When you go on vacation, what are the things you must take? Of course, you have to have money, and it's also a good idea to have a guide book, especially if you're in a foreign country. So, what are the best travel guides in China? Come with me and find out.

If you are in China or have a plan to visit here before the end of October, then you better not miss the Shanghai World Expo. A guide book will help you have an easier and better journey at the park, which is bigger than five square kilometers. The most popular manuals are not only those containing practical travel information about the Expo, but also some by-the-way tours near Shanghai.

The global event has also been listed as one of the top travel destinations in 2010 by Lonely Planet, the world's largest independent travel publisher, which is making efforts to be localized in China. Starting from southwestern Yunnan, a new guide book series written by local Chinese travellers is released and can be found on bookshelves.

Matt Goldberg, CEO of Lonely Planet visited Beijing to enhance the cooperation with their partner in China, SDX Joint Publishing Company, one of the leading publishing houses in China.

Besides the popular travel guide presented by Lonely Planet, publishers from China and abroad have offered plenty of choices for help, especially for the pack-travellers. Here are some details.
