Beijing is a rapidly changing city and I would recommend purchasing the current version of this book instead of an older version. That said, I used this book while studying in Beijing for a month in 2007. I took several guidebooks along, but by far this was the guidebook that my group used more than any other. The only trouble I had with it was that one restaurant it recommended had been razed a few weeks prior to my looking for it. However, as other reviews have commented, such is the nature of Beijing. Other than that small inconvenience, I found the book to be invaluable. In addition to all of the main tourist attractions, the book listed several less-well-known places to visit. My group visited several places recommended by the book and we thoroughly enjoyed each place. The book was easy to use and larger than other guidebooks but we just tossed it in a backpack and always had it when we needed it. I highly recommend this book for someone taking a longer trip to Beijing.

I used this book while in Beijing for two months and found the information very useful. Written by people who live, work and play in Beijing it includes a number of interesting asides on customs and culture as well as the usual information on places to eat, stay, shop, party etc.

My only complaint is that it's way long on shopping (not my favorite activety) and a little short on cultural material, ie, museums, temples, historical sites, etc. As a consequence I found myself running out of places to visit after a couple of weeks, but for the short stay this wouldn't be a problem. All in all a better reference book for Beijing than any others I've seen.

I hefted this voluminous tome all the way to Beijing and back, and it was worth every pound! In addition to being a facinating read, we used it for tracking down restaurants and out of the way sights, but mostly, MOSTLY for shopping! This book saved us a ton of money and time; the article on bargaining really brought home some great techniques on buying everything we needed/wanted. It made this traveler feel like a real Beijinger! (PS..if you can read some Chinese, buy the current Beijing Busroute atlas at any bookstore: you'll save a ton of money getting round and it also pinpoints exactly the locations of sights/stores/better known restaurants/Post Offices/banks/hotels and many of the things mentioned in the Insider's Beijing book and how to get there on public transport--it was the best 15 yuan/2$ I spent!)

Wonderful guide book especially made for the expatriate in mind. I lived in Beijing and found this guide book very helpful. Actually calling it a 'guide book' kind of cheapens it -- this is the type of book needed in more cities around the world for those that live in a particular place and for those that wish to experience life 'like a local'

I would have liked more maps, yet thinking about the quick growth and change of the city, maps change just as much as the city does, so it is better to pick one up elsewhere.

This is a good book at a "no joke" price, although (of course) it is cheaper in Beijing. Yet don't take a chance and wait for Beijing - this is a must buy and a big regret if you don't get it.

If you're just hitting Beijing for three-four days, stick with Frommer's, Lonely Planet et al. But if you're planning a longer trip, and most especially if you're a truly curious traveler interested in not only the what but also the WHY of a historical but living and fast-transforming city, the Insider's Guide to Beijing will be your trusted companion. It's a great guidebook while you're in the city but also makes fascinating pre- and post-trip reading, with great nuggets of info on how the taxi cab license plate system works, interviews with local people like chefs at famous restaurants, and humourous but also useful info on topics like "breathing in Beijing" and how to get from place to place using the fastest mode of transportation.

The fact that the Insider's Guide is really written by insiders - long-time expat residents who clearly know and love the city but also understand all its quirks, means you also get the benefit of informed reviews of everything from bars to shopping areas that go far beyond a thumbs-up/thumbs-down rating to really give you a sense of whether YOU as an individual would enjoy it. Since the writers are long-timers, you get a sense throughout the book of the fast changes Beijing is going through as well.

Other than the fact that it could use a few more maps (easily available at your hotel or a shop, however) it's a terrific, jam-packed, informative and easy to use guide to one of the world's great cities.

The "Insider's Guide to Bejing" is a needed book, going to Bejing for the first time. Of course if you have friends there, that is one thing. But soon you will wish to see the city and surroundings. The book gives many ideas and how to approach certain places. There are do's and don't in every society and this book show's easy places to see and places with more difficulty, how to approach them... Or makes you think..?? "Should I approach this" :-) Yes, it's all fun to learn from these people and see a great culture.
