Cookbook shops in Bangkok

MOst of the books shops in Bangkok just have a cookery section... nothing special, though I would say Kinokuniya has a better selection. Singapore has one bookshop dedicated to cookbooks only. It also has a little cafe and a test kitchen. Its called 25 degrees Celsius ( Singapore also has a better selection of food-related books in any of the shops. I have bought some amazing ones that you couldn't possibly find in Bangkok.

Thailand Food Reccomendations - From Street Food to Resorts?

Khaosan Road is a great backpacker place, it also offers plenty of food options... Chatuchak weekend is another great place to sample local delights. The food courts in any of the shopping malls are are also good. Just point at what you would like to eat. If you want any thing more specific, let me know.

Anyone recommend an alternative "foodie" market in Bangkok to Chatuchak?

THe floating markets are tourist traps..... just go to one of the food courts in any of the shopping malls....
