Kids climbing rocks in SuzhouI am pretty proud of this article. I have traveled all over China with my kids and so it's about time I put together a list of recommendations for you. What I've tried to do is think about activities my kids have (or would) enjoy that the whole family likes. So this isn't a list of amusement parks and indoor rooms with bouncy castles. These activities are things that you may not have thought of, places you might not have considered going, but all that kids of all ages will most likely enjoy.

Wow! What a great list! You are rightly proud of this one. I must be a kid, because there are so many things I want to do after reading your article. Can’t wait to get to the Shaolin Temple! You are making me think about other kid-friendly activities and I think I’d add: ride a bike around the wall in Xi’an, for older kids. Also, if you’re game to take the beautiful hike through the Tiger Leaping Gorge, it’s easy to hire an accompanying horse, which could serve as the sag wagon for tired young ones, as well as carry your backpack! Since I no longer have minor children, can I add that I look forward to traveling with yours again?

Great ideas Kathy! Thanks, I’ll have to start creating another Top Twenty List. And yes, we too are looking forward to our next expedition together – hopefully this time without the gastro bug!
