Summary

From the authors of Molvania-A Land Untouched by Modern Dentistry, Phaic Tan is a hilarious, tongue-in-cheek answer to the travel guidebooks of the world.Hot and humid, birthplace of the trouser press and irritable bowel syndrome, Phaic Tan is often described as "The Armpit of South-East Asia." Yet for all these charms, this fantastic country has been unknown to the outside world for too long now, visited by just a handful of hardy travellers, aid agency workers and hostage negotiators.Here is the first serious introduction to this undiscovered jewel. This invaluable, up-to-the-minute guide is packed with over 300 colour photographs, maps and all the information anyone-whether budget backpacker or luxury traveller-needs to know to plan their trip. Where to stay? The Orient Star Hotel in the capital, Bhumpatabumppah, comes complete with a live-in cocktail waiter in each room's mini-bar. What to eat? The local cuisine is best described as "explosive," a fiery mix of chili, garlic and pepper to which food is occasionally added.
