Neilson Hays Library

From the web site, "The Neilson Hays Library was founded in 1869 by the Ladies' Bazaar Association, which formed the Bangkok Ladies' Library Association to serve the reading needs of the large English-speaking community in Bangkok. The building and property now occupied by the Library were part of an endowment received from Dr. Hayward Hays in 1922 in memory of his wife Jennie Neilson Hays who had served on the committee of the Library for at least 25 years. It is the oldest non-profit association in the Kingdom of Thailand."

Rich wood, cool air and quiet inside the library, and lots of nice books to look at and check out.

As a Palm Treo 700p user, I've been waiting for a phone with a better camera AND a full key/thumb board. I'm not sure you new phone is right for me, but it does look pretty attractive. How do you enter text?
