The Love Hunter, Thirty-Minute Millionaires, Ethnic Ethel and the Artful Dodger plus many more. If you have travelled to Thailand, you will certainly have come across most of the characters in this book at some time and it is quite possible you will even recognize yourself amongst the pages.
True to form, the author takes a tongue-in-cheek look at tourists he has known in the Land of Smiles, all of whom are based on people he has seen or met in over three decades of living in a country which undeniably attracts some very colourful individuals.
Uncompromisingly honest and wickedly amusing, Thailand Tourists is a must-read for anybody contemplating a trip anywhere in Asia and will give a completely different aspect to a boring flight, a day on the beach or a hop around the night-spots, allowing the reader to tick off the types represented one by one; all brought to life by the illustrations and script in a unique and often remarkable way.
Peter Jaggs is from Essex in England and has spent the best part of the past twenty five years in Thailand since he was in his early twenties and has visited every province in the country. Peter has always believed that real work is a necessary evil and should only be undertaken when funds are required for the extended bouts of bar-hopping, fishing and hanging out on beaches he much prefers.However, he does enjoy writing about his beloved second home and has had articles, stories and poems published in several newspapers and magazines. Although Peter loves women – especially of the Thai variety – he is not married because he feels that a wife would be as much of a hindrance to his freedom and irresponsible lifestyle as a regular job. Besides this, no female on God’s earth could put up with him for any length of time apart from his mother.Peter is currently based between Devon, England and Pattaya City and spends an equal amount of time in each of his two homes with frequent excursions to other favourite venues in Asia. Peter also wrote the first ever book in the English language published on freshwater fishing in Thailand.
