Thailand Book Companies, Thai Book Publishers


Books about Thailand, Books about Cambodia, Books about Southeast Asia - I spent years looking for these books, reading these books and making endless notes, when I was at University. When I came to study here in Thailand in the early nineties I was privileged to read many books in Thai language and enjoy a totally different literary heritage.

What I couldn't read here however was a good novel in English. Good readers were an essential item to be packed in your suitcase prior to do departure. Bookstores were few and far between and second hand bookshops almost non existent, and I am talking only fifteen years ago.

My how things have changed. The major book companies like Asia books have spread there operations. DK book store is still in Siam Square. It is however the Se-Ed book company that has expanded the most rapidly to establish a branch in every supermarket and shopping mall in Bangkok and many up country. I think they sell books in English. I say 'I think' because it is so difficult to get inside.

The aisles between the book shelves are narrow and usually thronged with Thais who go in to pick up and read the latest magazines. I have seen up to 50 people eagerly scanning computer, fashion, auto and even Buddhism magazines and books with maybe a couple of customers at the cash desk.


There are no public libraries in Thailand (that I know of) and the books and magazines are expensive for a Thai's budget. Ah well I will have to keep stuffing them in my suitcase.

A new method of purchasing books has emerged in recent years books online. Most titles of books about Thailand can be bought online through sites like Amazon. I would recommend someone with a little local expertise - Bangkok Book House. They have a fine selection of Thai books and books about Thailand. In Thai and in English. They also have a good handle on what is coming soon. Below is a selection of their books that can be bought online through their website http://www.bangkokbooks.com

If you are a writer looking to publish your book or maybe a book distributor looking for a partnership in Thailand then please email bangkokcompanies@gmail.com with your requests.
