At the very beginning stages of planning a trip to Shanghai and Beijing

Jump to last reply

My husband is going to a conference in Shanghai in early June. My 8 year-old daughter and I are going to come along. Our plan is to spend some time in Shanghai and then take the train to Beijing and then fly out of Beijing.

We are trying to figure out how much time to spend in total and in each place. We probably have about 2 weeks (give or take a few days). Would 5 days in Shanghai (understanding DH has to spend 2 of them in a conference), and 7 days in Beijing be enough to hit the key stuff? I have a childhood friend and my daughter has a classmate from last year living in Shanghai who we can spend a little time with.

I am a little worried about dealing with pollution (and generally being overwhelmed). I am wondering if maybe planning a few day excursion into the countryside somewhere might be a good idea. Any thoughts/recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

Anyone else travel with a school age kid to China have advice on things to do/see?

Thanks!
