Tips for Traveling with Kids in Beijing

It is universally proved that China is the only place on earth where people adore kids just like you do. Kids are warmly welcome everywhere in China, which means you have nothing to worry about when heading into swanky restaurants and hotels with your kids. Moreover, you might be shocked by the fact that Chinese people would line up to pose for photos with your kids, especially those Chinese mothers. However, there is still something you should know before you journey to Beijing with your kids:

Tip 1: Prepare ahead in case of medical issues

Do not panic much if you find out that most of pharmacy stores in Beijing may not have what you want to find for your kids. So it is highly recommended to bring along enough oral hydrating salts or electrolyte solution, an anti-colic product, anti-itch cream, hydrocortisone cream, Benadryl syrup, and sun-block and mosquito repellent. From time to time, you might want to find them very useful on your journey. Anti-fever medicine can be easily found in Beijing, but if you are not sure about it, just bring along your favorite brand from home. More importantly, take your kids to your pediatrician to check out if they need extra vaccines or anti-malaria pills on the journey. Most importantly, find emergency contacts for a major hospital before your journey to Beijing -- preferably an international one – therefore, if your kids get sick or something, your kids will be taken good care of.

Tip 2: No need to frown over the food

There may be some news around about terrible food in Beijing, from steroid-laced meats to exploding water melons, but you really should not worry too much about the food while visiting Beijing with kids. However, if you still have your doubts about the milk powder produced or sold in China, you surely can bring along your own infant formula when journeying to Beijing. Moreover, switching brands may make your kids uncomfortable or even get sick. Worst of all, if you forgot to bring your formula, no worries, just opt for the international brands sold in China, such as Nestlé, Similac and Enfamil. As for ordinary food, there is no way that you could pack all the meals in your suitcases for your kids, but no need to worry much. The food served by the upscale restaurants or hotels is relatively safe and healthy. Safest bet, just avoid street food. Today most Chinese restaurants in Beijing offer kid-friendly options.

Overall, with these tips in mind, you will spend some quality time with kids while visiting Beijing!
