About the author

Matt Owens Rees

Are you sometimes surprised when visiting a foreign country? Do you like discovering a side of the people’s lives that tourists rarely see?

Matt Owens Rees has written extensively on Thais and Thailand.

Thailand Take Two describes the main characteristics and differences between Thais and Westerners.

A Thailand Diary is a lighter read with an entry for every day of the year. You can take a virtual look inside the everyday lives and experiences of the Thai people, and how they and foreigners interact in this amazing country.

Through field research and discussions with Thais, either in normal conversation or in the lecture theatre, Matt Owens Rees presents a rich picture of the real Thailand: warts and all.

Despite not being similar in style, his books reflect on some of the observations in “Mai Pen Rai Means Never Mind.” ln his opinion, the best introductory book on Thais and Thailand. Written by Carol Hollinger in 1965, its insights are still very revealing and up to date. Sadly, Hollinger passed away at 45 years old before she could see her best selling book in print.

Thailand Take Two and A Thailand Diary are dedicated to her.

Escape To Thailand is an account of an expat’s move to this country and his early days here. Take a look at a free sample.
