  • "With pictures, mini-histories of a good number of cities, villages and towns, and fun facts, these books are an informative read for anyone interested in China, regardless of how extensively you plan to travel. And with detailed travel instructions by bus, train, taxi or heiche from the nearest large city to place names and key phrases in Mandarin written in both pinyin and characters, they serve as useful, practical tools for getting around. We’re excited about checking out some of the towns and villages we read about this fall."
