Bookworm (Lǎoshùchóng) Review

South of the U.S. Consulate you'll find the Bookworm, a relaxed haven for thousands of the city's expats to drink, eat, and browse through over a 1,000 books. It's the only place tin the city to buy English language books, travel guides, and magazines. An annual literary festival (usually held in March) draws famous authors like humorist David Sedaris. The Worm is also a great place to enjoy a pint of Guinness or decent imported wine.
