China may not be the first thought when compiling a list of ideal destinations when travelling with kids; however Beijing is a fantastic place to have a family adventure holiday.

If you can put aside the sometimes chaotic nature of life in this wonderful city then you can dig deeper into the culture and intrigue that the streets hold for you.

It may not seem it from the outside but children are incredibly welcomed in Beijing, in fact you may actually have requests from Chinese people of a photograph with your child, such is the fascination with the western look.

Apart from this seemingly strange, or at least to us, interest in you, there is so much to do and see in Beijing that you will never run out of things to do. There are some must see family attractions in Beijing; Tiananmen Square which appears as if just off of a postcard, the Forbidden City situated right in the heart of Beijing itself and the world wide marvel that is the Great Wall.

If you do decide to visit the Great Wall then we suggest Mutianyu which is the best place for young children to enjoy this manmade spectacle. Keeping on the theme of family friendly activities you might want to pay a visit to the Beijing Zoo and also the Aquarium where you will come across some fascinating and exciting animals that will really keep your little monkeys happy. Or maybe take in an acrobatics show at Chaoyang Theatre that will have you jumping for joy.

We do suggest that you visit Beijing during September and October or perhaps March to May to really enjoy this wonderful destination at its best.

There is so much to see and do during a family holiday in Beijing that it is difficult to it up. Our best suggestion is to book yourself a break and discover the city for yourself, one beautiful and inspiring attraction at a time.
