Whether it’s engaging prose designed to transport you to a far-flung idyll, a city guide showcasing the old and uncovering the new, the painstaking research required to update an entire good book or producing editorial materials for tour operators, David Leck has extensive experience across the travel sector.

His own passion for travel began as a lad but was cemented in his early 20s when he visited Bangkok, Hong Kong and Bali, beginning a love affair with South East Asia that has subsequently seen him explore Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Burma, Singapore and Malaysia.

And, when not heading east, he has been caught trekking glaciers in Patagonia, pounding the pavements of New York and Bangkok updating guide books, and reporting on - not to mention seriously testing his fitness - during a Muay Thai holiday in Koh Samui.

 


 

SPECIALTIES

Having travelled the region extensively over more than 25 years, my main area of expertise is South East Asia. I have considerable knowledge of Thailand and have written about the Kingdom for numerous publications, websites and guide books and on everything from its capital city, islands and beaches to its cuisine and national sport.

I have contributed to numerous outlets on cities including New York, Washington DC and Amsterdam and, as a qualified fitness instructor, have a particular interest in activity holidays. I’ve undertaken a significant amount of solo travel and enjoy writing about the pitfalls and the pleasures of “going it alone” for this growing demographic.

I work extensively as a copywriter and editor in the travel sector, producing news releases and press packs, website and brochure copy, trip dossiers and “ghosted” features.
