Early stage planning a China trip with kids

Jump to last reply

It appears as if we are going to be taking our sons (10,10,11) to China in March for about 10-14 days. Everything is in the early stages so I am just exploring different ideas and itineraries right now. Beijing is a must for us. So, thinking we will start there. I know it will be chilly but we are coming from Minnesota so we will be ready for that. It is where else to go that has me a bit stumped. Shanghai seems obvious but not sure how much my kids will get out of that. Xian? They have already been to Hong Kong. We will most likely be flying through Narita on the way there so one idea is to spend 4or 5 days in Tokyo and then 4 or 5 in Beijing and 2 in Shanghai before flying home.

My kids are fluent in Mandarin and great travelers, adventurous eaters, etc.

I appreciate any thoughts you all might have.

Thank you
