Never a dull moment in old Bangkok. Glittering temples, Siamese twins, pirates, palace intrigue and exotic delights. Come along as Chris Burslem guides you through the rich past of the "land of the white elephant", from the days when it was the remote floating capital of a closed kingdom to its emergence as a bustling modern metropolis. The stories - painstakingly collected from firsthand accounts, postcards, local legend and elsewhere - paint a scintillating atmospheric portrait of one of Asia's most alluring cities.
