Palasari Book Market

Palasari is the name of a book market located on the street which becomes its name. This market is very popular among students and book lovers. They love it not only because they can find almost any books here (textbooks, new and used books, local and imported books, and even vintage old books) but also because the books sold here are offered at prices that are much lower than those offered by large chain book stores.



I like this book market because the atmosphere is very relaxed and friendly. The owners of the kiosks are always ready to help you and seem to be very knowledgeable about books. You can always ask them for a title or an author, and they will produce it in no time. If they don't have it, they would always know where to find it and direct you to a kiosk that may have it.



If you are a book lover, it's a place you would not want to miss when you visit Bandung.

Eki,
How wonderful to hear from you today on my blog. I have missed you. I will try to be better at visiting! I love books and hope the internet/ebooks won't be their demise! There is something so satisfying about holding one in your hands and turning the pages.

My first time heard about this kind of bookshop in Indonesia is from the movie 'Ada Apa Dengan Cinta'. I use to read a book 'Lepaskan Kembali Aku Ke Laut' (Indonesian Author)- Love it!

Yes, those places are where I am going to spend my whole time...

Aaa... Bandung. Kapan aku bisa ke sana? =)

oh i love books and have tons of them but if only i have enough time to read and not watch too much tv. ^0^
We have a familiar street here that sells old paperbacks and textbooks as well, but it's not as enticing and as orderly as this one.
