Are you ready to delve into another fun and exciting travel adventure? George and Paolo hop on a tuk-tuk to explore tropical Thailand, traveling from north to south, through Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Sukhothai, Kanchanaburi, Phuket, Phang Nga and Krabi, enjoying the wonders of the country's culture, food, and nature.

We received this book to give an honest review.

I read this book to A instead of K as it was more for her age than his. I knew he would have been bored with it. A I figured would have enjoyed the pictures and learning about some place new. I was a bit wrong, she didn't really enjoy the book and kept asking if there was something else to read. The pictures were okay, that is really all I can truly say about the book. 
I felt that this book was not enjoyable to read. It just had a small part of information about each place these two visited and then it had their checklist of places to see and visit. I would have liked more pictures or more neat information but done in a fun way.  I believe it lacked uniqueness, and there should have been a way to pronounce the different places they went. Even though you may say it wrong at least you can see how it is broken down to pronounce. Another thing I noticed and this may have been a formatting error was that some pages were blank in between the cities visited.  You may enjoy the travels of these two friends and I say check the book out and see!
