Bizarre Thailand takes readers off the well-rutted roads of tourist hotspots into the darkest and sexiest hinterlands. Welcome to a twilight zone where travellers become soldiers and cowboys, a black magician courts politicians and film stars, sacred tortoises mate on the streets of a small town, and fertility goddesses are wooed with massive phalluses. In this strange realm, nothing is what it seems: a prison becomes a tourist attraction, a 20-storey robot is a building, a man becomes a beauty queen, a loving wife is immortalised as the most famous and ferocious of all phantoms, and a serial killer's corpse is reincarnated as a museum exhibit. Bizarre Thailand takes an irreverent look at how the profound, profane and frankly quite odd intertwine with the rhythms and flows of everyday Thai life, while paying homage to the quintessential culture of one of Southeast Asia's most captivating destinations.
