As many of our customers may recall, we opened and operated a popular bookshop in the heart of Bangkok, offering a wide selection of books on many areas of Asian culture. It was a great pleasure as well as a learning experience for all of us at Orchid Press to be engaged in the operation of the Orchid Books shop (pictured below) as it gave us a chance, at last, to interface directly with our readers in person—an opportunity that many in the publishing industry find difficult. Unfortunately, due to the closure for redevelopment of the complex we were located within, we were forced to close this shop several years ago.

While we have missed the lively discussions we had with our customers at the shop and the friends we made in the process, we continue to serve our customers’ needs via the Internet—our books remain available for purchase via our Website and other online retail facilities, such as BiblioDirect and ABE

Orchid Press is the only outlet offering titles in print, not only from the Orchid Press publishing operation but also from other Thailand-based presses, such as White Lotus Press, SDI, Silkworm Publications and River Books. Orchid Press also stocks many other fascinating new, as well as out-of-print, and rare titles on Asian countries, cultures, arts, histories, religions and other areas of interest, from fine publishers worldwide.

To view a selection of the current titles we have available for sale on our site, please click on the ‘Browse Shop’ link to the right. If there is a title in our general area of focus on Asian cultural topics that you would like to enquire about that is not listed on our site, please contact us by Email—if it is available in our stock we will be pleased to process a mail-order purchase directly. If a title of interest is presently not stocked in our shop we will do our best to try to source it for you.

Below, and in the ‘Events’ link on our Home page, for nostalgia’s sake, we have retained a few of the glowing reviews that our shop garnered, as well as records of a few of the exciting events that our staff organized and participated in.
