Talk about an amazing Spring break!

Sasha and Malia Obama are tagging along with their mom, First Lady Michelle Obama, and their grandmother Marian Robinson, for a seven-day, three-city tour of China that will focus on education and cultural exchange.

The Obamas begin their trip in Beijing where Mrs. Obama will spend the day with Peng Liyuan, the First Lady of China. FLOTUS will also meet with Chinese and American students who have studied abroad in each other’s countries.

The trip is being dubbed as "especially meaningful" given tensions between the U.S. and China following President Barack Obama's recent meeting with the Dalai Lama, whom China sees as a violent separatist, reports Reuters.
