TAXI TO ASIA
Follow the driver
Taxi drivers are probably the first people you meet upon setting foot in a new country, but also the most colorful and clued-in characters.
TAXI TO ASIA is the first travelogue to tap the lively personalities of these informal ambassadors with their huge personal treasure trove of tested tips and tricks to get around Asia's most dynamic destinations.
But cabbies are also representative of a city's working class and following them allows us to better understand the common man’s pains and hopes. They show us that living in a big bustling city isn't always a bed of roses and give us a reality check on how people are living today in Asia.
