BEIJING, June 23 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- Summer travelers to Beijing are looking for ways to beat the heat, especially families with younger children. The China Guide ( ), a high quality China travel company, is offering a number of summer activities for families to keep the kids happy and parents entertained.

"As a parent of three children in China I have years of experience dealing with family travel and child-friendly activities," says Peter Danford, owner of The China Guide. "We keep the tour at a pace which suits the children, and is flexible in case they become tired or side tracked."

A popular item on The China Guide's family itineraries is an afternoon at Tuanjiehu Park. It is an off-the-radar spot as it is mostly enjoyed by the local neighbourhood and not a touristy park. Outdoor swimming is available including waves, artificial beach and slides. Small electric boats are available for rent on the lake or a simple stroll around the park path is also relaxing.

The China Guide is also offering a variety of other activities for families that include local parks, amusement rides, the toy market, Kung Fu lessons and the Beijing Zoo. "With a one child policy Chinese tend to give a lot to their children, and thus Beijing has a lot to offer for youngsters," adds Danford.

Families can put together their own custom itinerary using The China Guide's 'Build Your Own Tour' system. Items can be selected based on categories including family-friendly activities and prices are immediate. To see the Build Your Own Tour' system visit:
