Spellbound In Chiangmai

Thailand – a land of ornate temples, vibrant markets, beautiful beaches, friendly smiles, sumptuous food and a mythical charm. Just a couple of steps beyond the realm of tourism, into what seems like the real Thailand, is a surprisingly little-known place brimming with love, peace, joy and friendship. Many sheltered and simple-minded Singaporeans regret not discovering this paradise earlier in life.

Chiangmai is the Rose of the North, a land blessed with mild weather, majestic mountains and gentle people. Stumble on the charming beat of life in Chiangmai and you think you have found paradise. You think you have fallen in love. Or have you simply fallen under a spell?

Spellbound in Chiangmai is a collection of 9 short stories featuring naive and sheltered Singaporeans inextricably drawn to a foreign culture that’s nothing like theirs. When they come to their senses, they explain their obvious folly with exotic tales of spells and black magic. Were they really under the influence of some supernatural power, or have they just been foolish?
