$ 10.00 $ 21.95

Its simple: Frommer's is the name you can trust for complete, easy-to-use, and up-to-date travel information. We're thoroughly committed to offering all the practical details in a fun, user-friendly format, and to helping readers discover the world in a whole new way. Our candid, authoritative hotel and restaurant reviews are the best in the business; they're incredibly detailed, and they include carefully chosen selections for every taste and budget. And we offer a wealth of sightseeing, sports, strolls, and special moments; from the major tourist highlights for a first-time visitor to off-the-beaten-track discoveries that will impress even the most seasoned traveler. And it's all accompanied by our detailed, accurate two-color maps that show you the way.

Most guidebooks read like textbooks or promotional brochures; but not Frommer's. We know that readers turn to us when they're planning a vacation, so even though we take the details seriously, we produce guides with a sense of fun and discovery. And we believe that you can tell a book by its cove; rso we don't settle for anything less than spectacular photography. No wonder we're turning heads. And no wonder readers have rediscovered that Frommer's is the key to an unforgettable vacation.

In a departure from the standard, comprehensive travel guide format, Frommer's China makes it easy to plan a trip without plowing through an overwhelming 1,000 pages of data. We've chosen the very top travel experiences; and after an evocative description of each one, we tell readers how to have the same experiences themselves. Here is the very best of China: the Great Wall; fabled cities, both ancient and modern; sea and river cruises; the Silk Road; and much, much more. Each chapter describes the experience and site, with fascinating cultural information, and includes travel directions, tour information, and where to stay and dine. The guide comes complete with:

  • Ideas for traveling on your own
  • Tips on how to choose and book the organized tour that's right for you
  • Vital background information on the culture, cuisine, customs, and language of this vast and diverse country
  • Logistical information on getting around and communicating.
