker! Do you want to speak to her but don’t know what to say? Do you want to take her home but don’t know how to ask her? Do you want to ask her if she can do that special thing for you in bed? Do you want to tell her you love her very much? Have you considered she might be hungry but can’t tell you? Do you want to ask her about money? Do you want her to go but don’t know how to tell her? Do you want to ask her where something is? Do you want to see her again tomorrow? Are you completely hopeless at attempting to speak Thai? The solution to your problem is inside this book plus very much more!

    The political climate in Angeles City, The Philippines has shifted dramatically in the past year. The old Angeles was home to Clark Air Force base, and the red light district surrounding Fields Avenue was notorious for its raucous nightlife. Now, with increased political pressure focused on eliminating prostitution, there is an air of fear and caution among the bars that has rarely been seen.
    Jack Poet reports what he experienced on the ground in Angeles during the summer of 2013, and attempts to answer the question, are these the last days for Angeles?

    $2.99$19.95

    Strap on your motorcycle helmet, slip on your leather jacket, boots and gloves. Join the Gasoline Tramp on the first and wildest motorcycle ride around the world.
    Described as the ‘longest, most difficult and most perilous motorcycle journey ever attempted,’ this book recounts the 1912-1913 motorcycle ride around the world by Carl Stearns Clancy.
    After he completed his record setting global circumnavigation he compiled his notes and magazine articles in two long lost notebooks. 100 years after Clancy’s ‘round the world motorcycle adventure his work has been published as The Gasoline Tramp.
    Whether the reader is a history buff or motorcycling enthusiast, Clancy’s view of the world from atop a motorcycle was never seen before, and likely will never be again. Bad roads, guns, sickness, a crashed and broken motorcycle, corrupt officials and wild animals, Clancy faced them all.
    He rode his 1912 Henderson motorcycle where no man had ever ridden before. Clancy left his home in America as admittedly a 21 year-old boy. 18,000 miles and 10 months later he returned as a self-described man. He crossed America, Europe, Africa and Asia on his journey. His ride around the world truly defines what motorcycle adventure means.

    This is the tale of many attempted entries into Burma to meet the people living life in political oppression. Unfortunately, the two visas that were granted came with limited timeframes.
    The first one barely allowed a whistle-stop tour of basic city centers, where we saw what they allowed us to see. Next up, a visit to the Three Parallel Rivers region of Yunnan Province, China, bordering North-East Burma. Scaled Jade Dragon Snow Mountain at 5,500 meters and descended Tiger Leaping Gorge, the deepest of its kind in the world, but Burma access denied. Made a deal to hitch-hike and navigate the mighty Mekong River from The Golden Triangle to the Vietnam Delta, with an acquired taste diet of garlic and diesel, plus a quick insight in following the footsteps of a want-to-be Siddhartha disciple.
    An extended second visa into the new Myanmar gave time necessary to discover and meet the underground organizations of Academic and Business Management schools and assist them with their foreign networking and correspondence. As usual, there is never a dull moment.
    A lot can happen when you decide to become an ex-pat, teach in a Thai school and buy a bar. And even stranger things can happen when you travel in countries where you have to play charades to order some dinner.
    This book is filled with funny stories, quirky people, and incredibly stupendous situations. This is the third book of the Road Diaries chronicles and it’s time to reassess where the hell I am at, and to consider decorating it with the stuff I have accumulated over the years.

    $3.99

    The Minelab Excalibur has been hailed as the best beach metal detector in the world and is widely used by many metal detectorists, both hobbyists and professionals alike. This book takes the reader through the first six months of the author owning and searching almost every day with a Minelab Excalibur and gives a valuable insight into what the potential user of such a machine is bound to experience. Minelab Excalibur Diary provides an unparalleled look at the ups and downs of mastering the Minelab Excalibur and deals with the problems that the beginner is likely to experience with his new machine. It also covers some of the modifications that can be made to make beach metal detecting easier, as well as dealing with the changing conditions of beaches and tides that can make a day’s shore hunting either a golden success or a complete failure. Perhaps most importantly, the book also conveys to the reader the necessity of developing the right attitude to successful beach metal detecting with the Minelab Excalibur metal detector. Minelab Excalibur Diary is unique in as much as it is the true record of a metal detectorist’s first seven months spent in a concentrated effort searching a single Thai beach rather than a conventional guide or a reference book. Although the diary is set on a beach in Thailand, the book provides a valuable and enjoyable read and will assist the owners of Minelab Excalibur metal detectors to a greater understanding of both their machines and the shorelines of any beaches in any country in the world.

