Sweating in the Land of Smiles: Living in Bangkok During the Year of Radical Change
Aldo A. Quintana
Aldo A. Quintana is the author of "Sweating in the Land of Smiles," "The Twists and Turns of Living in Shanghai," and "180 Days Abroad with the Chinese Locals." Aldo is a California Bay Area native who holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree in Business Administration.
In "Sweating in the Land of Smiles," I unveil living in Thailand during COVID-19, the year of radical change. We’ll discover the Bangkok way of doing things through my observations and conversations with some Thai locals. You'll get an honest account of my experience living in a city with ten and a half million people. In this book, I don’t advocate for people to pack their bags and leave everything behind. The grass isn’t always greener. We must endure hardships different from the ones back home. Consider that the chapters aren't research-based or a how-to manual to get by. I don't know the nuts and bolts about Thai culture and the Bangkok lifestyle either. If you’re open-minded and want to swim in a book that’s not the usual stuff on Amazon’s library, then this read might do the job. You’ll at least learn some interesting things about Bangkok and Thai culture that you won’t get in textbooks. Who doesn’t like to stimulate their mind and broaden their horizons?
Target Audience: People who want to experience living abroad without spending a chunk of money traveling. Age: 20-45 (Southeast Asia travelers, college students who want to study abroad, working professionals who want international experience, and foreigners living in Asia). Gender: Male & Female
Book cover type
A one-of-a-kind, raw, grunge-style cover. I value creativity and quality rather than speed.
What to avoid
