Since venturing cautiously from his native North-East England, Gareth Clark has worked in travel and entertainment publishing across the Middle East, Asia and Europe.
After editing Time Out magazines in Beijing and Abu Dhabi, he returned to the UK to write for Wanderlust for nearly four rapturous years.
He has also updated guidebooks on China, the UAE, Malta, Belgium and the Netherlands for Fodor's and Time Out. He is now a full-time freelance travel writer and a bashful scribbler of hurried bios.
