••• About the Authors •••

With a decade between them spent floating down the Chao Praya River and exploring the city's meandering sois, two seasoned travelers who both adore Bangkok have joined forces to create this guide. They know and love its well-known attractions like the Temple of the Emerald Buddha at the Grand Palace and Chatuchak Market, but they also appreciate the more obscure: a little bookstore that specializes in all things Asia, or a bowl of duck noodles at the neighborhood market. They think you will, too.
