For those of you planning on being at Beijing’s international coming out party this summer (aka, the Olympics), having these guys in your pocket should go a long way in helping you reach the festivities. Featuring the most popular attractions, venues and destinations in Beijing, each card clearly displays the location name, along with detailed directions in Chinese, and a phonetic pronunciation of the place name in English.
Let’s face it, Chinese isn’t really the kind of language you just ‘wing’, and since the majority of the capital cities 70,000 cabby’s have no grasp of English, keeping this simple set of palm sized cards handy should keep you drinking more and thinking less; and that translates to something we can all understand.
Cost: $10 @ Beijing Taxi Cards
