What readers say about Tour Bangkok Legacies my e-book.

"Tour Bangkok Legacies" is my first self-published e-book, a guide book for the independent traveler to see Bangkok from a perspective of it’s history, culture and people, and how they preserved their way of life and cultural heritage within a modern thriving metropolis.

Here are some reviews by our readers.

“I’d lived for years in Bangkok and walked through many of its neighborhoods. I thought I knew the city, until I picked up Eric Lim’s Tour Bangkok Legacies. Now I’m reading as fast as I can, realizing how much new territory I have to explore in a city that has so much that I’ve yet to see.”

Janet Brown travel writer and editor at Things Asian Press which publishes books of all genres on Asia, from Chinese horror novels to cookbooks.

"Eric Lim displays the knowledge of this great city that can only come from exploring every nook and cranny of its labyrinthine lanes and conveying his discoveries in infectious prose that compels the reader to set off on his own explorations of the city, even if only from his armchair. He has ferreted out little-known lore and his enthusiasm in relating them is one of the delights of this book. These are sites that will be found on few tour itineraries and, as such, he adds another dimension to a Bangkok visit. A good, and most importantly, useful read."

Steve Van Beek, a river explorer and travel writer, has written several books on Thailand, my favorite being ‘Slithering South’, an account of his 58-day journey over 720 miles (1,160 km) as he rowed a boat from the headwaters of the Ping River in Northern Thailand down the Chao Phraya River and finally to the Gulf of Thailand.

“This book is the work of an author with a deep interest in the cultural history of one of the most fascinating cities of Asia which is also among the world’s top tourist destinations, Bangkok. For centuries, the centre-stage of political, cultural and economic developments in Thailand, Bangkok dates its origins to the 15th Century as a trading post during the period of the Ayuthaya Kingdom.

In publishing this book, Eric uncovers a treasure trove of gems of the Kingdom’s legacy. Through this exposition of Bangkok’s wats and temples, churches of the various Christian denominations, museums, markets, arts and crafts and the klongs or canals which have served a vital public transportation function in the traffic-congested capital.

Eric has made available a wealth of information about the origins, history and even folklore surrounding fascinating edifices, monuments and customs. This work of passion and labour of love is an invaluable source of information for anyone with more than a fleeting interest in Bangkok’s cultural landscape and history.”
