TOP 5 FAMILY ACTIVITIES YOU REALLY WANT TO TRY IN SOUTHEST ASIA

The question how you and your family can spend time together will probably come up first thing in your mind or will occur to you sooner of later. The good news is that, Vietnam is a great place for your family to be in.

As you will soon find out, the sense of community – where people care for each other and about each other – still very much prevails in Vietnamese lifestyle. You can easily find yourself in a place where there are many moms taking their children out for a walk in late afternoon or many playgrounds where kids of your offspring’ ages gather and eager to make a new friend. Adding to that, Vietnam is no short of travelling opportunities where you can take your family out for hiking, swimming or camping.

Below are some suggested activities and places for you and your family to spend a meaningful time together:

1. Biking in Hoa Lu, Hoi An, Thailand…

A holiday in Southeast Asia is even more sensational if you go off the beaten path. There is no better way to see the sights than on one of our many cycling trips in a Southeast Asia.

2. Day trip to amusement parks

There are plenty of great amusement parks in Ho Chi Minh City and several in Hanoi where your kids will surely enjoy themselves learning about the traditions of Vietnam while having a blast with the roller coaster. In Ho Chi Minh City, try Suoi Tien (45 minutes from District 1) or Dai Nam (1 hour 45 minutes from District 1). In Danang, make sure you visit Bana Hills which is only half an hour from downtown and can be accessed by a fun cable car ride. In Hanoi, Westlake Water Park is a prime spot for the summer, or you can consider some smaller calmer ones like Lenin Park (next to Hanoi Circus) or Thu Le Zoo.

3. Weekend runaway to the beach

One of the many great things about Vietnam is its enviably long coastline. Beaches run along from North to South so you will never be too far from one.

Although some beaches will have more entertainment facilities than others, a weekend will be enough to enjoy most. If your family is based in Hanoi, read out articles on the 5 beaches nearby the capital.

If you are in Ho Chi Minh City, head to Vung Tau (2.5 hours away) or Mui Ne (4 hours away) and do not forget to try water sports. If you are in Nha Trang, Danang or Hue, the beaches are only steps away.

If you can afford it, book a room at a beachfront resort – most will offer spa service or private pool for kids.
