China is growing in importance touristically as well as economically. The size of the country makes it difficult to portray this vast geographic entity favourably on a sheet of paper, even double-sided. The answer until now has been to divide China into segments. Now, for the first time, China is available in an enhanced scale in a book format that is compact in size, light-weight, and detailed enough for backpackers, businessmen, and those on a tour.
China itself is portrayed on 76 pages of detailed maps. Two pages of Lhasa maps follow, then 11 pages devoted to Beijing, 7 to Shanghai, 8 to Hong Kong, and 8 more to Guangzhou (Canton). This is a milestone publication, the first-ever book map of China by a non-local firm, in English/Romanized print – easy to understand, easy to use.
