Too General Not Specific for real traveling 31. Oktober 2014
Von MT - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I was disappointed in the amount of detail - not enough - that National Geo put in this book. For example, they rant about going to the old city wall in Xian and renting a bike on the wall. They neglect to tell you the hours (closes at 7pm) nor that one needs to put down about $50 for the bike. They also mention going to the Muslim Temple in the Muslim Quarter in Xian but no directions. Rick Steves does much better in his Europe books.
Huge disappointment! 13. April 2014

I expected so much more from the National Geographic brand - this was the first NG travel book I've purchased, and sadly, it will probably be my last. On the plus side, the "sidebar" articles on history, walking/biking tours, and cultural aspects of the country were usually interesting and valuable (but seemed somewhat random as to what they chose to highlight). The photos are also beautiful, though perhaps not worth the weight of the paper (see below).

As for the negatives: First of all, like the DK books it is printed on glossy paper, which makes it HEAVY for traveling with. Unlike the DK books, however, the information it contains is buried in chatty prose that sometimes may enlighten or enhance, but tends to bury the hard info; in addition, there are so few (and sort of random) maps, tables or other easy-to-access facts that it's usefulness as a quick reference is extremely limited. I carried this book with me on a 2-week tour of Beijing, Xi'an, Hangzhou, Suzhou, Shanghai, and Hong Kong; my traveling companions had DK and Lonely Planet, and I was constantly asking them if their books contained information mine lacked (or that I couldn't seem to find) such as the population of a city, which they usually did. Because we were on a planned tour, the hotel and restaurant information was unneeded, but also seemed extremely sparse.

Example: The entry for Suzhou is 4 pages long. The first 2 pages are entitled "Suzhou's Gardens" (content self-evident); the second 2 pages are "A Bike Ride Around Suzhou" and contain fleeting references to several of the non-garden attractions. Here's what the book said about places we went to: "[The Garden for Lingering In] is probably the least successful of Suzhou's gardens, with a contrived mystique and a rather tired feel to the gardens." "Farther east on Fengqiao Lu stands the Hanshan ("cold mountain") Temple. It's not worth making an expedition to the temple unless you want to explore what inspired the Tang dynasty poet Zhang Ji to write his famous poem "Night Mooring by Maple Bridge': [excerpt of poem]". While everyone is entitled to their opinions, and some amount of prioritizing is necessary when one travels, the negativity here was totally unhelpful - and it's ironic that the longest piece of the bike tour description included the poem about a place they didn't think it was worthwhile biking to. (For the record, the temple was beautiful and historic, and included an opportunity to ring the bell; just search for Hanshan Temple to see what they could have said about it that more truly reflects what I consider to be the values of National Geographic Society.)

Bottom line: If you're willing to carry a heavier, glossier book, choose a DK one; if you want one for real traveling, you should probably opt for Lonely Planet. Sorry NG - I'll still subscribe to your flagship magazine, but in my opinion, the "Traveler" series needs some work!
Fabulous Book! 3. März 2014

This is the only guidebook I could find that actually included a river tour of the Yangtze River. You simply can't go wrong with National Geographic! The pictures are just beautifu in this helpful book.

Awesome travel book loaded with colorful photos! 31. Dezember 2013
Von Sharon Harrison - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I loved how this book was loaded with colorful photos on every page. I bought this one and a DK book on China and loved them both. I was traveling with a small group so I used the DK book more and gave this book to my friend to use and it is still being used in China! I would definitely use National Geographic travel guides in the future!
