This cool new branch has alot of cultural and creative type shops, restaurants, and workshops.
It just opened on August 15 at the Songshan Cultural and Creative Park. It’s a great place to walk around except for one thing : everyone else thinks so too, especially on weekends.
For some reason, I went on a Saturday afternoon looking for a place to have lunch. This is the line (more than a dozen people waiting outside) just for some bread, albeit the bread of our world-class baker Wu Pao Chun. I was hungry, but not that hungry. I looked all over the place for a quick bite, but every single seat was taken and with a waiting list. (I ended up eating outside the venue)
But back to what’s cool about this new branch. There are alot of cultural shops like that of our local-gone-global brand of porcelain above, Franz Collection.
There are various artistic workshops scattered throughout the building like the one above.
And what I love about the place is the touch of nature nearby. The kids are watching some ducks.
I was planning to take some more pictures (perhaps in a later post), but I was too hungry and the place just too crowded. I could barely really shop and see the products in some of the stores. Highly advise avoiding the weekend if you want to check out the newest Eslite!
