Planning on UK end of the year as well. But won't it be too cold in the winter?
Cold or not I feel it's subjective. The bad thing about winter time is the day is so short. 4pm onwards is like night time.
It would be cold but just wear sensibly and it will be fine. I love Europe in winter actually because there's such a melancholy feel in the air. Plus there will be lesser people.

There's also a plus side to the day being short. Sunrises and Sunsets can be easily seen!

Saw some people mentioning Beijing and Shanghai earlier on... I agree F&E for these huge cities are better.

Nowadays they have a lot of day tours (at least in Beijing, dk about Shanghai). The day tours (we chose English as it was likely to be less crowded and it sure was) do include shopping stops but we were not pressurized at all. The shops were state-run shops and they were focused on educating visitors about Chinese Culture.

The metro was also great (at least in Shanghai.. dk about Beijing), just avoid peak hour if not you will be squashed. Taxis were not expensive either but you may get stuck in a jam.

Isit the first time your family is going to Japan?

If you like city life, then you you can visit Tokyo. Some places of interest include Disneyland, Shibuya and Shinjuku. They also have a Gundam themed shopping mall and Science Museum known as Miraikan in Odaiba.

If you prefer more of the rustic lifestyle and want to have a more slow paced holiday, then Kyoto is the place for your family. There are many historic temples like Kiyomizu-dera, Kinkakuji, Fushimi Inari Shrine. There is also the bamboo forest known as Arashiyama bamboo grove.

This summer I'm going to visit Barcelona, Spain. That's my old dream. I want to rent a scooter at vesping.com to explore the city better. I've already found one reliable service for booking scooters with competitive prices. I heard so many positive reviews about this city so I just want to admire its amazing buildings and cuisine.

You may want buy your tickets online, and early, to avoid disappointment. Since you are visiting 2 parks, the 2-Day Pass is a very good option.

Klook is offering them at SGD161, pick up from Haneda / Narita Airport or Shinjuku. Will probably save you some money from the exchange rate compared to buying direct.
