This is packed with information you will likely need in China. While it does not have the variety of pictures other guide books have, it is full of the detail one needs in a country as diverse as China. I especially like the "Foder's Choice" selections which have helped us determine what to see and where to stay. A good example is where to see the Great Wall. Without Foder's Choice, it would seem all Great Wall sites are the same when, in fact, some are better for the tourist than others.

We bought this guide for a family vacation in Hong Kong, Beijing and Shanghai. The information is good and pretty thorough - BUT - if you actually want to find anything in the book, or on a map, or find a map, or find a restaurant or location referred to on one of the maps, then Good Luck. Because the layout of this book is absolutely dreadful. I'll give you an example: You're in Hong Kong and have heard the museum of teaware is good, so you want to see where it is on the map. Except you can't find the map because it's hidden amongst all the other HK information on a random page. You find the map and see that it's #8 on the key - so you try to find it in the "attractions" section - except it doesn't come after 7 and before 9, because attractions 7 and 9 are in a different area of the city and therefore on a different page in the book - not that the map even showed the city areas in the first place. So you eventually find the review, decide to go and decide to figure a restaurant to eat at while you're there. So - back to the map - except that's the attractions map, not the restaurant map - that's another map on another page, with another key, with more not-in-sequence numbers. For Kowloon it's worse. There are 2 different maps, to different scales, both with a random assortment of markets, sights and museums. It's potluck as to whether you'll ever actually find what you're looking for.
I don't care how good the information is - if you can't find it, it's useless. For Beijing and Shanghai the Moon guide was much better - and had all the maps (by area), everything on them, color coded at the back of the book. Now that's sensible.
