Traveling to Beijing?
Beijing Taxi Cards are the ideal way to communicate where you want to go in Beijing. Whether on a long vacation, a short trip or on business, the city’s abundant taxi cabs are the most convenient way to get around.
Why do you need this?
Because taxi drivers and Beijing citizens in general do not speak English and cannot understand western characters – they need to be given directions in Chinese.
Beijing taxi cards provide place names and localized directions clearly written in Chinese – an absolute necessity for getting around.
Included is a compilation of the best and most popular destinations in Beijing with a few local secrets thrown in.
How to use?
Easily navigate the main category menu of places:
Touring spots, Restaurants / Bars & Nightclubs, Shopping locations, venues around the Olympic Village. Included in the main menu are information lists on: Hotels, Embassies and useful Words.
Simply select the location you’d like to visit and flash the information to your driver.
All main cards come with photographs and audio as well as phonetic pronunciation of place names for fun practice of your Mandarin. On the ‘flip’ side of the main cards is a short description of the place and nearest subway if applicable.
Leave your guidebook back at the hotel and bring your iPhone or iPod Touch instead.
