Carl Bock already had experience

Carl Bock already had experience. He travelled Borneo in 1878, collecting specimens but also visiting and observing the native Dyak people -the headhunters- there. Shortly after returning to England he published ‘The Head-Hunters of Borneo’. Back from Siam he published his new facts and findings in: ‘Temples and Elephants’ – ‘Travels in Siam in 1881-1882’ (Samson Low, 1884.

Having written a memorable account of his journey to Borneo and Sumatra, Carl Bock made another remarkable expedition to the Southeast Asian Mainland. With vivid detail and telling anecdote, Bock describes his journey from Bangkok to the region between Burma, Laos, and Thailand know today as the Golden Triangle. Bock restores old Siam to life in a book that remains exciting to read a century after its original publication.
