Where? The bustling historic city ofShanghai.

Why go there?Although it usually summons up visions of gleaming skyscrapers, this massive city is actually very child-friendly – and easy to get around. 

Children will love...The Shanghai Acrobatic Troupe’s performances at the Shanghai Centre Theatre, the river cruises and the Shanghai Science And Technology Museum with its hands-on exhibits.

Parents will love...Perfecting the art of bartering on shopping trips, and the contrast betweenthe historic British settlement on one side of the Huangpu River and space-age new Shanghai on the other.

Stay at… The city’s Marriott Executive Apartments Union Square combine comfort with the freedom of self-catering. Seven nights for a family of fourcost approximately £1,500. Visit www.marriott.co.uk
