Aug - JJ's Science Adventure: Magnets

I must commend the father for being very resourceful when it comes to coaching AJ.  Somehow, he got hold of this book before we went Bangkok during the September school holiday & AJ had been able to understand Bangkok more.

This book has been useful to AJ as it introduces practical tips & places of interest in Bangkok from a child's perspective.

We would probably give Tuk-Tuk a miss because weather was hot & the roads were dusty if AJ didn't insist that we must take 1.  Without reading this book, I wouldn't have known that there is Motorcycle Taxi in Bangkok as well!

The boy had his wish granted.  We were in the tuk-tuk, on the way to Madame Tussauds.

So, if you are heading to Bangkok with your children, do borrow this book from National Library Board for them to read.  It is a perfect way to hype up the tour, build up the enthusiasm & know more about the city.

We went to Bangkok in September & we stayed in Glow Pratunam Hotel (read review here), visited Madame Tussauds, Safari World and the Floating & the Railway Markets.


  1. Thanks for the reminder! I'm just going soon next month. I used to get books for my boy to read, but have forgotten about it this time!

    1. Hooray! Managed to publish this! Thanks for re-sending, Sammi!

    2. I shall go to the library tomorrow.
