Imagine you’re traveling in China and you need to ask for directions in Chinese… what’s the word for where in Chinese? And how do you get there?
 
This free online lesson will teach you some essential travel Chinese so you can catch a train, find your hotel and navigate your way around the city.

Asking where in Chinese

One of the first questions you might want to ask when arriving in an unfamiliar city could be…

Wǒ zài nǎr kěyǐ zhǎodào lǚyóu xìnxī zhōngxīn?

Where can I find the tourist information center?

Some smaller towns may not have tourist information centers. You might have to rely on asking the locals. Here are some useful questions you might need:

Where can I find…?
