Noone seems to sell the Bangkok Post or Nation anywhere around this BTS station at PraKanong?
There is one coffee shop that has it next to the escalators but I don't feel like sitting in their everytime I want to read the paper just to have to wait for God knows how long until some other guy is finished reading the only copy they have.
Visual Reenactment of me waiting for the paper at the coffee shop:
I moved here a last month thinking it would be easier to pick up a copy of the Bangkok Post than it was where I lived in Din Daeng but not so.
Where is the closest shop in that area that sells the Post or Nation?

you moved house to be closer to a newspaper?
What about a subscription?

Mental isn't it? I moved all the way to Thailand for a six pack of Pabst Blue Ribbon.you moved house to be closer to a newspaper?
It was worth it too.
Don't want to subscribe to the paper as I'm only interested in a few select days of the week. I just can't believe that of all the places on Sukhumvit road I pick the one that doesn't sell any.
No big deal. Its just after 7 years here I still haven't gotten over the fact that I can pass by 30 working brothels before I pass by a store that sells a newspaper.
Why dont you read it online?

Too long in Exile, baby you just arent my friend.
Too long in Exile my friend, Baby you can never go home again.
At Suk 71 Soi Pridi Banomyong 5 (Soi 5) you can find the Post at the Albino owned shop before the New York Bar.

Nice one. I knew there had to be at least one in the area considering how many farangs I see milling around. See when I lived outside of Bangkok I accepted things like the nearest place that sells a loaf of bread is 7/11 and thats 5km away or I know for a fact I can't buy a steak or pizza that doesn't come with a side of ketchup.
Sometimes its nice to get wired on coffee and read the a proper newspaper, front to back... I'll go check that out. I know where it is.
Save a tree and read it online.

I was always pissed off with how many newsagents I'd have to walk past before I found 30 working brothels in Aus.Originally Posted by Deaner

Deaner there's another coffee shop across the street right
at the foot of the south-western BTS staircase with the paper(s).
And smaller crowds...as for the comparative quality of the coffee...
still not sure...I think M Coffee is pretty decent actually.
Anyhoo...just another option if you're out and about down there.
Sometimes I felt silly being looked at in M Coffee by every person
on the BTS escalator going up...
I lived in VIP mansion on soi 21 and had a Bkk Post in the supercold
lobby with the hot counter girl so I never worried about where to get
a paper in Prakanong myself....
19 year subscriber here. Had the first in Samui. At that time it was first and formost for Trink. That is a fact. Bernie used to have a full page, that was insightful.
I don't live in Bangkok, but when I'm in Bangkok I usually buy one (usually The Nation) upstairs in the BTS shop zone, if the BTS is open (don't know about early mornings).Originally Posted by Deaner
You know probably better than I what time the BTS starts running in the morning. There's usually a news agent in every (?) station, so why not buy it there?

If you fancy moving house again OP I can recommend a plethora of suitable newsagent around On Nut BTS
Excuse me for not taking this seriously .....
