    Pretty good overall

    Book contains a lot of useful information, but as is typical of the Lonely Planet books, devotes too much space detailing "crunchy granola" (i.e. vegan, vegetarian, etc) and western restaurants. Who would travel to the far side of the world to a country with perhaps the longest and most diverse culinary history and tradition on earth only to eat a hamburger, pizza, or other crappy western food? The rest of the book is fine, but the restaurant section needs work. Rely on the locals for the good places to eat.

    This book rocks as much as Beijing itself!!!

    Lonely Planet always writes the best travel guides to China. I never go to China without my lonely planet. I know my way around and all that, but Lonely Planet just makes everything easier and run more smoothly. It allows you to explore Beijing more independently and with greater confidence. I recommend this book over a tour guide any day!

    Lonely Planet Beijing Book

    I am in the process of planning my trip to Beijing and got this book. It breaks down the city by neighborhoods and activities (ex. food and entertainment) rather than by things that you must see. The main attractions were not highlighted and were thrown in within the different neighborhoods. To figure out where things were located took a lot more time than necessary.
