My name is Richard Barrow (ริชาร์ด แบร์โรว์) and I am a British expat living here in Thailand for over twenty years. I have been blogging about tourism in Thailand since 1998. I was one of the first bloggers and now I’m probably the longest running travel blogger in Thailand. On this website, you will find all of the latest travel news and travel advice. I also post daily on Twitter and Facebook. Visit RichardBarrow.com for a list of some of my other websites about Thailand.
