About the Author
Patrick Forsyth has worked for many years as a business consultant and management trainer. Linked to this he is the author of more than fifty business and management, personal development, self-help and career books (for example, Successful time management and How to write reports and proposals, both published by Kogan Page. In recent years his writing has expanded into broader areas. He has had a humorous book published about miscommunication, Empty when half full, described by one reviewer as “hilarious”. In addition, he has had short stories published and also writes about writing for Writing Magazine for which he also pens a monthly column. He first travelled to South East Asia some thirty years ago, and has visited regularly – especially to Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand - for both work and holidays every year since. His travels have produced two further published books: Beguiling Burma and Smile because it happened about Thailand (both are published by ReThink Press). He lives in the United Kingdom, in Maldon in Essex, where he writes looking out over the River Blackwater

brilliant read and didnt want it to end.
His easy flowing style I found quite charming. I have never read a book so quickly.
His knowledge of South East Asia, and the amusing encounters with passengers he meets along the way make it an intriguing journey.
The highlight for me being the section of the journey on the Orient Express, starting at Butterworth, Malaya.
Put this on your holiday reading list and you won't be disappointed.
I enjoyed the account of some of the most opulent hotels in Asia with Raffles, Oriental Bangkok and Marriot hotels featured as well as the renowned Chiva-Som Spa. On the Eastern & Oriental Express experience the local scenery and people made interesting reading and fellow travellers proved to mix well and service and food were excellent.
Truly a first class read with humour never far away.
