Anyone who’s looking for something a bit different to do in Bangkok this week should head to Khlong Toei Port 1 to check out the world’s largest floating book exhibition.
The exhibition is being hosted by the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration, who have stocked the MV Doulos, which is the world’s oldest ocean-going passenger ship, with more than 8,000 books in a variety of languages, including a large English selection.

According to a report by The Nation, Bangkok Metropolitan Administration Public Relations Department chief Saensuk Satongkhun stated that this is the fifth time the vessel, which is by the non-profit charity organisation Good Books for All, is visiting Thailand. Visitors will also have the opportunity to explore the 130 meter long vessel and watch stage performances as well, as taking part in a range of interesting activities.

The floating exhibition will be held until August 23 Tuesdays to Saturdays from 10:00 to 21:00 and on Sundays and Mondays from 14:00 to 21:00. There is an admission fee of just 10 baht to get on board.
