Snow in the Tropics by Guy Snow
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


What do you do when your partner announces she has a job on the other side of the world? Go with her, of course, and have the time of your life! This is exactly what happens in Snow in the Tropics, where the narrator's life is changed and enriched as he gets to know life in and around Bangkok. But this isn't just an account of life in one city; it draws the reader into the sights, smells and sounds not only of Bangkok but its neighbouring countries. We join the narrator on his travels as he learns the right way to wriggle out of traffic offences, how much to pay in the floating markets, and where to get the best food. Seeing this stage in life as a fabulous opportunity, he and his wife travel to Burma, learn about communism in Vietnam, encounter food and ancient customs in China and sample high-tech life in Hong-Kong. This is not just a travelogue though; it is an account not only of unfamiliar people and customs but also an insight into one man's reactions and feelings on coming into contact with such a wide variety of human life.
