Publisher Comments:

Insight Guide China is a handsome 480-page guidebook offering in-depth coverage of this enigmatic destination.

Following on from the inspirational Best Of China section, the first 100 pages comprise a series of essays describing China’s long history and its fascinating culture – from the booming economy to the subtleties of the many regional cuisines and the venerable artistic heritage. New for the 12th edition are features on Environmental Issues, Red Tourism and the amazing development of infrastructure around the country.

The Places chapters contain descriptive region-by-region accounts of all the sights worth seeing across the length and breadth of the country. Chinese characters are included for towns, cities, significant sights and restaurants, and also appear on the 36 maps. There are also reviews of over 300 recommended restaurants across the country, from Beijing and Shanghai to Kunming and Kashgar.

At the back of the book, the Travel Tips section contains all the practical information you'll need to make the most of your trip, including over 250 recommended hotels.
