Whether your idea of travelling Thailand is wandering around the ruined temples of Sukhothai and Ayutthaya, swinging in a hammock outside a ramshackle hut on a deserted, backpackers’ beach, meeting the Akha Hill-Tribe people of the North or drinking beer and getting down and dirty with the bar-girls and lady-boys of Pattaya; Thailand Drifter has it all, plus a load of laughs and very much more.
Over the past few years, a growing number of titles about roaming Thailand have appeared on the shelves of bookstores and on e-book websites, but what sets Peter Jaggs’ work apart from the others is the way in which the author’s words paint a perfect picture of the kind of situations and characters that any visitor to the country is bound to find themselves involved with, should they have come to Thailand for the diverse culture, the infamous night-life, the glorious beaches or simply for a relaxing holiday. After thirty years of floating around Thailand Jaggs knows what he is talking about and the thousands of copies his twelve titles have sold to date, despite only being on sale for only a few years, demonstrate this.
The twenty unique and very humorous travel tales contained in this offering are inescapably relevant to any potential traveler to the country, because as well as the kaleidoscope of colorful individuals they will undoubtedly stumble across, the book also brings to life a wealth of locations and circumstances that the reader is almost certain to walk slap-bang into, when following in the footsteps of a confirmed Thailand Drifter.
