The whole-sale consumerism in the Far East is mind-boggling. At one end of the spectrum are the awe-inspiring shopping malls – great glass and chrome temples to the famous Western designer labels and expensive electronics goods.

Royal harems, shaven-headed Buddhist monks, hand-fed white elephants, twins who shared the same body, a floating city that mixed architectural grandeur with diabolical poverty…these were the stories that captured the imagination of the outside world and made personal accounts of Old Bangkok by writers such as Anna Leonowens (of The King and I) international best-sellers.
