Contact Steve Vickers, a freelance writer and journalist

I'm a freelance journalist, travel writer and guidebook author based between the UK (cold) and Sweden (colder).

I've worked for The Independent, The Washington Post, The Observer, BBC Radio 4, Which? and Rough Guides, among many others, and grabbed front-page headlines with my investigative research. I also built this website. You won't find any adverts, sponsored blog posts or phoney travel recommendations here; just some of my work, plus stories from out on the road.

Burma from the border

Filed under: Burma,Thailand — stevenjvickers @ 7:06 pm

A sneak peek inside Burma from Mae Sai, the northernmost town in Thailand. Foreigners can cross into the country here, but only for one day – and the US $10 ‘admin’ fee goes straight into the hands of the regime.
