With a nickname like the "Pearl of the Orient," it's not surprising Shanghai offers some of the most rewarding attractions and activities in the Far East.
Kids will enjoy Shanghai World Financial Center and Shanghai Ocean Aquarium. Change things up with a short trip to Suzhou Garden Museum in Suzhou (about 1h 25 min away). There's lots more to do: go for a walk through The Bund (Wai Tan), appreciate the history behind Jade Buddha Temple, see the interesting displays at Shanghai Museum (Shanghai Bowuguan), and take in nature's colorful creations at Yu Garden (Yuyuan).

Situated in a basin between two mountain ranges, Taipei appeals to tourists with its blend of Asian cultures, living side by side amidst Japanese-era mansions and Taoist temples.
Family-friendly places like Taipei Zoo and Fuzhong 15 will thrill your kids. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Taipei: YehLiu Geopark (in Wanli), Leofoo Village Theme Park (in Guanxi) and Ruifang (Chiufen (Jiufen Old Street) & Jioufen Historical House). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of National Palace Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Lungshan Temple, find something for the whole family at BabyBoss, and make a trip to Lucky Art Crayon Factory.
