ChinaeBook - 2008
Annotation This guide focuses on areas that are most rewarding for tourists (all of China could not be seen in several lifetimes): Beijing & surroundings, Shanghai and Hong Kong, the Terracotta Warriors near Xi'an, the Yangzi River's Three Gorges, the majestic rural scenery around Guilin, the Pearl River Delta, and the island of Macau. For each region, activities range from Dragon Boat racing, Chinese cooking and language lessons, to golfing, hiking and bike rides. All the big sights are described, but so are little dumpling houses, lively markets, walks through narrow old streets. You discover the best places to study tai chi and where to stay if you're here for the 2008 Olympics. Names for all places, attractions, hotels, restaurants are shown in Chinese characters as well as in English, so the reader can communicate well with taxi drivers and get directions. The author has been an adventure tour leader in China for 10 years and has written for the Rough Guide to China, as well as various travel magazines.
