Known as a thriving hub for the south-east Asian book market, the event attracted 1.6 million attendees in 2011, browsing products from 412 exhibitors hailing from 18 countries.

Entry to the event is free of charge, allowing guests to turn up and peruse a huge selection of books, from novels and comics to reference guides and study materials.

In addition to the standard stalls, the event will play host to a number of talks, with last year's festival including 65 forums and seminars, as well as 88 staged activities.

Those who are interested in attending will find the venue on New Rachadapisek Road in central Bangkok, located within easy reach of BTS skytrain, MRT subway, taxi, bus and car routes.
