Help. We have exactly 1 week with no kids next September (2014). We'd like to go somewhere outside of Canada / US. We're also looking for something adventurous that we might not be able to get to with kids. We're not interested in Europe as we plan to do this in 2015. I have looked all around the world, and have narrowed it down to 4 places: China: For our dates and budget, there are some great flights to both Beijing and Shanghai. If we miss this opportunity, I can't see us going back anytime soon. Panama: Flights are not the best, but looks like a really cool place to visit. We may, in the future, visit Costa Rica or other central America destinations. Manila, Philippines: I don't really know what there is to do here, but relatively inexpensive flights for our dates. Here is our dilema. We think Panama would be the most fun, but we will likely return to Central America at some point in the future. On the other hand, the chance of visiting China in the future is slim since its not on our top list of destinations. We have no interest in going to Manila but largely due to ignorance of what there is to see and do -- we could be convinced otherwise. Here's what we're looking for in our trip: - the opportunity to see something we might not otherwise when travelling with kids - a good time -- for us, this means experiences and sight seeing (as opposed to lying on the beach or getting drunk at a bar) Opinions wanted.