  • Thailand Bar Girls’ Men: Saints and Sinners

    $4.99$12.99 Jaggs, Peter
    Select options
    $4.99$12.99

    There have been hundreds of books about the girls who ply the oldest trade in the world around the bars and night-spots of Thailand and it is certainly arguable that yet another volume on the subject would be excess to requirements. However, up until now it is true to say that nobody has ever given the girls and women in question a chance to have their say about the men who come to peruse the neon-lit jungles of the country and pay for their company and the author feels that it is high time somebody did so.
    It is undeniable that the vast majority of books written about Thailand’s bar-girls depict them as mercenary, money-grabbing scammers and it would be naïve and perhaps even foolish for anybody to believe that in a large number of cases this is not true. Maybe this is why most of the males who appear in Thai bar-girl literature appear as unfortunate, love-struck nice-guys who didn’t know any better and who did not deserve to be wronged by a cheating schemer, however convincing, sexy and genuine she might have seemed at the time.
    But there are always two sides to every story. The fifteen true tales and anecdotes in ‘Thailand bar-girls’ men; Saints & Sinners’ are straight from the seductive lips of the girls who work the bars and streets of Thailand and they show that there are gentleman amongst their customers who are truly gallant as well as rogues whose appalling behavior at times borders on the demonic. Men who have spent any time at all around the night streets of Thailand will be able to identify these character types amongst the stories in this book and some might even recognize themselves.
    Apart from underlining the fact that there is good and bad in everyone and in all walks of life, the stories in ‘Thailand Bar Girls’ Men; Saints & Sinners’ do not attempt to draw any conclusions as to whether it is the women of Thailand or the foreigners who come to meet them who are right or wrong but simply states the facts in order to allow the reader to make up his or her own mind, although they definitely do offer an insight into why some Thai bar-girls have chosen to become the way they are.

  • Temple Caves & Grottoes in Thailand

    $9.99$59.99

    This is a ‘picture-guide book’ because it combines pictures from 47 temple-caves with brief descriptions and directions incl. latitude and longitude of all together some 482 temple-caves in Thailand (of which 160 are classified as possible). The book covers all 76 (77 with Bangkok) provinces separated in to five regions.
    Temple-caves are spiritual sites of worship (prayer and/or meditation) in caves, grottoes or rock-shelters.Temple-caves [also termed cave temples] (large), Grottoes (Small) and rock shelters/overhangs are on the one hand amazing natural phenomena, as in beautifully decorated (sculptured and carved) rock chambers and passages inside hills and mountains and on the other hand they have spiritual and religious context as ornamented and decorated sites for prayer, meditation and as shrines – for worship.

    Temple-caves are important places of cultural, religious and historical value. Temple-caves tie the present and past together. Many temple-caves have extensive decorations, carvings/reliefs, painted images and statues and figures of Buddha and other Deities. Others are simpler temple-caves with much less ornamentation.

    Some temple-caves are Wats (Thai Buddhist temples) in themselves with residing monks and teaching for novices, others again are used as temporary resting places for wandering monks or during KhaoPansa, the three month rainy period from August to October when monks are required to stay in one place, and some are hermit caves with only one monk residing while others are simply places of worship.

    Caves with a Buddha or other religious or animistic/spiritual figure or a spirit house mainly to ward off ‘bad spirits’ or protect visitors to me are not temple-caves. A temple-cave is a cave with a clear spiritual or religious worship context – a place for prayer or meditation.
