Highly Recommend Bookworm, Beijing

At night, I went to a bar (what they call themself as a library, but I expected to go to a bar or tea house), called Bookworm in Sanlitun area in Beijing.

It is a nice place to spend an free afternoon or night there. There are many books (16,000 as described in the store card) inside the library. Most of them are English books and magazines that you can borrow or read inside the library. It is much better beyond my expectation. The foods and drinks are not expensive. Typical coffee and tea are 15 RMB per cup, which is not bad.

Here are some pictures taken with my Nokia 6670.

    There is a bookstore near Yuanmingyuan called “One Way Street Library”, which is supposed to be very unique. I haven’t been there yet, but have read enough rave reviews and am going to check it out.

    I met Wang Yi at Bookworm last week when I was visiting in Beijing. It is a great place for casual business meetings and friends gatherings. The food is excellent!

    In fact I like it so much that I decide to make it my temporary “living room” the next day, I invited several friends over during the day and evening. In-between the meetings, I got my emails done with their Wi-Fi Internet service.

    Wonderful!

    Jian Shuo, thanks you for your recommendation.
