The publishing-specific street features a cluster of bookstores and the city’s big-name publishing organizations all of which are housed in the old buildings of the 1930’s and 1940’s. Old music drifts from bookstores where shelves are loaded with lusty furniture and curios. A great place for hanging out with friends or reading a book while sipping on coffee.
Getting there: Take subway line 9 to Jiashan Road station or subway line 10 to Shanxi South Road station.
Attraction: Hanyuan Bookstore
In a room of European style, you can find western carved furniture, bulky gramophone, fusty hand-cranked telephone and 8mm film projector. The nostalgic feeling is further cemented by another room where Ming and Qing gewgaws could intrigue.
