Edited by Asia Odyssey Travel on 2020-08-23

Do you want to enjoy a happy holiday with your kids? China is a good destination. Check out the top things to do for kids in China as below, which are helpful to plan an unforgettable holiday for your kids.

See Lovely Giant Pandas

Your kids may have seen the lovely pandas in the zoos in your country, but it is a different feeling to see them, or even hold and feed them in China, the hometown of giant pandas. Your kids will like this huge pet very much.

The giant pandas have been living on the earth for over 8 million years. Most them were only living in the bamboo forest with an altitude between 2600 and 3500 meters. The life span of wild pandas is only between 18 and 20 years. In order to save them, China built lots of panda bases, where the pandas can live up to 30 years.

In those panda bases, you kids can not only see pandas playing and eating bamboos, but also learn about the history of biology of the earth.

Traditional Paper Cutting

There are many kinds of traditional folk arts in China. The paper cutting is one of the most traditional and easiest kind of them. Your kids can learn it in the Hutongs in Beijing, a courtyard in Xian, or a small lane in Shanghai. The styles of paper cutting vary in different places in China.

The lucky Chinese characters and animals are the most popular patterns of paper cutting. When your kids finish it, you can paste it on your windows during the Chinese New Year period. It is a very meaningful activity.

Cycle in Yangshuo Countryside

The countryside in Yangshuo is one of the most natural beautiful places in China. The facilities there are better than most other natural beautiful places, so it is very safe for your kids to cycle there. Both normal and double-men bicycles can be hired in Yangshuo. You and your kids can both relax and admire the postcard-wroth hills and rivers while cycling in Yangshuo. After cycling, it is recommended to taste the well-known beer fish.

Hike on the Great Wall

The Great Wall is arguably the most iconic ancient relic in China. It is a great place for your kids to learn about the history of China. Via a hike led by a local guide on a Great Wall section, your kids will find the answers for these questions: Why did Chinese people build the Great Wall? How long is the Great Wall? Where is the Great Wall?

The Mutianyu, located in the suburb of Beijing, is the most recommended Great Wall section for hiking because it is not too steep, and it is well preserved. If you have more time, you can camp on the Great Wall to admire the sunrise. All the necessary camping items can be rented, and we will find the best camping site for you.
