About Orchid Press
BOOKS ON ASIA
Bangkok's first bookshop dedicated only to new and out-of-print books on the arts, cultures, religions, languages, histories, politics and personalities of the world's most dynamic region.
CUSTOMERS PLEASE NOTE - As of end December 2011, our Silom Complex shop (pictured to the left) has been closed due to the closure of the building in which it was located for the past six years. In the interim until we are able to reopen a physical shop we will continue to serve our customers' needs via the Internet, on the ABE site as well as our own website and other online outlets. We also maintain a small selection of our stock for sale in our office premises on Lat Phrao Wang Hin Road - if you wish to view these books please contact us for an appointment at the phone number to the left, or by Email to "orchidpr(at)orchidbooks.com"
This seller's inventory is temporarily unavailable. Please try your search with another AbeBooks Bookseller.

Orders usually ship within 2 business days (PLEASE READ FURTHER BELOW ON DELIVERY TIMES). Shipping costs are based on books weighing 2.2 LB, or 1 KG. If your order is heavy or oversized, we may contact you to request an extra shipping charge, as required. Overseas postage options include Surface or SAL (for books less than $200), Air, Speedpost or commercial courier service. We regret that we are not able to ship books or multiple-book orders valued at $200 or more by surface post.
****** PLEASE NOTE: Thai Post does not offer surface mail service to some Asian and Middle Eastern destinations, such as (but not limited to) China (PRC), Indonesia, Japan, Korea (ROK), Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan (ROC), UAE. On receipt of orders to ship to these countries we will send by next least expensive method (usually SAL) and may have to contact you for additional shipping costs if required.
****** DELIVERY TIMES: Orchid Press GUARANTEES prompt packing and shipment of your order following order processing. Most orders are dispatched by latest the day following your order acceptance and many will depart the very same day. Orchid Press CANNOT GUARANTEE the time it will take the postal system to transport your order to your destination address. Increasingly frequently, due to political and other global conditions, delivery times are stretching beyond the 25-45 working day (surface) or 8-14 working day (airmail) estimates that the ABE site quotes. Our delivery completion record is near 100%--that is, we virtually NEVER lose a parcel that we have dispatched. We ask you to please be patient with the current postal situation which is beyond the influence or control of all of us.
