Why Eslite BookstoreTunnan is special ?

Eslite Bookstore is one of the largest retail bookstore chains in Taiwan. It also provides one of the largest English language publications and translation materials in Taiwan. Its headquarters are in Xinyi District, Taipei.

Eslite was established in 1989. The first shop was located in Dunhua South Road, Daan District, Taipei, with a focus and emphasis on art and humanities-related books. Since then, the company has expanded and set up more shops and increased its range of titles on offer. Eslite Bookstore was the first to set up a 24-hour bookstore in Taiwan at its Dunhua store, attracting night-time readers.

What to explore at Eslite BookstoreTunnan?

Eslite Bookstore is located at 2 different locations – Songgao Road and Tunnan Road – in Taipei. Eslite Bookstore is a library-cum-bookstore. It retails books but features tables and chairs in the expansive gallery. The provision allows guests to spend some time with the books in order to decide which one they need to buy. Both the bookstores are big and loaded with books in multiple languages and on wide ranges of subjects. The Tunnan branch remains open throughout the day. The branch at the Songgao Road has a cafe inside but the attendant is not hospitable.

To a South-east asian who do not have the luxury of big bookstores, It offers the latest trendy options and clothings, each of its branch has its own specialties and different from the other focused on paper-made stuff , some on wood furnitures, another store has a sub-store that sell all kinds of animal-soft toys and dinosaurs'replica and stuff (a store not to be missed by boys & girls who loved animals and pets or love discovering nature)For those who are into fashion and trend, plenty of magazines (as well as those from Japan) are available! Some of its stores offers taiwan-made product as well as great tea and food from taiwan(if you are into taiwan)Some censored (in other ctries) books are available here too....woooo!While it s not cheap to get english books from taiwan, do watch out for its special offers too!It keep me so much occupied than walking on the streets and going for taiwan's night marketsIt has restaurants/eateries and cafes in it too!!!!! Plenty of good food and drinks in a much cosy yet relaxing environment

A nice looking bookstore but there a not many foreign books. The crew hardly speaks English, so assistance is not great.

A great bookstore - I was like a kid in a candy store.Unfortunately, while their shelves were filled with all sorts of cookbooks, I couldn't find one on Taiwan's street food and traditional cuisine - not in English anyway! So that was a bit of a letdown.

The main Eslite bookstore houses over a million books! There are other branches too around the city. All Eslite stores are busy with shoppers and I was one of them. Books are very affordable here with lots of selection. Most books are in Chinese but there are English language ones too.
