Synopsis: ANCIENT CAPITALS OF THAILAND

From its opulent former capitals to its ruined temples and sanctuaries, Thailand boasts a long and colourful history. This magnificent collection of photographs accompanied by insightful text brings alive the kingdoms of Sukhothai and Ayutthaya together with the ancient towns of Kamphaeng Phet, Si Satchanalai and Lopburi, recalling an era when great armies would ride into battle on elephants. Thailand's former capitals are now in ruins, but they continue to evoke the power and splendour of times gone by. Ben Davies is a well known travel writer and photographer who journeyed all over Thailand to explore the history of this proud kingdom.
