Ready your wallets, bibliophiles! After over 10 years, the world’s largest floating book fair, Doulos Hope, is finally back on the Philippine shores.

The Doulos Hope ship is currently docked at the Rivera North Wharf in Subic Bay and will be open to registered visitors until March 5. After Subic, the fair will then head to San Fernando, La Union from March 7-24, then to Manila from March 28 to April 13, and Batangas City from April 16-28.

The La Union stop will dock at the San Fernando International Seaport, while the Manila and Batangas ports are yet to be announced.

Tickets are released weekly, so bookings for the said stops are not yet available as of this writing. However, bookings for Doulos Hope’s last week in Subic Bay are available here. According to the ticketing site, each regular ticket costs P50.

In the meantime, you can watch out for updates by following Doulos Hope PH’s Facebook page.

Doulos Hope returns to the country after its last visit in 2012, carrying over 5,000 titles. It also recently docked in Bangkok last November at the Khlong Toei’s Bangkok Port.
