Experiencing China with Kids

Jan

China is a destination which earns divided opinions, especially when you consider a trip to China with kids.  If you ask around you will get more than one opinion. Before going there I received a confusing flood of information, ranging from 'do not go, no way' and 'my sister was there with four children and really enjoyed'. I was told that you cannot find bread over there. Some claim Chinese do not know a word in English, and even the way they count differs from what we know. I was told that they have a kind of rolled stuff with green beans and it's sweet and delicious, and that they eat pig tails. I was told that the views are stunning but the people are not nice. A few said the south is great… the north is great. A couple I met at a guesthouse in Pokhara left me a phrasebook of English - Chinese and out of sincere concern recommended me not to go at all.
