Looking for a Hotel in China, Russia, Egypt? Why Booking.com Is Your Best Bet

One obstacle for the self-directed traveler to nations without our Latin alphabet is the language barrier. When you arrive at the airport, how can you tell your taxi driver which hotel you want to go to?

According to this blog post, Booking.com “…has thoughtful touches such as options for local language printer-friendly confirmations with GPS coordinates listed.”

So, if you print out your booking on Booking.com, you will be able to print it in the native language of the nation it is in. And, you can put the GPS coordinates into your mobile phone’s mapping software and make certain your taxi driver is headed in the proper direction.
