Don Ross hails from Manchester, UK, but Thailand has been home since 1969. He began his career in journalism with Allied Newspapers, the then publisher of the Bangkok Post and Bangkok World, and served as a travel editor for the group’s publications. For more than two decades he contributed a weekly travel column for the Bangkok Post.
He founded the regional travel trade publication, TTR Weekly, in 1978 and continues to serve as its editor working from his home in Chiang Rai, North Thailand.
If he is not editing or soaking up the mountain views from his cottage terrace, he most likely cycling along country lanes close to his northern home. An avid cyclist, he has explored most of Thailand and neighbouring countries on two wheels.
