  • Really pleasant atmosphere in this shop makes you want to linger. It bears saying that most of the books are in English. The prices are reasonable considering the limited supply of such books in the region. There are several rooms for different sections, lots of fiction and fantasy/sf, a room dedicated to books on Vietnam and SE Asia (many of which don't turn up on searches of popular online booksellers and are quite interesting). The owner even gave me a discount for buying too many books! And it seems they are open to trade-ins as well.
  • A nice little bookstore with a great selection of English titles. You can browse their selection online and reserve your book for pickup or have it delivered. Most titles are between 250k-300k and they have a big selection of 2nd hand books. Definitely worth the visit.
