Venteran China travellers and Chinese-language educators Larry and Qin Herzberg offer an insider's perspective on what to expect when you visit the Middle Kingdom - once isolated, but now one of the world's top travel destinations for businesspeople, students and tourists. They show how China, despite its rapid modernisation, is still a land of startling contrasts that can catch even experienced travellers off guard.
This third edition includes a completely new chapter on high-speed and regular trains plus updates on all the essentials of travel, including shopping and dining, business and social etiquette, medical emergencies, hotels, and how to be safe and street savvy. There are also sightseeing, film and book recommendations.
Whether you are new to China travel or have been there before, the China Surival Guide is a great addition to any traveller's briefcase - or backpack.
