Compiled by foreigners living and working in Bangkok, the information and advice contained in the Bangkok Guide is based on personal experience and professional expertise and is designed as a complete guide to expat life in Bangkok. Each edition is thoroughly revised and updated, making the Guide the most popular and reliable handbook for new arrivals and long-term residents alike.
