[quote-0]It was more a true story about drug smuggling in Thailand that scared the hell out of me and kept making me think people had put stuff in my bag. Damage Done: My 12 years of hell in a Bankok prison by Warren Fellows. Great book, but not so good to read just before you are going over the border from Thailand to malaysia!![/quote-0]
Unless you are smuggling yourself you shouldn’t be worried. And if you are, better not to be caught in malaysia!
It’s not a book about travelling, and I certainly don’t recommend it to anyone who gets offended easily, but I highly enjoyed “I hope they serve beer in hell” It keeped me entertained on the flight back from thailand.
Another one I recommend is “True Spirit” it’s about the 16 year old girl who sailed on her own around the world, even better her hometown was where I was staying in Australia at the time!! Although she doesn’t stop on land it captivates the spirit of travelling on your own.
This might be a little odd but I always read the Wiki page on the town/city/area I’m in as it gives a little cultural background to it as well as give you a few ideas on what to do!!
Thats my 2 cents worth 🙂
