Joe Bucket is a hard-bitten English ex-pat who first came to Pattaya when it was little more than a fishing village. He is an ordinary guy who likes beer, football and fishing -- and loves Thai women even more. But with the great changes the city has undergone, perhaps it was inevitable that, after twenty-five years, even the fantastic had become familiar. That was until Joe met old Ron, a retired merchant seaman in a wheelchair who was not long for this world. The shrewd old seafarer persuaded Joe to carry out a last task for him, and the next thing the Pattaya old-hand knew, he was bound for Sihanoukville in Cambodia to search for a Khmer bar-girl the fading seafarer desperately needed to find. Accompany Joe Bucket from Pattaya to Cambodia and on his adventures among the streets, bars, brothels and beaches of Sihanoukville and let him introduce you to the gangsters, hookers and other misfits he meets along the way. Visa Run is written with humour and feeling and insight into the steamy worlds of Pattaya and Sihanoukville. The book is also filled with information of the sort that you certainly will not find in conventional travel guides.

About the Author:

Peter Jaggs has spent the best part of the last thirty years in Thailand. he is the author of many books about the country which are available in paperback and e-book format. Peter starting writing for fun and nobody was more surprised than himself to find his books reaching best-selling status on many distribution sites which specialize in material about Thailand. As well as his books, he has written many articles, short stories and series for English language newspapers in Thailand, including the Pattaya Mail and Pattaya People weekly. He has also made several appearances at Expat clubs and on television in Thailand. Peter Jaggs has been described as something of a 'pioneer author' in Thailand, having written the first ever books in the English language on the subjects of freshwater fishing and metal detecting. His other books include novels, true travel adventures and 'From Beggar to Butterfly', which was described in a review by the Bangkok Post as one of the best books about Pattaya written.

Review:

A full-fledged novel tipping the scales at 200 pages, Visa Run contains pretty strong material at times (and) a much softer side. The character sketches of the cast of characters encountered by Joe in Cambodia (the comedian monk, old woman, child beggars, motorcycle taxi driver, gangster bar owner, beautiful girls etc.) are excellent. Hard to put down; enjoy the journey. Daniel Schwartz, Pattaya Trader Magazine
