World’s Largest Floating Bookshop Docks In Bangkok

by Editor with no comments

A 400-strong crew of volunteers from more than 45 countries works aboard the Logos Hope, the world’s largest floating book shop, currently docked at Bangkok’s Klong Toey port for the first time since 2009. The boat is run by GBA Ships, a Christian not-for-profit organisation based in Germany. The Logos Hope first set sail in 1980 and carries more than 5,000 discounted English titles, from college textbooks to cookery books. The ship will be docked in Bangkok until March 11 and is open to members of the public (admission costs 20 baht). Video by Chumporn Sangvilert and Pimchanok Phungbun Na Ayudhy
