From Beggar To Butterfly

by Peter Jaggs

Experience a world of beggars, boxers, lady-boys and bar-girls and the men who come to meet them. Take a glimpse into the colourful lives and gain an insight into the secrets of some of the remarkable people who live on the streets of the extraordinary city of Pattaya.

Extended ebook version with 10 new stories

About The Author:

Peter Jaggs is from Essex in England and has spent the best part of the past twenty five years in Thailand since he was in his early twenties and has visited every province in the country.

Peter has always believed that real work is a necessary evil and should only be undertaken when funds are required for the extended bouts of bar-hopping, fishing and hanging out on beaches he much prefers.

However, he does enjoy writing about his beloved second home and has had articles, stories and poems published in several newspapers and magazines.

Although Peter loves women - especially of the Thai variety - he is not married because he feels that a wife would be as much of a hindrance to his freedom and irresponsible lifestyle as a regular job. Besides this, no female on God’s earth could put up with him for any length of time apart from his mother.

Peter is currently based between Devon, England and Pattaya City and spends an equal amount of time in each of his two homes with frequent excursions to other favourite venues in Asia.

Peter also wrote the first ever book in the English language published on freshwater fishing in Thailand.


“An ironic historical perspective, doses of broad humor and a wide range of Thai characters’.

James Eckhardt, Phuket Gazette

“The characters were so representative of the people I had met in Pattaya that I felt I knew many of them already”.

Temujin, Prostitution Research Centre

“I think Peter Jaggs’ books are in danger of being recognized as modern classics of Pattaya. I have never read anything so good set amongst the sois and bars of Pattaya”.

Richard Ravensdale, Pattaya Trader

“There are more than a few books by farangs about Pattaya, ‘From Beggar to Butterfly’ one of the best. While perusing it James Michener’s tales of the South Pacific came to mind”.

Bernard Trink, Bangkok Post
