Discover a temple – overlooked by visitors – that boasts a million Buddhas; offer bacon and eggs to tiger temple-guardians; visit the lair of giant monitor lizards; meet David Beckham, Donald Duck and Popeye in a Buddhist temple; gain merit by sponsoring a coffin; or decipher, from a tree trunk, the winning lottery numbers offered by a beautiful female ghost.
Meet a unique community of flute-players; eat a communal vegetarian breakfast with Bangkok’s Sikh community; learn about the traditional Thai pastime of “baldy-butting”; and meet a celebrated “healer” who goes by the name of Madame Breast-slapper. Secret Bangkok is more than just an indispensable guide to the hidden face of the city: it is written also to offer fascinating background information for those who love to connect with the soul of a place.
