  • The bookstore is still the top draw here but the shops selling household items and body care products are quite neat and are worth a look. There are also fancy coffee shops and restaurants. The bookstore is primarily Chinese but they do have a decent collection of English books.
  • Book selection has been sufficient. Curious, cute and interesting knickknacks abound upstairs and make for nice presents. The stationary section is filled with the best gift wrapping materials I've seen in Taipei. However, everything feels overpriced. Use your best judgement.
  • Biggest bookstore in Taiwan. Here you can find all kinds of book you want to read, as well as some creative design product. You can just find a corner sit and read, spend whole afternoon in this wonderful place.
  • This is a reader's paradise, I've seen a bookshop this big anywhere in the world. To put things in perspective, I was able to find English books that are not sold in New Zealand here. The range of products sold here are also very diverse, they even have several restaurants or café within the bookshop, although food offered there are relatively expensive and they do charge tips. I highly recommend anybody travelling in Taipei to visit this place.
  • The tallest building in Xinyi district when it's just opened 12 years ago. It's still a great book store with some small shops in lower floors. You'll find a large selection of books and music here.
