Lonely planet quality! Precise and insightful Very helpful in preparation for my trip to Beijing. I used quite a bit for reference. I highly recommend this.

Lonely planet quality! Precise and insightful. Never confine yourself to this guide when it comes to walking, unmatched street culture here, hutongs are always majestic. Historical context for the Forbidden City they give is somewhat repeating the info tables at the sight. I wish it was more stimulating. Cafes and bars recommended are 25% of the time disappointing. Very helpful in preparation for my trip to Beijing.

More famous than Mao's 'little red book' (and far more up-to-date), this essential guide helps you peer into Beijing's 'forbidden' heart, teeter on the cutting edge of its popular culture, or just hire a bike and join its daily cycle of life.

No where did it mention that the travel guide was printed in 1998. I may find the photos useful but everything else is outdated!

In contrast to another reader's review who thinks all travel books should have a positive slant, I enjoyed the frank criticisms - they make me put more trust in the author's recommendations. This has usual tourist information such as places to stay, eat, visit and shop, but also lots of unique info on things such as toilets, spitting and hygiene. I find this book much more useful than the "cookie cutter" travel guides such as Fodors.

I think the other raters have been vastly overcritical in their assessments of this book. True, the tone of the book is somewhat cynical, but I found it nonetheless to be invaluable in a solo two-week trip to China in June. Robert Storey is very knowledgeable on China, Beijing in particular, and I found most of what was written to be quite accurate. I had two problems with the book. First, the book (at least the version I received) was outdated. It's hard to blame the publisher though, given the rate of change in the city. Second, the maps in the book are pretty bad. Make sure you get a better map to supplement what's in the middle of the book. In fact, ignore the maps altogether.

The Beijing City guide, is one of poor quality that lacks a lot of information, I was just this past Christmas and New Year on a holiday trip and I was frankly disappointed. These guide included some really inaccurate information on restaurants, the maps are totally inaccurate and the information given is scarce. I really expected more seriousness in this guide -being a Lonely Planet one- that leaves me asking why is Lonely Planet guides so popular? With the maps on this guide instead of finding my way, I got lost! As for the information, it was OK but just imagine trying to find a restaurant that does not exist. Well I think there might be better guides out there.

I have used this book on a six day trip to Beijing over Xmas 1999. In my opinion the July 1998 edition of this book is too far out of date, and contains an unacceptable level of inaccuracies and inconsistencies. I would also endorse the previous reviewer's comments about the tone of the book, although I would say that a 'right on' sneering attitude seems to be written into too many Lonely Planet books and Rough Guides in general. This book is not worth buying in its July 1998 (3rd) edition. It needs to be completely rewritten and not reissued in a 4th edition.

Worst guidebook ever. Inaccurate and restaurants are miles away from the districts they are listed in. Will never use Lonely Planet again.
