The hot springs are great for both parents and children: they have warm mineral water, but the depth of the pools is only suitable for adults. There are two indoor pools and one in the open air. To find yourself in a fairy tale, it is worthwhile to visit the Park of Lanterns where tourists are greeted by a dragon. In a huge castle, you can wander through many rooms for hours. The atmosphere is created by magical lights. The Olympic Park is famous for its dancing fountain and laser show.
For those wishing to visit a real wonderland, Disneyland has recently opened in Shanghai. It is the first amusement park in mainland China, which has a Disney castle, six themed zones, as well as rides for children and adults. On site, there are themed hotels, shopping areas, and a place for a quiet pastime. Entrance tickets there are cheaper than in any other Disneyland of the world. One important feature: the price of a ticket for a child does not depend on age but on height. Children with a height lower than 120 cm enter without paying, while those higher than 140 cm have to buy an adult ticket. Copyright

It is interesting that China has not one but two Disneylands. Disneyland in Hong Kong was opened first. Architects took into account the need to integrate European culture into the Asian traditions. The park is built in a picturesque place between a mountain resembling a dragon and gentle tiger-like hills. Disneyland includes four thematic zones, and each one is unique in its own way. Compared with European parks, the Chinese is the smallest one, but this does not prevent visitors from plunging into the magical world of Disney. Children will enjoy walks with fantastic characters and evening shows with fireworks.
Chengdu is China's main farm for breeding and studying pandas. Here, one-day internships are provided for children. They can practice caring for bears, and hug a panda for a few minutes for $ 210 (the price is not fixed). However, it's not so easy to do this since a panda can be hugged by no more than twenty people a day. Therefore, be sure to register in advance. In addition to big bears, the park is inhabited by small pandas, rare species of birds, golden monkeys, and Chinese tigers. All the animals are under special protection.

In quiet city parks, one can launch paper kites or ride an antique-like carriage.
Hangzhou (杭州) - China A trip to the Great Wall of China does not seem to be the most attractive activity for children, but there is entertainment for them too. You can take the lift in the Mutianyu section, and then go down on a sled to the valley. Teens will surely remember 1580-meter-long trail. In the southern part of Hainan, don't miss your chance to explore Monkey Island. At the entrance, tourists are greeted by small monkeys with flags. During a walk around the island, visitors can feed the macaque, watch circus and theatrical performances. Birds flying in the park are cashiers who take bills out from their hands as payment for the show.
