Bishan Bookstore in Bishan Village

Originally the shrine of Bishan village in Huangshan, it was later converted into a boutique bookstore which opened in 2014. It is said to be one of the most beautiful and well-kept bookstores in China. It is the first bookstore to be built in rural China in modern times. There’s a wide selection of books on the Hui, the local culture of Huangshan. Other kinds of books include art, philosophy, as well as books on rural reconstruction. There’s a cafe in the bookstore and visitors are welcome to spend time browsing and engaging in some cultural exchange. There are readings and discussions from time to time, so check the notice boards around the village. The bookstore is located a little off the tourist track, close-by to the Pig’s Inn and not far from Hongcun village.
