Bangkok Publishing Residence

This Old Town museum looks back at Thailand’s publishing heyday. 

Tucked away in the Old Town, Bangkok Publishing Residence is a museum-slash-hotel that’s a throwback to Thailand’s publishing heyday of the mid-20th century.

Occupying the six-block shop-house that used to house the publisher behind the legendary though long-gone Bangkok Magazine, the venue is packed with old publishing paraphernalia, from printing machines to newspapers dating back half a century. Design geeks can also get a glimpse of spectacular pre-Photoshop, hand-drawn illustrations, too. 

The museum doesn’t allow walk-in visits—make a reservation at 02-282-0288 or 08-1780-6229. Planning an Old Town staycation? Rooms start from B2,400 during the soft opening until Sep 30.
