“Great choice of books and a cafe to chill in after the book expedition”

Kinokuniya Bookstore
Ranked #19 of 531 Shopping in Singapore
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 21 October 2017

This bookstore is conveniently located in Orchard Road, and has a great selection of books of both local and international interest, on a large variety of topics. One can spend hours browsing the books; and afterwards can sit at the cafe inside the bookshop. On weekends it can get a little busy, so weekdays are better for book browsing.

This is the place for you bookworms. It contains everything (book-wise). Collection from cooking books to comics. From Asterix to Handmaid's Tale. They also have collections in Japanese language (I don't speak Japanese, so I only know there are Mangas)

The book store is in the top floor of Takashimaya in Orchard Road. You can take MRT to ION Orchard.

I generally visit Kinokuniya Takashimaya; these people have everything and what I like the most is the service is very good makes me remember Japan Kinokuniya. It's a great place where you can find almost everything in therms of books. I visit this place maybe once a month. They have also a membership that once you sign in you get 10% off of any future purchase.

This bookshop is located on the fourth floor of Ngee Ann City along Orchard Road. It is a mini heaven for book lovers and has the widest range of books in this city state of Singapore. You can find literally thousands of books of any topic. The comics and travel section has the biggest selection that I have ever seen. You can spend hours there.

For tourists, please bring your passport along if you want to spend more than SGD100 worth of books as you can claim back the 6% gst. Please show it to the customer service cashier who will issue you a gst receipt.

This is heaven for bibliophiles and book lovers. It is located on the fourth floor of Ngee Ann City Shopping centre. It has the biggest collection of all manner and types of books. I love the comic and travel sections which is so huge. You can spend hours browsing through. The customer service is very friendly and helpful. If you buy more than SGD100 worth of books, you can claim back the 6%gst but you must have your passport.
