    No Reservations in Thailand...

    Anthony Bourdain is an American chef who broke out with a book deal and subsequent TV series named 'No Reservations'... The series is about his travels around the world, experiencing different cultures and foods... He's a different sort of character, having been there, done that, as so many of us have done... I've enjoyed his shows for the past few seasons...

    So what's the point??? He arrived in Thailand back in April to film a show during Songkran and wound up in the middle of the red's protests... Some really interesting scenes around the protest and of course, the food...









    Give a man a match, and he'll be warm for a minute, but set him on fire, and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

    Interesting bloke. Ex (serious) druggie, smoker (stopped recently though), drinker and of course foodie/chef. I have read all (I think!) his books, of which "Kitchen confidential" is the first and classic one.

    Can recommend the books.

    ^ Sounds different for sure. I wouldn't fancy tring to cook outside on the grill during Songkran myself but contrary to the aging farang-screwdge water terrorist view of Songkran revellers you see plenty of moo bing and gye yang barbeque vendors working in the midst of the vile anti-social no respect songkraners...
    They champion falsehood, support the butcher against the victim, the oppressor against the innocent child. May God mete them the punishment they deserve

    Thanks, one of my favorite travel shows.

    How many travel hosts do this?

    If you poke around, you can find shows he has done in many SEA countries... Laos, Viet Nam, China, Philippines, French Polynesia, Indonesia, Malaysia, etc... He even travels to penal colonies, like Ozzie land...
