“I walked out the door, a bit dazed. I had ten dollars and two not-quite diamonds, and it was summer in Siam.” John Borthwick’s first day in Thailand seemed far from auspicious — but it has been uphill from then on. Dropping him in the middle of everything from three-day tribal weddings, elephant polo follies and pristine islands to Pattaya’s bacchanalian nightlife, Thailand has kept John and his pen constantly on the move. One of Australia’s leading travel authors, John Borthwick has gathered here the best of his years of Thailand adventures, plus a swag of vivid tales from his wanderings in India, Xinjiang, the Himalayas, Borneo, Bali, Laos, Vietnam and the Philippines.

About the Author:

John Borthwick, one of Australia’s leading travel writers, is sometimes found in Sydney, but equally often getting lost in Asia. Writer/photographer John is the author of a very large number of magazine and newspaper features on travel and cultures. He is almost certainly Australia’s “most awarded” travel writer, having received multiple awards from the Australian Society of Travel Writers and other bodies. In 2004 the government of Thailand presented him with the prestigious “Friend of Thailand” award for his writings about that country. He holds a PhD in travel literature and his extensive photographic work is represented by the Lonely Planet Images library. John’s books include 'Summer In Siam', 'Chasing Gauguin's Ghost' and 'The Circumference of the Knowable World', as well as the edited collections, 'The Road to Anywhere: Peter Pinney' and 'Off the Rails'.
