The subtitles "Places with a Heart," should have been, "Written from the Heart," because this is what they all are. The two authors, Banking executive Dominique Grele and Lily Yousry-Jouve, a lawyer and artist, have both widely traveled in Thailand, Malaysia, and the Philippines. Not to just the well-known tourist centers of these countries, but often to remote and virtually unknown parts leading them to select and write about 100 hotels, guesthouses or resorts in each country that provided memorable experiences.
