  • Very cool bookstore. Multiple stories with miscellaneous other shops on each floor. Great selection of books, and okay prices as well. Well-organized, and plenty of books are available in English. Definitely worth seeing if you like to read.
  • The Eslite bookshop has a wide selection of books, magazines and music CDs, in Chinese, English and Japanese. You can also get some shopping done with brands like Porter located within the store. However, it is a bit of a walking distance from the Taipei 101 / World Trade Center Station, and could be quite a hassle on rainy days.
  • It has a food court at B1 (Many different kinds of food). There is Chengpin book store with some stationary store. You can read and buy books (Chinese as well as some English books). Good place together with kids.
  • High-class department store. Good selection of fine goods and dining.
  • Love reading book? This is the place to find tons book to read. It's probably the most famous book store brand of the whole country. Staff are friendly. I only hope they have more book about computer programming. Some of the technology book are actually out-dated.
