Where's the best place to buy books in Bangkok?

At a glance ...

For those of you who still prefer the feel of a real book in your hands, there are limited options across Thailand with many book shops offering just a handful of titles. However, look no further than the Vitkit Chula Book Center in Central Bangkok.


This place looks more like a library than a book shop and it has the largest stock of English language books in Thailand, and if you have time on your hands you can order most things and they should be able to get it in for you.


The majotiry of the books here are educational, but there is an impressive collection (for Thailand) of fiction and non-fiction books on offer.


Best reached by Siam BTS station (exit 2): 10 minutes’ walk. This place is next door to The British Council building. See map.
