TaKao Books

Books in Kaohsiung

A delightful bookshop strong in the arts and humanities. Most books are in Mandarin, but there are photography titles in English as well as CDs of music and poetry by Taiwan singer-songwriters. Literary and music events are held in the cafe upstairs. The site used to be a guava plantation and this building was one of the earliest on Zhongzheng Rd.

The bookstore is about 20m away from the KMRT exit.
