“Very nice Bookstore! Insider Tipp!”
Reviewed 8 December 2013

Very nice Bookstore! Near pathway to the white sand beach. English books as well as some other languages, e.g. German, are available including classics, fiction, travel books, etc. I bought my Bali guide there. You can also exchange books, but, of course, don't forget to tipp. The owner is extremely kind, so I'm sure you'll love this place. Some massage oil is also sold and he swears on its quality. If you are at the port for a ferry or are staying at Lemons House (great value) or Bamboo Paradise, it'll be in close proximity. It's opposite to bamboo paradise hostel, and you pass it on your way to the Bias Tugal beach (nicest one in PB). Just follow the signs or ask the locals, the store is romantically located at the end of a small alley.
You will see its worth a look!

“The nicest place I have come across in Padang Bai”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

This is a small, hidden store with a really nice selection of books run by a very friendly local in Padang Bai. Great to stock up for some relaxed hours at the beach!

The guy who runs the book store impressed me very much, coming from Kuta and starting his business here. Not that easy on Bali, if you are not part of a bigger family that helps you advertising. That's why I am putting it on trip advisor, he isn't familiar with this internet thing.

So spread the word and visit him! :)
