Logos Hope; World's Largest Floating Book Fair

The Logos Hope, which docked at Port Klang from 29th September to 23rd October has been attracting thousands of visitors from all over the place for their largest floating book fair.

Of course, myself and family was no exception. The best part is that Westport is just 15 minutes away from home and we could not possibly miss the chance to visit her when the ship is open to public to explore, right? ^^

Heard from friends that the ship is flocked by people from all over the country and during day time, we need to queue for quite some time before entering into the Logos Hope. So, my sis decided we go in the evening where there are less crowd. Indeed, when we depart from home at about half past 8 or so, there wasn't any queue! hahaah...

The ship is open to visitors from Tuesdays to Saturdays (10.00am to 10.00pm), Sundays (3.00pm to 10.00pm), and close on Mondays. The entrance fee for adult is RM1.00 and free entrance for children 12 and under.

Welcome to Logos Hope.

The variety of books have expanded compared to Doulos ship that has docked in Port Klang many many years ago.

I was particularly interested in their Music section as there were some really good bargain on their instrumental albums. Bought two Celtic music CDs priced at RM8.00 and RM16.00 each. *happy*

Other than books, they sell souvenirs of the ship, CDs, and other stationary too!

Children titles at Logos Hope, and lesser crowd at night!

If one did not find anything suitable for themselves, they can always opt to donate to the donation box on their way out from the ship. Like the board that says, "Your donation make a big difference!!" I'm sure it really will make a difference, even for a small contribution..

Anyway, we really enjoyed our time browsing at the books and none of us left the ship empty handed.

Here's shadows of myself and eldest niece.

til then, ttfn! ^^
