This place is more than a book store. We spent 5 hours here and still didn’t manage to finish browsing everything. The book section is extensive and has a nice calming atmosphere. Unlike overseas bookstores, they don’t mind you standing there and read through the...More

Excellent source of English books - probably the best I've found in Taipei. Pleasant setting in the Eslite department store and very conveniently located right next to city hall bus station.

There’s an amazing selection of books but it’s way more than that! We spent an enjoyable 3 hours browsing around this 7 floor shopping mall and barely covered a quarter of it. We particularly enjoyed the kids section that had a great selection of clothes,...More

Not a huge selection but a nice variety. Nice selection of consumer goods as well. A few restaurants coffee shops and a food court seal the deal. I’ve been to bookstores across mainland China and this one makes them all look weak.

Eslite was one of the favourite bookstores on my 'must visit' list when I was in Taipei. My friend was a bookworm hence we spent a few hours shopping for books and stationary.

Whenever we visit Taiwan, we always go to Eslite in their various locations. Primarily a very well-stocked bookstore, they also offer a wide variety of boutique-style concessions throughout the store selling high-quality unique items. They also have cafes and restaurants in most of their locations....More

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