I went to pop-in Kinokuniya book store for a peak and was in there for almost two hours. I said I would just look and not get anything, but I did. I'm not made of stone.

I visited Kinokuniya several times during my stay in Sydney in July 2017. It is a fantastic bookstore - the largest in Australia. I walked around the travel, history, business and other sections.

Central Business District
The Sydney Central Business District is abuzz with
energy. Power brokers run to and from high rise
buildings and after-work drink places, high-end
shoppers tour venues like the QVB, and fine diners
frequent the many celebrity chef restaurants. For a
dose of culture, walk to the NSW Art Gallery, or visit
the Sydney Museum. To escape the hustle and bustle,
reconnect with nature at the Sydney Botanical Gardens
