The greatest and beautiful things happen when you don’t expect them to happen. That was the case of the “meeting” with Clessence Bookstore, an amazing and relaxing place in Nanbin Lu, in Nan’an District, Chongqing City. It was just twenty minutes before the closing, and I could only take some pictures, but it was enought to enjoy the great atmosphere of the place. The wooden shelves and floor, friendly members of the personnel and a nice cafè sorrounded by books and with a nice view of Yuzhong, help you feel at home, concentrating on the topic and theme of the book you want to read. The bookstore is located in Dongyuan 1891, a residential and commercial district right next to the Changjiang river, and is more than worthy of a visit.
