Owners Yo and Num have packed this little store in the Old Town with Thai and English books, as well as a good choice of souvenirs like magnets and bags. A good place to grab an iced coffee or tea while temple hopping.

How best to spend your afternoon than by browsing books while sipping from a delicious selection of Thai iced teas? The soft-spoken owner (who is also a travel writer) decided to focus the collection on books related to travel and Southeast Asian art. Fiction and the odd thought-provoking titles are also included, catering to a wide variety of tastes. A large portion of the English collection also focuses on Thai and Asian studies, and you can get your hand on any number of Eng-Thai phrasebooks here. Fancy trying out your Thai skills? The cozy atmosphere of Passport Bookshop is a welcome refuge from the hustle and bustle of Bangkok streets. Since it's opening in 2001, this cute book cafe has been offering quiet afternoons to bookworms and travel-lovers alike. Fun fact. Did you know that passport in Thai literally translates as "travel book"?

Another hangout spot for bibliophiles out there! Tucked away in the neighborhood of Sheung Wan, this two-storey bookshop offers local and Taiwanese literary selection and a bit of English pieces. Definitely a hangout spot to get away from, Mount Zero hosts book clubs and fairs, get a chance to meet your favorite authors, plus a discussion of your book picks! This bookshop also has a selection of handcrafted stationery and homewares. They are open from 11 am to 6 pm, Monday to Saturday. What makes it more engaging is their occasional free books selection at the entrance!

Looking for something antique and old-school? Then this bookstore is for you. Reading books make me timeless (as this bookstore suggests). Probably on top of my list to visit!
