Abstract Just as being able to ask for directions is a key skill when visiting China, so is the know-how needed to pay the right fare and obtain the right ticket when using the country's public transportation. This program demonstrates how to use Chinese words and phrases to get around by taxi, bus, and train. Cultural topics include: a trip to the Great Wall, with rich historical background on its construction and military significance; a journey to the mountain resort city of Chengde, with its splendid palaces and temples; and other tourist activities that highlight the beauty and adventure of traveling in the world's most populous country.
