The Sanlian Taofen Bookstores

The Sanlian Taofen bookstore in Beijing is one of the most famous in the city. In 2014, they conducted a grand experiment by opening one of their bookstores for 24 hours. That experiment proved to be a great success. In April of 2015, they announced that the experiment would be permanent. Now, Beijing’s ye shen xian (“Night gods”, or the Mandarin equivalent of “night owls”) have a place to kick back and read all night!

A second Taofen bookstore near the Tsinghua University campus is expected to convert to a 24 hour format sometime in 2015.
