Bookworm was founded in 2001 as Hanoi’s exclusively English language bookshop. Nowadays, it has become a 2-in-1 platform, where visitors can enjoy drinks, snacks and lunchtime meals, in addition to shopping for their favorite books.

At Bookworm, customers are encouraged to browse at leisure for as long as they wish, immersing themselves in a “sea of books” with over 30,000 English books representing almost all genres in both new and second hand editions.

One of Bookworm’s features is a room dedicated to Vietnamese literature and lifestyle, photo books, cook books and interesting artifacts.

In the last 18 years, Bookworm has captured the heart of not only Hanoian readers, but also foreign expats and tourists.

“They have impressive stock for an independent bookstore in the middle of a foreign city. You can find all sorts of literature here, whether it's fiction, non-fiction, English or other languages. The excitement lies in discovering these little gems!”, says Rachelle Immelman (South Africa).
