Tips for Traveling with Kids to China

What's the best time for traveling with kids in China?

China is suitable for traveling with kids all year round. In terms of thermal comfort, the best time is spring and autumn. Summer is too hot, while winter is too cold, but February is a good time for kids to participate in the celebration of Chinese New Year and learn about traditional Chinese culture. 

How to plan a trip to China with kids?

Plan your private itinerary with easy pace to avoid tight schedule and fatigue. Find some interesting and kid-friendly places to go and to do, such as parks, playgrounds, zoos, dumpling making, and calligraphy learning for them to run and take a break from the trip.

Do I need to mentally prepare my kids for the trip?

It is very necessary to mentally prepare your kids for the trip. You can ask them what they know and like about China, describe the fun part of the trip, such as visiting the Great Wall, and taking photo with giant panda. Introduce, or better illustrate the places you will visit on the map. Guide your kids to learn about the destinations, and let them involve in the trip planning.

Let kids join in packing

Make a list and ask them to join in packing. Help them think what to bring for their trip to China. Bring along one or two of their favorite toys or stuff, and let them know about it, which will pacify and entertain them during the trip. Bring a change of clothes for change of weather, some common medicines, and mosquito repellent.

Surprise your kids

Kids easily get bored over time. Play games and plan some activities for them, don’t wait after they start to get bored and disgruntled. Prepare some little surprises to give them when you reach a certain destination, to keep them in an anticipating and happy mood. Consider wearing similar clothes or clothes with the same colors, to help your kids recognize and also make them feel fun.


Prepare some food and snacks such as cookies and milk powder, and bring along with you. Bring a thermal mug, so that you can make milk whenever hot water is available.

Excretion Issues

A little forethought is needed when it comes to excretion issues of kids at a very young age. Prepare enough tissues, wet wipes, disposal bags, diapers and changes of clothe.

Take a rest

Spare enough time for your kid to take a rest during the trip. Keep an eye on him/her when at rest. To enhance your kid’s memory about the trip, besides writing a travel diary, you can also buy postcards at each place you visit, and let your kid write or draw whatever he/she wants to regarding the trip.

How to avoid getting lost with your kids?

Prepare a contact card and let your kid carry along. The contact card should list kid’s name, parents’ name, phone number and hotel name of each city you will stay at. Tell your kid to show the contact card to the police if he/she gets lost. A wristband or watch with GPS is convenient for locating your kid. Parents should keep an eye on the kid any time, especially in crowded public places.

What clothes to prepare for kids?

Make sure you bring enough clothes to deal with the change of climate and environment. Always bring a change of clothes for your kids. Prepare for weather changes by dressing in layers. It is necessary to prepare rain-proof clothes and umbrella when traveling in spring and autumn.

Prepare some common medicine for kids.

Before the trip, ask your child’s doctor to prescribe some common medicines for anti-fever, anti-diarrhea, anti-nausea or cold cure, and bring them along with you. Go to the hospital immediately if it is in serious condition.

How to avoid risk during the trip?

During the trip, there might be some places with potential risks that you need to be aware of. On the Great Wall, mind the bricks and stone beside your feet, and don’t stand on the edge to take photos. On the ancient city wall of Xi’an, watch out for electric golf carts and pedestrians when you ride the bike. When you are on water vehicle, like on the Yangtze River cruise, Li River cruise or bamboo raft, take care not to fall into water. Mind the traffic and road condition when you cycle in the countryside of Yangshuo. When you cross the road, walk on zebra crossing and look both sides even the green light is on. Require a car child seat when you use a car during the trip.
