  1. It is easy to find and it’s only 10 minutes’ walk from East Nanjing Road Station. All the staff can speak English so that they can help you find the book you want. And you can find a café area to read books.
  2. It is located in Jingan Kerry Center and it’s open from 10 am to 10 pm. You will find stationary, a whole wall of magazines and books. The design is appealing and unique. It is a good choice if you want to bring you kids with you because it builds a specific area for kids.
  3. The last remaining outpost of Old China Hand Press after Reading Room closed down, this street-corner cafe is where you'll find niche stuff, like photo collections. You will find a really nice space upstairs, good for events or study-circles. But the staff is impatient if you don’t buy anything.
  4. It is a good-looking collection of stalls inside the rejuvenated K11. Mostly it's art references books, but it does have a lot of children's fairytale books.
  5. It has 4 separate buildings, each with different specialties. Two buildings are dedicated to men and women's apparel, the third has several foreign fashion brands, and the last one sells books and magazines and has a coffee shop. It looks quite modern.
