If you are a serious traveller, considering driving through or thinking about living in Thailand you need to read James King’s THAILAND DIARIES including Driving Thailand.
Witty, informative and full of typically British humour, 'Driving Thailand' is an excellent overview of Thailand's different regions. Highly recommended for travellers, would be ex-pats and those who enjoy light reading. In this second volume of his Thailand Diaries the author takes the reader on a conducted tour of the South, Central, North-East and North of Thailand. Thailand is split into four distinct regions; North (bordering Myanmar and Laos), North-East (bordering Laos and Cambodia), Central and South (bordering Malaysia). Then you have the myriad islands in the Gulf of Thailand and off the West coast in the Andaman Sea. The author highlights the differences in the history, environment, dialect, attitude and culture in a most engaging and conversational way.
James writes more extensively about Thailand in Volume 3.

James King is an Englishman who emigrated to South Africa in 1995. His work took him all over the Country, visiting Cities, townships and rural areas, gaining valuable insight into the culture and lives of the people after apartheid was dismantled. He is well travelled, has mixed with politicians, sports stars, creatives, music impresarios, business tycoons, murderers, fraudsters, and even hired assassins. Each of them has provided rare material that adds vivid colour to his writing. In 2008 James moved to Thailand, in semi-retirement where he has built two houses, renovated another, created a tropical garden from waste land, built a successful blog, written books and become an accomplished amateur photographer. James’ niche is in the literary and suspense drama genre although he started by writing non-fiction travel books. His writing emphasises story with a literary bent and character-driven suspense with twists, turns, and feeling. His first novel is due to be published in 2018. His poetry drifts from the romantic to a fear for the survival of our world and the darkness of death. Inspired by music, film, and literature, Shakespeare, Dickens, Hesse, Leonard Cohen and Bob Dylan have all had a profound influence on his writing at some point.
