Many wealthy kids are widely traveled.

They're the type to have likely watched a Broadway show in New York or an opera in Sydney. Some take equestrian classes at British estates.

They've also likely visited the likes of Oxford, Harvard and Yale, the British Museum, the Louvre and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guo says.

Chile and Peru have become new hot spots for affluent Chinese families, who make long-haul journeys.

Chinese with US or Schengen visas can enjoy visa-free entry in both countries.

Many shops and restaurants in Peru support UnionPay and AliPay.

Families wander among the stone statues of Chile's Easter Island and ride the Belmond Hiram Bingham, which ranks among the world's most luxurious trains, to explore the ruins of Peru's Machu Picchu.

High-end family tours of the South American nations can feature archeology experts, who explain the history and folklore behind the heritage at such sites as a private museum in Peru's capital, Lima, and a pre-Columbian gallery in Chile.

Nearby Brazil's culture and landscapes are also an emerging draw for well-heeled Chinese families.

They come to enjoy Copacabana's white-sand beaches, Sugarloaf Mountain's cable car and the verdant Amazon Rainforest.
