Beijing Taxi Cards

What with the Olympics and everything, Beijing is also currently host to tourists from all over the world trying to navigate their way around a city whose street signs are sometimes nowhere to be found. With this in mind comes Beijing Taxi Cards, a booklet of 55 cards along with a map of the city that not only fit in the palm of your hand but can also be clipped onto your belt loop or key ring. The cards display the most popular attractions in Beijing along with directions written in Chinese and a phonetic pronunciation of the place in English. When hailing a taxi visitors can either attempt to pronounce the location or simply hand over the card. In a city with 70,000 taxi drivers where few speak English, this little booklet is a step in the right (or atleast a little less confusing) direction.
