We’re finally getting into the August grind. Well-rested after last week’s long weekend, and perhaps already looking forward to the next one — hint: happy early Mother’s day! — many of us are probably feeling oddly energised and ready to take on the month ahead. Whether you’re feeling up to making a start on that new goal, or kicking a bad habit, we’re all set to help you stay in that productive, motivated zone. And what better way to get inspired than by checking out some of the best happenings taking place in the city?

Art lovers should be sure to mark River City Bangkok’s newest multimedia exhibition on their calendar, along with the charity photo exhibition taking place at Restaurant Cajutan, with proceeds going towards Bangkok’s homeless cats and dogs. In other news, this week also sees an exciting Explorers Fair over at Bitec Bangna Hall — lovers of The Great Outdoors, this one’s for you! — as well as the return of the world’s biggest book sale ever.
