Google Maps City Guides for China

新年快乐 Happy Chinese New Year!

English Google Maps City Guides for Chinese Cities:

Example: Beijing

If you're English speaking and living in or visiting China PseudoLocal is for you! It's a wiki-map-mashup that draws from content created by expatriates and English speaking Chinese people who share their tips about how to get around Chinese cities. Start by selecting from the list of cities then browse simple maps that plot and cover: Transportation, Accommodation, Restaurants, Bars and Nightlife, Embassies, Schools, Hospitals, Public Facilities, Stores and Shopping, Office Buildings, Tourist Attractions and Entertainment. The Beijing City Guide is a great example of how all information for a particular city is displayed on maps throughout the wiki pages. I have a friend that lives in Beijing and she was very impressed when I showed this to her and couldn't wait to start using it when she returned back to China!
