Käyttäjän arvio  - surreality -

Excellent guidebook for this part of China, with the level of detail that is lacking from the overall China LP. It lives up to LP expectations concerning country information and has enough maps to cover even smaller towns. Price information should be treated as guidelines. Lue koko arvostelu
