"Another good bookstall disappears" Top 5 Page for this destination Beijing Favorite Tip by mke1963

Beijing General: 425 reviews and 520 photos

Favorite thing: After the disappearance, in summer 2003, of the excellent bookshop in the Lufthansa Centre, now another one has vanished.
The bookstall in the lobby had a particularly good selection of books on China. It is now a jewellery shop. A selection of books (maybe 5% of what was in the lobby bookstall) is now available in the Business Centre which is in the connecting corridor to Starbucks/Watsons. Oh...and the good little supermarket Nick's Mart is now outside the Lido, just alongside Starbucks.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
