1. Beijing


In Beijing, there are abundant fun activities and attractions to keep the little ones entertained. They will marvel at the sight of numerous historical monuments, and they also will be very proud to tell their friends that they climbed the Great Wall. But if they are likely to get bored and tired with grand museums and the like, remember to add some fun activities just for them, and they will be more amenable during the tour.

2. Shanghai

If you are traveling with kids, please remember to add some kid-centric activities just for them, and they'll probably be more amenable during your journey. In Shanghai, there are more than enough places to excite the little ones.

3. Hong Kong


Hong Kong is a perfect destination for family tours, with parks, temples, museums, and nature reserves. Children will have fun meeting cartoon characters in Disneyland, taking a boat ride at a fishing village, and riding the tram all way up to the Victoria Peak. They can also shop for some interesting but inexpensive souvenirs for themselves and their friends at home.

4. Guilin

Traveling in Guilin is mostly about natural beauty and leisure. Guilin has the most typical karst topography in the world, with limpid rivers and lakes, verdant hills, grotesque rocks and mysterious caves. Touring Guilin and the surrounding towns of Yangshuo and Longsheng is all about scenery and leisure, such as cruising along the Li River, pedaling in the countryside, and visiting minority villages. Visiting the local market and learning to cook a Chinese dish is also fun.
