For both parents and kids to Vietnam, a two or three-day Halong Bay cruise is win-win – you can laze in the sun, gaze at the scenery, maybe even read a book while your kids can have a fabulous time searching for the different shaped karsts, enjoying delicious food, learning Taichi on board.

There are also plenty of optional activities to burn off kids' energy. They can kayak, explore caves, visit a fishing village, go swimming or simply play the sands on the beach. 

3. Homestay in a traditional village in Sapa

For children who somewhat take their lifestyle for granted, a night in a Sapa homestay can be a rather humbling experience. Deep in the mountains of northern Vietnam is the gorgeous landscape of Sapa, home to cascading rice terraces. And within this is a small village of stilt houses where you can spend the night with a friendly local family. Dinner will be cooked over the open fire, bed will be a mattress on the floor under a mosquito net and the hot shower? Well, there isn’t one. This is not for families who must have their creature comforts, but if you can forego these then a night in a village will be an experience that the children will remember forever… definitely one of our top Vietnam with kids experiences.

4. Cooking class

Kids love to do things on their own so they certainly will love to have a cooking lesson that’s popular in Vietnam. Families can cook local dishes together, tour a food market , visit a herb garden and enjoy meals with fellow classmates. This activity you can join in Hanoi, Hoi An or Halong bay cruise.
