Produktbeschreibungen

Amazon.de

From Antarctica to Zimbabwe, if you are going there chances are Lonely Planet has been there first. With a pithy and matter-of-fact writing style, these guides are guaranteed to calm the nerves of first-time world travellers, while still listing off-the-beaten-path finds sure to thrill even the most jaded globe-trotters. Lonely Planet has been perfecting its guidebooks for nearly 30 years and as a result, has experience and know-how similar to an older sibling's "been there" advice. The original backpacker's bible, the LP series has recently widened its reach. While still giving insights for the low-budget traveller, the books now list a wide range of accommodations and itineraries for those with less time than money.

Just as the authors describe China as "massive and endlessly fascinating", so is the material they have collected in this guide--an important travellers' opus. The 200-plus maps feature keys in English and Chinese script, there are essential details on transport options, a 12-page Chinese arts section, and a useful feature on the Chinese language. --Kathryn True

Format: Taschenbuch
Well, can you capture the plurality of China in less than a 1000 pages? Probably not, but somehow the lonely planet team managed to provide a fairly good guidebook for people who try to tackle travelling on their own. Is it possible? Yes (even if you forget to buy a phrasebook as we did!) A real plus is that the planet writes every location name in Chinese letters (right behind the English one) which is of tremendous help if you need to ask somebody the way. Learning a little Mandarin doesn't hurt either and although it's a very tricky language - you'll be able to master a few phrases and words, and your efforts will be worth it, trust me! People will appreciate it tremendously and you'll get a lot of laughs as well..

We tried some less travelled roads, and admittedly, although it get's a little tiring being stared at at times, China left quite an impression on us. Be prepared by a clash of rich and poor! The planet proved a reliable and great guide to us, although it sometimes lacked precision and detail.

3 von 4 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Steffen.R. am 22. Juni 2009
Format: Taschenbuch
Im großen und ganzen ein wirklich guter Reiseführer der mir für 4 Wochen eine zuverlässige Hilfe war.
(Reiseroute: Hongkong, Guangzhou, Guilin, Kunming, Dali, Lijiang, Chengdu, Xi'an und Peking)
Ich konnte keine wirklichen Schwächen feststellen.
Reiseinfos zu Sehenswürdigkeiten und deren Wegbeschreibung waren gut dokumentiert. Die Preisangaben für Unterkünfte sind nicht mehr auf den aktuellen Stand. Da es sich aber um eine 97er Auflage handeln, sollte man diese Tatsache nicht überbewerten.

Durch Mitreisende hatte ich den direkten Vergleich zum Loose Reiseführer der in einigen Bereichen doch recht lückenhaft war.
Also meine Empfehlung: Lonely Planet kaufen!

Format: Taschenbuch
I have used Lonely Planet guides since 1996 to help me travel to nearly 30 countries and until now, I found them the best resource available for getting off the beaten tourist-track. Unfortunately, this edition of LP China disappoints. I like the logistical information (I give an extra star for that), but I am really dismayed at the emphasis given to popular spots, "backpacker meccas", places "beloved by backpackers", "a good place to 'kick back'", etc. It even goes as far as to show contempt for people looking for the "'real China'". I think I will look for another title, and if there is not a better one out there then I will write my own. As LP is alienating their core market here, maybe a new opportunity opens for new writers...

5 von 15 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von malte am 17. Februar 2008
Format: Taschenbuch
I lived three months in Fuzhou, Fujian Province.
The informations in the planet were good for nothing.
The highly recommended "must try" restaurant is a total rip off,
the Shangri-La Hotel is not listed (opened 2005),
the Fuzhou Hotel is indicated wrong on the map,
the Fuzhou English Corner, were locals meet daily
to chat and improve their English is not listed and so on.....
It seems as if the authors have rushed through Fuzhou some years ago
and did not mind updating the information.
As they say in the beginning of the chapter: Fuzhou is not worth a visit.
Excuse me??? What is that?
To ignore a harbour city of 6 million inhabitants in a guide book is simply a shame.
My suggestion: Try the internet instead.
ctrip or elong for flights and hotels, for other needed information,
ask the staff of your hotel or other locals or expats.

Good for package tourists; not for exploration 5. März 2004
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
They say that everything you hear about China is true somewhere. Everything you read in LP China may also be true somewhere but unfortunately not always where you are. Originally published in August 2002 this book is well past its prime. It is still superior to the Rough Guide but could use a serious update. Speaking of which the overleaf promises guidebook upgrades on the Internet but they discontinued this in favour of user discussion.
Pricing - the cost of tea in China, you say? Like most things in China, prices are in constant flux and I question the value of including them. They are more misleading than helpful. Tourist attractions will generally be higher than what the book says but other prices will be close.
Locations - I live in the city of Wuhan and in the last two year it has undergone tremendous changes. There is simply no way for a printed book to keep up with them. For example, in the last six months the bus routes in WuChang have changed four times.
If you are going to travel around China be flexible! Expect that nothing in the guidebook will be where you expected. Expect to bargain for everything, hotel prices included. Remember that any guide book is only a starting place. As I have travelled around southern China I have used this book as a starting point and then asked the locals what they would do. Most have never been to the "tourist sites" but can show you a great street restaurant just around the corner.
This book is great for those thinking of going to China but who will never make the trip, or for those who are going on a package trip to fourteen cities in eight days. For those who want to explore China on their own I would advise caution.

