'A Rough Guide to Simulacrum in Thailand'

Sakwit, Kunphatu (2018) 'A Rough Guide to Simulacrum in Thailand'. Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) thesis, University of Kent,.

Abstract

My thesis, a theoretical-based work, concerns the effects of globalisation and tourism in context of Thailand, which the selected case studies are Damnoen Saduak and Pattaya Floating Markets. I particularly look at Baudrillard's theory to investigate to what extent his concept fits in context of Thailand. Also, my work uses Baudrillard's theory to study and conceptualise the effects of globalisation on Thailand's tourism.
