Discounts on English books

English books are among some of the highest-priced books in Vietnam, costing around VND300,000 (~USD12.86) and above for new print books. This is not an affordable price range for many students in Vietnam.

Thanks to the Internet, finding cheaper books – with up to 20% discounts – has become so much easier. TIKI, an online shopping website known for selling new but cheap books in both English and Vietnamese languages, is now offering clearance discounts of up to 70% on its English books.
