Downloadable through the QR code provided above, the full-color pdf contains detailed information in English for tourists. Eye-catching visuals showcase the main temples and shrines in Bangkok, as well as in the central, east, northeast, north and south regions of the country. The guide also explains aspects of Thai Buddhism, temple histories and cultural traditions in special sections for each region.

In the special sections, as well as in the introduction, the e-book illustrates regional traditions and explores spiritual meanings that often are conceptually difficult for international visitors to understand. One section answers questions about Buddhist chants, talismans and the well-known yantra tattoos, or “stick and poke” Sak Yant tattoos. The guide also explains how Brahmanism, along with Chinese and Khmer traditions, adds to the mystique of Thai Buddhism and includes highlights about unique customs and traditions, like full moon holidays and sacred offers.
