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"?

No coffee is served here (fret not, there is a solution), but I felt this bookstore deserved a mention. Frequented and highly rated by the Japanese expat community, Japanese-owned Key Books is heaven for anyone on the search for second-hand Japanese comics and novels (I'm sure there are sooo many of you out there), though they do stock both English and Thai titles too. While I do enjoy browsing around Kinokuniya, here's your chance to get your hands on that manga volume you've been looking forward to read, at a fraction of the price. With a neat and organized interior, finding the book of your dreams will be a breeze. Now take your new purchase 2 buildings down the road to enjoy it at Ceresia Coffee Roasters.
