gatorback has the correct answer here. Another option is to get hold of an international SIM card, which will work in numerous countries. You can get these online (sellers such as Telestial, GO-SIM, WorldSIM and others) and they'll deliver the SIM to you before you travel.

The general-approach to solving this problem is identifying each country's carrier and see which carriers they have in common. In this Case T-Mobile and Vodaphone.

You can rent a so called "egg" from various website like www.taobao.com and it provides wifi hotspot, then you can use your cell phone connect to it and use apps like google map. I rented for less than $10 per day, and the data is unlimited. Speed is decent too.
