Beijing day by day

Beijing day by day: Building a better visit is my newest eguide, published just this week on Amazon Kindle.

It contains seven suggested itineraries on how to allocate your time in Beijing. Actually, you can fill more than seven days, since one itinerary suggests three day trips, each of which requires a full day to do, outside of Beijing. Plus another Beijing itinerary can be broken down into two days for visitors who have extra time and interest.

The itineraries are not in any special order of importance. I've tried to group them by geographic location, to cut down on travel time spent in Beijing traffic. I like to use public transportation in Beijing, because it's cheap and efficient, so I've listed subway stops and bus numbers to get to each site. I also say when it's more efficient to take taxis, but there's no reason people can't take taxis to all the sites. Open hours at the attractions also are included.

The book is targeted for independent travelers who need assistance planning their itineraries as well as travelers who are taking advantage of Beijing's new visa-free status of 72 hours as a stopover on international flights.

Beijing day by day retails for $2.99 in the Amazon Kindle store. A list of my other guidebooks and podcasts can be found on my Amazon author page. The list includes DIY Beijing, Parents Guide to Beijing, and Cuandixia: an ancient mountain village.
