River Books

Fine press titles on history and culture

Save to my Account

Opposite Wat Po and the Museum of Siam, you’ll find this cozy little bookshop stocked with titles of regional interest, as well as a few other items including postcards and Thai handicrafts. River Books is in the publishing business because they love what they do: producing beautiful coffee table books in English (and occasionally in Thai) that focus on the history of Siam and Southeast Asian arts and culture.

You might have a difficult time choosing which books to bring home with you. How about a copy of Very Thai by Philip Cornwel-Smith, a colorful guide to everyday culture here. Or perhaps you would enjoy Thai Folk Wisdom, a publication centered on traditional proverbs and illustrated with Contemporary Thai art. This is also a good place to pick up Thai Taxi Talismans, a fun and fascinating book about the sacred decorations found in Bangkok cabs by the co-author of this app.