A good review of LP. 23. November 2004
Von J. Shaw - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I arrived home from China 2 weeks ago after being there for 2 weeks. I visited the most amazing places, and yes, I took the most recent LP with me. Alot of reviewers here have stated the lack of important information in this publication, however, I found this book to be valuble on my journey. China is a tough place to travel, English isnt spoken in most places and the general public (outside of those who deal with tourists often) are not a particularly friendly bunch to westerners. In reading this guide, you must take into account that it ISNT a tour guide, it is simply a reference to sites and popular places. I found the Chinese text to be very helpful when using taxi's. China is an ever changing place, and if you have ever been there, you will know how vast it really is. A mecca of laneways and confusing streets. LP was an invaluble read for me and I would recommend this guide for those who are imbarking on thier first trip to this wonderful place.

As a well travelled person, I have used LP many times in different places, I think some people forget to step outside the book and just find things on their own will...

Use With Caution! 8. November 2007
Von A Reader - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
It is confusing that many of the reviews here are for the National Geographic Traveler China book, by the same author as the Lonely Planet book. The National Geographic book has lots of pictures and is a good "idea" book. The Lonely Planet is geared to the independent traveler, with much more specific information about how to get around. This review is for the Lonely Planet.

My husband and I have successfully used Lonely Planet books on many other trips, but we were disappointed in the China book. Obviously China is a huge country, and it is changing very quickly, so we were not surprised to find that many places no longer exist and that some of the information was out-of-date. But we WERE surprised at the amount of blatantly wrong information. For example, the section on Jade Dragon Snow Mountain near Lijiang was so mixed-up that we ended up spending the day at the wrong hiking area.

In most countries it would be fairly easy to double-check the accuracy of a description by asking a hotel concierge or taxi driver. In China, though, we often had problems communicating, so we relied much more heavily on our guidebooks.

The book is huge, but it didn't need to be quite so big. Many of the descriptions are excessively wordy, and sometimes it seemed like the author was more interested in writing a clever review than clearly giving the facts.

The best thing about the book is that names of places and most streets are written in Chinese. It was incredibly helpful to be able to point to the place we wanted to go. We found that our accents and pronunciations were so bad when we tried to read pinyin that most people didn't even realize we were trying to speak Chinese to them.

We looked through other guidebooks at some of our guest houses, and unfortunately none seemed to be much better.

An arrogant nightmare 7. Dezember 2002
Von Anna - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I agree with the previous reviewer when he says a) the arrogant tone of previous editions continues here, b) if you have an old edition, there is no need to upgrade, as there isn't much new here as they really don't update much. That second point is particularly egrigious, as there has been so much change in China of late. The most classic example is in the South West of China (there is a separate guidebook for this, which is better, but not much). The guidebook refers to Chengdu as "backpacker's paradise", but I'm here to tell you there are a lot of sorely disappointed backpackers who've wound up in Chengdu on this advice and left pretty quickly. Or tried to leave quickly but couldn't, as while the book tells you that there are 85 trains to different places, it shows there are four different train stations on the map in completely different places in town, wbut never tells you which is the main one or which one you might need to get to to get the heck out of dodge. Other descriptions include bus lines as "luxiourious rulers of the road" when there's not even a bus line in the town. This continues everywhere throughout the book. The Beijing section is *particularly* bad when it comes to listing cheap accomodation anywhere near Tianamen Square. According to the book, it is woefully lacking. But if they'd ever listed YHA hostels (they don't, who knows why), there's more cheap, clean, English speaking beds within walking distance of T-Square than you can imagine. Something like 2000 of them. When I met up with a friend in Beijing and we prepared to get on the Trans-Mongolian out of the country, we didn't even leave this book behind, we actually burned it and did a little dance that we wouldn't have to use it again.

Consider National Geographic Traveler 24. August 2004
Von Traveler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I received a copy of the Lonely Planet China as a gift. I am neutral about the book. Good general information. However...China is so dynamic and changing...it doesn't ring true in many cases.

I would suggest the National Geographic Traveler China guide. It is very well balanced...gives excellent background...so the traveler can interpret and experience the wonders of China through high quality text, pictures and maps.

I would still suggest the Lonely Planet guide for those that have not travelled much...and a starting point. But those that have past international travel experience will find it much too basic and generic. Nat'l Geographic will provide a comprehensive pretrip planning guide so you can best tailor your trip and will enhance your experience while visting.

Another factoid side note. The author of National Geographic Traveler China (Damian Harper) co-authored several guides of China, Beijing, and Hong Kong for Lonely Planet. To validate...click the D. Harper's name near the book title above. Same author...but with the quality of National Geographic.
