Guangzhou bookstore

Whether you’re new to town, or have been here a while, you’ve probably found that finding English books in Guangzhou is a task that is easier said than done. This is especially true if the book you are looking for is a foreign book about China, in which case it might be deemed to controversial to be sold here. However, there are several excellent foreign bookstores in Guangzhou, some of them with a surprisingly diverse range that can make for a very pleasant afternoon’s browsing.
Guangzhou Book Centre is located on 123 Tian He Lu. There is a wide range of English-language books, including English translations of Chinese classics as well as English classics aimed at Chinese students (some complete, many abridged). There is also a good selection of Chinese-language textbooks, as well as English-Chinese dictionaries.

Xinhua Bookstore (276 Beijing Lu 北京路276号) is also a safe bet. The selection may not be quite as diverse as the previous two suggestions, but prices are better and Beijing Lu is THE place to be in Guangzhou for shopping. You may want to schedule your visit accordingly in order to avoid the crowds. Mid-day times on weekdays have generally less traffic than later afternoons and weekends, which tend to be quite packed.
If you really need a book, but just don’t have the time to go out and get it, there is a solution. The Book Depository ( is a UK based book vendor that offers free shipping of books worldwide. Their database is enormous so you should be able to find just about any book you can imagine, and the books can be found at their normal store prices so this is one of the best resources you will find online. All you have to do is set up a brief account (less than five minutes) give them the shipping address and the books will be on their way.
