Best China Travel Guide Books (On-line Editions)

Postby long_way » Mon Sep 28, 2009 8:35 am

As you probably know Lonely Planet China, Rough Guide to China and Frommer's China are three major travel guide books. All three of them are really good and also very useful. The only thing is they are not that cheap either. However they have been very generous and re-printed large portions of their guide books and put them on-line so everyone can find a lot of useful information (and fairly reliable, too) on their web sites.

Here are the links to their web sites where you can find useful information on budget travel to China:

*** Rough Guide to China: ... 84784_0006

They also have one free pdf file from the Sichuan chapter of the book: ... eBoxes.pdf
