  • Taiwan has been reading a good wind and bought a lot of books at a price 20%-30% more than Hong Kong. Even if you do not buy a book nails can not be a nuisance! In addition to books, but also introduced a lot of small boutique shop, feel the Wenqing bar

  • It's a good choice for people who love books or want to get a bit of a roll on their holidays. Complex camps, not only books, but also a lot of restaurants and food. The arrangement is elegant, the book area also has some seating to rest, the movement is also very clear, is worth a stroll.

  • This place is more than a book store. We spent 5 hours here and still didn’t manage to finish browsing everything. The book section is extensive and has a nice calming atmosphere. Unlike overseas book...  more »

  • I love book shopping. Whenever I have chance, I try to make a trip to visit the bookstore. Eslite has different branches in so many places. To Me, some are sizable and cannot get the books I want. Yet, this Xinyi store has few different level. It's so great! Not only I manage to find Japanese translation books that I always want, but also English books. I'm surprised to see some books have both English and Chinese version side by side.
  • One of the best bookstores in Taiwan. It caters to a wide audience and offers a rich variety of products. Despite its size, it still manages to maintain an intimate and cozy feel. If you are in Taipei and in the vicinity of this bookstore, you should definitely try to make a stop and explore the shop - it is worthwhile
  • This place is huge, 6 floors and filled with all kinds of interesting things. The books are of all kinds of subjects, majority in Chinese. And you don't know how many people in Taiwan still interested in flipping pages. While book stores in US and in HK are closing, this is a different atmosphere here in Taiwan and a very healthy one. I can't help but stopped to read for half and hour which hasn't been happening for years. Beyond books, you can still easily spend few hours in this place. I will revisit this shortly.
  • More than a bookstore. A sort of quirky department store seemingly designed by bookworms and artists. Cafe has nice coffee and wine.
  • What a great Dept store! Like Japan's Loft only better. Super well edited range that's very diverse.
