Where to visit with a family

The classics, Beijing, Shanghai and Xi'an, are classics for good reasons. However, venture into these other areas to really experience a side of China most tourists don't see. Here's just two:

Kung Fu Panda & Chinese Countryside Guilin's paddy fields, Karst Mountains, River's, Lakes, Bamboo Raft, Cormorant Fishermen, Cycling and scenery from Chinese paintings.

Avatar & The Giant Pandas Jiangjiajie near Chengdu is known for the scenery of Avatar, this mountain wild spot is breathtaking. Why not combine this into a trip to Chengdu and visit the panda protection centre.
