What people are saying:

Many people who come to Suzhou will list the Eslite Bookstore as a must pass, a place that is not a tourist attraction, but must be visited. The biggest feature of Eslite Bookstore is that it is not just a bookstore. It covers a wide range of fields. When the word "culture" is mentioned, most people think of books and the like. As everyone knows, culture encompasses a wide range of concepts. Here, we can not only read books, but also experience cultural atmosphere beyond the bookstore. For example, artistic handmade products, illustration art, product display, photography and painting are all part of culture. There are only things you can't think of, but nothing to find. At the same time, there are coffee shops and snack bars inside the bookstore, allowing readers to have more choices during their breaks. Eslite Bookstore does not provide service, although the environment is good, the price is not close to the people! Now it has become the most famous internet celebrity attraction in Suzhou!

Additional Information


The mainland location of Taiwan's Eslite Bookstore is more than just a bookstore, but rather a comprehensive department store with a bookstore as its main component. The whole building is built with an impeccable sense of design. Starting from the east entrance, the 72 steps of the iconic 6-meter wide and 18-meter tall grand staircase make it magnificent beyond compare. The bookstore sells a huge variety of books. Reading and study areas where customers have been carefully planned out. There are exquisite stationery stalls, sweets shops, cafés, restaurants and even clothing stores distributed across the various floors. Many of the brands come from Taiwan. This is a haven and perfect destination for artistic types of all ages to spend an entire day.
