For decades, Hans Meier has visited Southeast Asia – from Thailand to Vietnam, from Cambodia to Indonesia, from Laos to the Philippines. He travelled independently and with an open mind.

Several times, Hans fell in love with wonderful, respectable ladies of the area. Until he married one of them.

This is Hans Meier’s account of his delightful Asian encounters. Among them are Noi in Thailand, Isah in Indonesia, Cambodian Norah and Vietnamese girl Phuong. As an intrigued westerner, Hans Meier shares their amazing local culture and their special Asian mindsets.

What happens when boy meets girl on the Asian trail? Hans Meier has stories to tell – sometimes heart-warming, touching, often funny. Always insightful, well-natured and non-offensive.

You will travel straight from your armchair with a smile. You will learn a lot, you might even fall in love. Stunning photographs add eye-candy to the experience.

Note: This book is perfectly family friendly. There is no explicit language, no graphic detail and no red-light visit. The author meets respectable people only, on beaches, in parks and restaurants.

Ever dreamt of discovering delightful Southeast Asia? You like the Asian ways, the food, the people? You could see yourself with a special Asian someone? Or you have been there, done that, and want to reminisce? This book tells it all:

20 sparkling stories, written from real life, introduce very special ladies and their charming environment. Experience life styles and thinking in Southeast Asia – in entertaining, fun ways, easy to follow (35.000 words, like a short novel of 110 pages, professionally prepared by an Amazon recommended studio).

Along the read, you’ll visit popular destinations such as Bangkok and Isaan in Thailand; Angkor Wat and Phnom Penh in Cambodia; Solo Surakarta and the temples of Borobodur in Indonesia. Plus all those charming villages and provincial capitals that tourists rarely get to see. And you’ll feel it was you who fell in love on that beach, or in that river side restaurant.

Questions left open? Then check the book’s executive summary, Ten Rules for Delightful, Successful Encounters – and enjoy your next trip to the region even more.
