I was wondering if anyone had any experience travelling with children this age to China?
We are considering taking 2 of our kids on a special trip away next year and we're considering China as a potential destination.
From the reading I've done to date, would be looking at 3 days in Beijing including a trip to the Great Wall, overnight train to Xian, 2 days Xian with the Warriors and exploring Xian, and then finishing with a few days in Shanghai.
I am not keen on organised group tours - would rather be independent, but with a local guide.
I'd love to hear from anyone who's done something similar with kids - especially with regards to food and safety, and any must-do activities in these locations.
Acrobat shows, and ?bike-riding on Xian wall are 2 on my list!
