This huge public library offers a learning centre for Bangkok’s residents. Designed within a beautiful art deco building, the library spans three light-filled floors with 4,880-sqms of reading space – making it the largest public library in the city.

Along with quiet nooks and open reading spaces, there are desk areas for studying, a Kids’ Room and small activity area, and a computer corner with free Wi-Fi. The first level of the library is filled with new books, magazines, newspapers, a coffee shop, tourist booth and a 30-seat theatre. The mezzanine houses a range of bilingual books and media especially for kids. The second floor provides a small selection of foreign language books, and also features a study room and a separate multi-functional event space. And on the top floor, there’s a series of books that document the history of the Thai royal family along with a range of rare publications that have been donated by overseas embassies.
