    Default Photography Books .. in chinese.

    Hi all

    Am looking for Father's Day gift. Any idea where to source for books on photography in chinese? Dad can read english but having it in chinese will be much preferred.

    *Not looking for those 'beginner' books ... any other suggestion welcome. Thanks!

    Bras Basah Complex, 1st floor, somewhere in the center courtyard, can't remember the name. The store also sells sports equipment and CDs/VCDs/DVDs. Got some beginner's books, intermediate stuff too. And many magazines from Taiwan and Hongkong.

    Popular @ Bras Basah, the 4th floor section, near the stairs to the 5th floor, got some beginners to advance topics.

    The Kikokuniya @ Takashimaya also have some chinese photography books as well, but not many. At the chinese books/magazine section.

    I see that Oriental Photo (Sim Lim Sq) may have some Chinese mags. You may like to call them first.
