We took a tour to go there with China Highlights, booked in Internet and you pay to the guide or Pay pal . Now is working very well in China Apple maps in English , you write in English found the place and press directions, it is pretty accurate . Even tells you the tickets price , how to go to the next stop , fastest route , etc. Having I phone is kind of savior in China to move around .
