Editorial Reviews


...Best guidebook ... -- Mail on Sunday [London]

These handsome, well-edited books from a Hong Kong-based publisher cover places few other guidebooks go.... The writers are particularly well-chosen....Odyssey fans tend to be adventurous travelers with a literary bent. If you're lucky enough to find an Odyssey Guide to where you're going, grab it. -- National Geographic Traveler, February 2000

Format: Paperback
The information contained within this text is very accurate. For someone who has traveled to Xi'an and studied there, this is the first travel book, solely devoted to Xi'an, that I have found to offer a "complete" guide. Highly recommended.
