If you are thinking of going to China to teach or travel then don’t – not until you have read this book. The book may entice you to go or it may persuade you to stay. Either way if you are interested in China and wish to far beyond the tourist guide view, then read this book.
The author lived in one of the most famous cities in China, yet few in the West have heard of it. He also lived near the epicentre of the most damaging earthquake in recorded history, yet it is long forgotten. China is so big that it hides behind itself so you need a book that takes you beyond the veil: this is that book. It is not a detailed study of the country, yet reveals the heart of the place through insightful revelations.
You will enjoy the accounts of teaching and travelling which are sometimes funny, sometimes sad. You will be surprised and shocked at the descriptions of school life and the life of the poor. You will begin to understand the very real cultural differences between the West and China and learn how to cope with them. You will also learn how to buy beer in Chinese restaurants.
Rob Walters’ book spotlights the fundamental problem facing the foreign teacher in China and provides a solution. It is entertaining and informative and, since it is based on two separate visits, gives a sense of China’s unending paradox: its stability and its ability to cope with rapid change.

It seems like some people work their entire life so they can take an Exotic Vacation, when in reality, such a trip can be had for less than taking the family to DisneyWorld.
Let Travels With Sheila teach you how to Travel the World on a Budget, share exotic locations with you known only to locals, and most importantly, ease your fears about languages, currencies, personal safety and staying healthy.
If this is not your first visit to Thailand. If you’ve been there, and done it all – Bangkok, Chiang Mai, the Golden Triangle, sampled a few of its renowned golden Beaches and Islands – swing by comparatively less-visited Ayutthaya, Sukhothai and Lampang. Mention this to some people and you’ll get a blank stare, “Why would you want to see Historical Cities? What do they have to offer?”
Spending time in Thailand’s Three Ancient, and Historical Cities, is nothing like touring “historical sights” in Europe, i.e. Dry facts, guides spouting…and then so-and-so fought so-and so…and then so-and-so took over so-and so…followed by the great-grand-nephew of so-and so-who then warred on… No, no, and no. Prepare for an easier, gentler immersion into Thai History.
Walk, bicycle or tuk-tuk over acres of peaceful Historical Parks with no motorized traffic….small, gigantic, standing, and reclining Buddhas, serenely gaze down on you…Burmese, Khymer, Lana, and Singhalese-style Temples, Chedis/Stupas and pillars are scattered throughout, remnants of the 800-year old Siamese Kingdom…and quietly hum a few bars from “The King and I, even though the Thai people considered the movie disrespectful. Add the fabulous Bang Pa-in Palace, Wat Phanan Choeng’s Golden Buddha, and House of Many Pillars into your itinerary while making your way north towards Chiang Mai.
HERE’S SOME OF THE INFORMATION YOU’LL FIND INSIDE…
– Easy Basics For Visiting Thailand.
– The Dos and Don’ts of Independent Travel.
– How to Save Big Money Without Sleeping With Fleas.
– What to See and Do.
Now, Travels With Sheila tells it like it is with the personalized, up-to-date information and photographs you need to make the most of your trip to Thailand. See the best of Thailand’s Historical Cities by following her travel tips.
