This place has the artsy feel and it's a great place for book lovers! There are also other sections for music lovers, children's stuffs as well as stationary and gift department that cater to the various customers' needs. A pleasant place to shop!

Centered around one of the best 'bookstores' I have ever been in. The shops are wonderfully arranged, with an incredible eye for style and design. On multiple levels, with cafes in and about. Very close to W Taipei, Humble House and Le Meridien.

Wonderful place for book lovers! We spent half day there to soak in the ambience and find all the books we can't get in Singapore. There is even a whole floor designed specifically for children.

I am a customer, not Eslite, perhaps you need to contact them directly?
