Itinerary Help with China Trip with 14- and 10-year-old

Jump to last reply

Greetings! I am in the *very* early stages of planning a trip to China for our family of four, which includes boys who will be 14 and 10 by the time we go next March. My husband has spent a lot of time in Beijing, and I've been there briefly, but we're eager to venture further afield. Our boys are not really amusement park kids - they love animals, and they're sometimes mini-foodies when we travel.

We will definitely start off in Beijing, and our boys want to see the terra cotta warriors in Xian and pandas in Chegdu, but that's as far as I've gotten because I'm overwhelmed. So here are some initial questions as I try to pull together a 2-ish-week trip:
- What are your don't-miss-'em recommendations, either for cities or activities?
- Do you have a favorite restaurant, park, show, etc. that older kids are likely to love?
- How long do you think we should take in Xian (just a day trip from Beijing? an overnight stay? two nights?)?
- How long in Chegdu, and what else do you think the boys would be interested in seeing, other than the pandas? (I've heard it's an absolutely lovely area, but loveliness is often wasted on them.)
- Would you go to Tibet, or is it just too far to travel for the limited amount of time we have?

I'm sure to have many, many more questions as plans become more concrete, but I'd appreciate any advice you can offer on this stuff for now.
-mm
