While taking a stroll through Bangkok’s CentralWorld mega shopping complex, I came across this beautiful and out-of-the-box idea of a point of purchase display of TASCHEN books. Take a look at the picture below. Amazing, isn’t?
You may be awestruck with fact that, although you may not find many people in Bangkok fairly conversant in English, yet in order to attract tourism, the country offers a lot many bookstores!
Once this point of purchase display (pictured above) caught my eyes, then and then I made no delay in grabbing a number of shots. There are other bookstores in Bangkok, among which, Kinokuniya (a Japanese chain) is the largest.
This German book publisher TASCHEN had this one-of-a-kind ‘pop-up store’ for the first time in South East Asia. TASCHEN is best known for its books on art and photography. Its various titles include a range of sophisticated books on world-famous artists and photographers.
Apart from medical tourism, Bangkok offers a huge collection of large bookstores like Kinokuniya, Bookazine, Asia Books, B2S, etc. This bookstore Kinokuniya is one of the coolest attractions of Bangkok that I could think of. It not only offers Japanese and English books but also offers books in German and French languages. Although most ladies I know at my home country would possibly pick Bangkok as a shopping destination, yet I believe it should also be known for its well-liked bookstores that they have for the tourists.
Here is a picture inside the sky train transit station which was on the way to Siam Paragon; Siam is a glass-and-steel über-luxury mega-mall that has the largest Kinokuniya bookstore in Bangkok. This is a picture I had grabbed of the transit advertising of one of Thailand’s chicken ready-meal CP brand. I quickly grabbed this photo since I thought that this transit ad’s presentation had a really amazing way of cutting through the clutter of numerous advertisements that were displayed inside the sky train station.
While I was heading towards Zen departmental store at CentralWorld shopping mall at Bangkok (CentralWorld is a seven-level lifestyle mega store), I took this picture of an aerial view of the exhibition that was going on at the entrance of the mall.
An out of home advertisement that caught my eyes was the fountain that was touting the brand name of the ‘Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!’ theme park at Pattaya. Below is the picture of the display that I took.
Last but not the least; I want to finish today’s post with an interesting picture that caught my eyes while I was on my way from Pattaya to Bangkok with friends. You might notice a street vendor parking his cart-full of stuff toys while taking a break from pulling his cart (or in other words, his store!) of stuff-toys that he ferried from one place to another:
I hope you like my post on the serendipity on the streets of Bangkok.
