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

This is a 24 hour bookstore which all book lovers should visit in Taiwan. Beside Chinese books, they have a great variety of books and magazines in other languages, e.g English and Japanese. I can easily spend 3-4 hours browsing the books whenever I visit the store. Other than books, there are quite a few cafes and shops located at... More

The Eslite bookstore mainly sells books in Chinese languages, however they also have plenty of illustration books, magazines, comics. I spent quite a bit of time browsing through a few books that teach you how to draw and colour different flowers. It was an interesting book. This is also a good place if you want to get books about learning... More

This bookshop isn't very big but you will feel very serene here. I have been to larger bookshops but I just like this place so much. It wasn't very crowded here so I could actually find my books easily. Staff were very helpful and knowledgeable. Recommended.
