Moon Crayon in Phrae

If you are a bookworm who loves peace and tranquillity, going to a café might not be your preferred choice. However, when it comes to a bookstore, you definitely won’t refuse. Recently, we stumbled upon a bookstore in Phrae province that stands out from the typical bookshops due to its design reminiscent of old buildings in the historic districts of America. If you happen to visit this province, try dropping by Moon Crayon, a federal-style bookstore where you can enjoy your alone time with some good books.

Lovely American historic-themed bookstore to escape from the hectic pace

Located in downtown Phrae, Moon Crayon is a small bookshop with a Federal-style exterior design that catches the attention of anyone passing by. With a strong passion for books and the fact that there aren’t many bookshops in the city, the owner aimed to create a community where book lovers can come and enjoy their reading times.

You can find various types of books here, ranging from literature and history to psychology and international culture.
