Taxi Guides to HK & China

Pocketbooks help you get around in a taxi.


For those who want a quick and easy guidebook to get around the popular China cities (and shame on you if you still need one for Hong Kong) have a look at these Taxi Guide travel books.

The pocket sized guides are invaluable to travelers who face linguistic frustrations getting around large, bustling cities by offering complete translations for all useful addresses in  English and the indigenous language.

Costing HK$60 (US$ 8) each, the hard backed books include useful items such as arrow stickers to indicate directions, an inside pocket for hotel room key or name cards, helpful phrases, and all important telephone numbers for emergencies, hiring taxis and other useful organizations. There are also quick shopping tips, tunnel /bridge fee information, simple maps and guides, and a handy pronunciation guide.

The Taxi Guides, available singly or in boxed sets of three, have also become very popular as corporate giveaways as well as presents to friends and family. Responding to this, Tamco has produced special wooden gift box sets containing all the five current titles, which can be customized to make a perfect corporate premium gift.

Check out their site where it’s the only place to order them currently.
