There are many places available around the clock in Taipei other than the MacDonald's and 7-11 cv stores. This bookstore is still so far my favorite spot to remaind current about the publications in English and Chinese. Comfortable, easy and quiet ambience and one cafe on the 2nd floor which normally operates from 7:15am to 2:00am next day is a... More

Had some time to kill when waiting for colleagues of ours at this location and almost forgot our appointment! Nice selection of books, periodicals and gifts on pretty much every subject matter. The dining area is a good way to relax also. Ambiance is great. A must see stop away from the "tourist traps"

Open 24 hours which means u can visit any time u wanna. Personally, I am not big fan of this place since too many tourists to have a look and a bit noisy. But fairly speaking, they have good selection of books either in Chinese or English and have lots of specialized book which is worthy to dig some nice... More

The opening time is 24 hours. You can find numerous books there. I admired that customers sit freely to read books. This creates the fantastic readinimg environment.

This bookstore is like a library. Table & chairs are provided. I saw a lot of people reading and doing research. The price is cheaper than my country. May go to have a visit if you want book.

Very well known, well lit and managed bookstore, which attracts classy (yes, better looking) customers who linger for hours day and night. I tried their new food service (small deli) in the small cafe - not bad either. Lots of people sit around (and many on the floor) the store reading books. Good vibe for any tourist to get a... More
