This is Thailand, Marek Lenarcik
Author Marek Lenarcik's decision to give up all of the material things he collected - flatscreen TV, sofas, a nice car - and trade them for an unknown life in a strange, exotic land sounded like every single man's dream. On paper. He quickly finds what he's looking for: a lifestyle involving beautiful women and easy-living. But he also gets more than he bargained for. Lenarcik details his journey in his new book, 'This Is Thailand'.
Traveling through Thailand's exotic locales, Lenarcik's desire to experience Thailand's forbidden fruits leads him to a gorgeous, kind, independent Thai girl who, he is convinced, might well be the "one". But as he immerses himself deeper into this strange country and all its inexplicable worldviews and customs, he begins to discover a much darker and complex side to the Land of Smiles and her inhabitants. Soon, 'the one' begins to reveal her true colors. Before he knows it, Marek is ensnared - as have many men before him - by the dreaded Honey Trap. This stormy relationship acts as a fascinating backdrop to insights into Thailand's unique culture that stem from the author's efforts to come to terms with the reality of this land and the people who call it home.
"This book been written for those that are curious about the world, Asia and Thailand. It does contain a fair bit of sex, but any story without that and about Thailand would be a lie," said Marek Lenarcik. "It's not a travel story. It's the most fascinating moments from my 18 months of living in Thailand, all collected in one book. It's a book for dreamers and travelers alike."
Tourist mecca Thailand acts as a key character in this brave travelogue, a best seller in the author's native Poland. A truthful description of the reality of life in Thailand beneath the surface is captured by a man who got caught up in it and escaped before 'Bangkok got him'. A must-read for those dreaming of a better, hedonistic life on 'the other side'.
