The book lays out some great basic level information for heading over to Thailand and how to survive once you hit the ground. It also shows you how easily you can do it, which most of us forget as we get wrapped up in the day to day grind of just surviving instead of thriving. There is a huge added bonus to the material if you're into diving or martial arts.
I spent a summer in SE Asia in 2004. I've been wanting to get back ever since and finally after a decade, I'm on my way, thanks in part to Johnny and his book. I found Johnny via a YouTube video showing one of his many apartments in Thailand. This lead to finding his blog, ordering his book, and now being a regular listener of his Travel Like a Boss podcast.
Like many others have stated, I feel like I have seen Johnny's growth over the last year through his videos, blog, and even a new book. It has been one of the most motivating things in my life this year, and has lead to a lot of personal success. I'm currently packing up my apartment, putting everything into storage and starting an eight week trip to Asia as a test run for running my company remotely.
Johnny, if you're in town when I make it to Chiang Mai, I would like to say thanks and treat you to a Paleo meal!
This is a personal account and Johnny shares almost everything. The level of transparency he displays is amazing. You really feel like you are with him for the entire journey.
There are alot of details that he shares and he breaks down everything giving exact figures to things such as living expenses, rent and tickets. But more importantly is the why for doing all these things. I wish I had found this earlier like 5 years ago.
One of the major learnings you can take away after reading this book is that whatever your age is, right now make the most of it and don’t waste another year hopping, dreaming or putting off what you really want to do. He even gives examples of what happens to those who wait. It’s because of this that I have made my own plans to go to Chiang Mai and spend time there at the end of this year.
The chapter on attending a silent meditation retreat was one that really resonated with me and I suggest for anyone in a corporate job or being too long in the rat race to read it.
To conclude: GET THIS BOOK. TAKE ACTION.
12 Weeks in Thailand: The Guide Book to Travel Cheap, Learn Muay Thai all while Living the 4-Hour Workweek
I'm currently on my own trip in Thailand, and this book started it all!
Johnny really takes you with him on his adventures around Thailand and gives you an honest account of what its all like. This book is a very helpful resource if you're planning to come here. (especially if you're into Muay Thai or scuba diving!)
I'm in Thailand now training Muay Thai and bootstrapping my online business. I got to hang out with Johnny and he's an all around great guy!
I highly recommend his blog (JohnnyFD.com) and his podcast (Travel Like a Boss)! Also, his 2nd book, Life Changes Quick.
Good luck everybody and safe travels!!! :)
