My family plan to travel to China during Winter - Jan 2019. Will travel on our own by public transport and will be there with my family of 10pax (8 adults + 2 kids (age 2 & 4 years old).
I have 2 option for the trip:
2. We plan to do Beijing-Harbin-Shanghai. Our starting point will be in Beijing. So from Beijing plan to take train to Harbin. As we don't plan to go back to Beijing, maybe we willl book flight directly to Shanghai. My main concern here, whether we can stand the winter cold in Harbin.
I'm wondering whether 10 days is sufficient for us to cover those places? Can anyone recommend it is better for option 1 or 2?
