Insight into the steamy worlds of Pattaya and Sihanoukville

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 eBook is also filled with information of the sort that you certainly will not find in conventional travel guides.

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.
