Meet the Author


Tom Vater first visited Cambodia in 2001 to document the indigenous minorities in Mondulkiri for the British Library’s International Sound Archive, and instantly fell in love with the country. A year later, Tom cowrote and managed the production of a documentary on Angkor for German-French television, which gave him the opportunity to spend several weeks among the temples. Since then, he has been back to Cambodia several times a year to cover the country’s politics and culture for many different publications. On his journeys around the country, he has joined kings, pilgrims and soldiers, secret agents, pirates, hippies, policemen, and prophets.

Tom is the author of numerous books—nonfiction titles, guidebooks, and a novel—and has cowritten several documentary screenplays for television and cinema. Tom’s feature articles, mostly on Asian subjects and destinations, have been published around the world, by The Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, The Times (UK), Marie Claire, and many others. He is The Daily Telegraph’s Bangkok expert. His most recent nonfiction book, Sacred Skin, published with award-winning photographer Aroon Thaewchatturat (aroonthaew.com)—is an international bestseller, featured in TIME Magazine and on CNN.
