"If you are a non-Chinese speaker, and cannot get around without pockets full of paper slips bearing the names of destinations in Chinese characters, then the Taxi Lingo Guide series are for you." --Time Magazine


Kimberley Fayet Whiley has been working and living in Hong Kong since 1989. She came up with the book's concept when traveling in Beijing in 2001 and found everyone living there had name cards and pieces of paper in their wallets to get around the city. She knew a simple book could do the trick and published the Hong Kong and Macau Taxi Guide a year later. In 2008 she rebranded the books under the Taxi Lingo brand. In 2012, Kimberley partnered with Discovery Publisher to publish an iPhone App of the Taxi Lingo Guides.
