What are some good restaurants and attractions to check out with the kids?

My husband and I are taking our kids on a tour of China and they're giving us one free day in Beijing to explore on our own.  Are there any family-friendly restaurants or attractions that we should check out?

    Check out the restaurant 1949 - The Hidden City by the embassy area. It's located inside a traditional Chinese courtyard style house with a Chinese restaurant, spanish restaurant, and a bar. The Peking duck there is to die for. They also have a small art gallery.

    We really enjoyed The Noodle Loft , and it would be a great restaurant for kids. The kitchen is open, and you can watch the chefs make the noodles. It's quite entertaining, plus the food is both tasty and reasonable.

    If you like duck, you have to go to Da Dong Roast Duck. The duck is great... but so is everything else. Don't be shy about trying a bunch of things. Nice, shiny coffee-table book menu with pictures makes things easier.

    Also walk around the Donghuamen Night Market. There are a bunch of food stands. Don't forget to try the silkworm cocoons.

      Food stands with silkworm cocoons? That might be neat to see, but I'm not sure if I can stomach that... my kids love duck, though! Thanks, Brew! · (0 likelikes)

    If you are looking into some adventure, I would suggest Fangshan Restaurant. As a restaraunt with a history of over 80 years, it's decorated and the waritress dressed and also the food are what exactly like in the royal family of Qing Dynersty . It's located within Beihai Park, so you and your kids would enjoy the view for sure.

    I leave the phone numbers of the restaraunt in below for your convenient. 0086-10-64042573.

    If you just had enough of Chinese food and want to taste western food for a change but with a Chinese atomerspere, you should definitly check out Temple Restaurant Beijing http://www.trb-cn.com/.

    The kids might like National Stadium (Bird's Nest). The design of this arty but highly functional stadium were inspired by Chinese ceramics and it took 13 submissions from architects to arrive at this inspiring Bird's Nest. Artist Ai Weiwei oversaw the project.

    Also try the Dashanzi Art District. Really cool place with all kinds of crazy art.

      I was told by several other people that I have to go to visit the Water Cube and Bird's Nest, too! We'll head there for sure. That art district sounds neat, too. Thanks, Shauna! · (0 likelikes)
