Chineasy (R) Travel presents over 100 of the most used and useful Chinese characters, phrases and sentences for travellers, wherever they may find themselves in the Chinese-speaking world. Ingeniously illustrated throughout by Noma Bar, this guide breaks down the essentials in six themed chapters, from reading directions and using public transport, to ordering food off a menu. A chapter on culture explores the country's history, philosophy and religion, including annual festivals. Whether you are planning a business trip, holiday or longer adventure, the Chineasy method provides a great starting point to broadening your knowledge of the language and culture.

Including a list of useful phrases and instructions on Chinese pronunciation and basic grammar, this handy pocket guide brings the stories and myths behind the characters to life, providing a welcome primer for breaking down the barriers of language.
