First time visiting the ESlite bookstore chain. The outside of the building didn’t give out a bookstore vibe. When you enter the store you are presented with an aesthetically pleasing interior, exposed tall polished timber roof. It is a multi level book store that have...More

It’s basically a well-functioned and large fancy bookstore plus shopping mall. Eslite as the best bookstore in Asia has a good reputation and provides some of most lovely brands here especially attractive to youngsters. The food is very inviting and of good quality. You would...More

Ok bookstore with cafe and shops inside a mall- I prefer more books and less fancy stuff.....hard to find good second hand bookstores in China. Nice place to read and kill time but other than not- nothing too special

Eslite book city is not a book store, it’s a mall with book theme. In a world with more and more Ipads, laptops and tablets, it’s wonderful to find a huge space reserved for paper and ink. There’s nice ‘history staircase’ leading up to the...More

Visiting the Eslite bookstore is an experience. The bookstore is on the top floor of a complex. It is very large with a large collection of books for book lovers. Although it is run by the same chain in Taiwan and Hong Kong, almost all...More
