I have been frequenting Dasa for several years now and look forward to when I run out of reading matter so I can pop back again. Reasonable prices, great selection of titles on 3 floors, coffee on the ground floor. Also a "book readers" atmosphere about the place, convenient to find, open every day, friendly staff. Who could ask for... More

I read a lot and grabbed two books from home prior to heading out to SEA. Unfortunately, one of the books I grabbed I had already read. I was planning to swap it along the way at a guest house but I didn't find anything interesting. Then I thought I would grab a book at the airport in Phuket. Super... More

I read about this place and went looking for it. It's a small place filled with stories! They have 3 floors of books and serve good coffee as well. I bought a book, had a coffee and stayed to read in my book. Love it!

I was in Bangkok and realised I'd left my lonely planet on the plane! I needed to find a shop that sold English written books and I came across this little place. Actually it's not that little! It has 3 floors full of books of different subjects. Lots of travel books and novels which you can buy for a very... More

I think this bookstore should be interesting to those travelers/tourists who simply want to browse the whole range of various famous or fledging writers for some good books to console themselves in the sun or somewhere relaxing. Disappointed by the disapperance of the stores like 'Shaman' or 'Aporia' on Khaosan Road, I usually visit this haven instead due to its... More

It's a must visit place for book lovers. They have a great collection of books with cheap prices and the books are in really great conditions. I'm glad I found this place over the internet while I searched for bookstores in Bangkok.

My wife and I loved Dasa. We could have spent hours and hours perusing the three floors of used books. They have a vast collection of books in English, and on the top floor one can find literature in many different world languages.

The sight of thousands of books will greet you as you walk in. Walk up the stairs, and there's much more to see and experience. The staff are very friendly, too. The best point is that the books are cheap. Make sure you bring lots of money with you and have enough at the airport for the extra baggage you'll... More

Don't be discouraged by the small shop front, there are two more floors of books upstairs. Dasa has a wide variety of literature and books in English and to a lesser extend in other languages. Prices are excellent, and staff very nice and helpful. Recommended if your running short on things to read while visiting this great city.
