Rough Guides are written by expert authors who are passionate about both writing and travel. The author has a clear distaste for the Southwest, referring to the desolation and hum-drum nature of many of the Southwest outpost towns. They have detailed knowledge of the areas they write about-having either traveled extensively or lived there-and their expertise shines through on every page.

Rough Guides is a leading publisher of travel and reference information, respected for their accurate, up-to-date content and informed contemporary writing.

Rough Guides Ltd is a British travel guidebook and reference publisher, which has been owned by APA Publications since November 2017. In addition to publishing guidebooks, the company also provides a tailor-made trips service based on customers’ individual criteria.

Inside its modern cities you'll find lively restaurants and teahouses, busy streets and trendy bars. Further afield are historic old towns and trade roads, once trodden by merchants, Communist guerillas, third-century warriors, and European plant-hunters. Limestone peaks, caves, waterfalls, and the world's largest sinkholes compete for your attention alongside rare monkeys, birds, and — of course — pandas. Half of China's fifty-six recognized ethnic groups live in the region, too, including Tibetans, Miao, Dong, Yi, Bai, and Dai, enlivening the countryside with wooden villages, monastery towns, extreme rice terracing, exquisite textiles, and exuberant festivals. Visitors can join pilgrims circuiting lamaseries, get a close-up view of monumental Buddhist sculptures, and climb holy mountains.

While dated now, this guidebook was by far the best for information about points of interest in Southwest China. With its detail and focus on one region, it includes listings for many, many more places to visit than guidebooks that cover all of China, and I found it invaluable during my month in the region. Good tourist information is not easily available locally in China, so it's especially useful to have a great guidebook. I didn't use the book much for hotels and restaurants, as I relied more on the internet to choose hotels, and good restaurants were easy to find by just stumbling around, at least in the cities. But the information about places to visit was invaluable. The information on how to get around is getting out of date but was also still useful most of the time.

While this book is comprehensive in where it covers, there is little information on much in depth. I am planning on visiting Chengdu in a few months and this was the only book I could find with any mention of anything related to Chengdu. There are 15 pages specifically on Chengdu and only a few places to eat and places to stay recommended with little information about each. There is also little information about taking day or weekend trips from Chengdu, specifically what is reasonable with varying amounts of time, and what is most worthy. It looks like the coverage of the Yunnan province gets the best treatment in this book, but there is little information that I could quickly find about traveling between different places worthy of short visits on a budget or not.

Because this is the only book like it, I would recommend it, but I think it would be good to get another more general China travel book too, in order to fill in some blanks.

Reasonable for bigger cities. Very cursory information for smaller towns, but at least there is some mention unlike the nation-wide guides. Logistical information pretty out dated, but the history/cultural content is good.

Rough Guides are getting better than Lonely Planet. This one worked, and Rough Guides actually try to save you money. Lonely Planet has gone too upscale for me.

good information--not as complete as I would like but useful

A bit old, but lots of information. I used it extensively.

This Rough guide was helpful organizing my trip to Yunnan even though the situation in China changes so fast that some of the information there is not relevant anymore or very incomplete. The list of hotels is quite limited and there should be more information on English speaking services ( or in any other Western language)
