The locals are warm and friendly, always ready to assist, and they love kids! In the cities, there are many parks and playgrounds where children can play, while in the countryside, you can explore nature trails or take a bike ride through some of Vietnam’s breathtaking landscapes.



The best destination to visit with your family 


Here is a selection – though not exhaustive – of destinations that will appeal to the whole family, especially your children. Each of these places offers fun and/or playful activities for all ages that your kids will surely love.


Mai Chau and Pu Luong

Just two hours from Hanoi, Mai Chau is easily accessible and will appeal to the whole family. Spend a few nights in a traditional stilt house to make the most of this charming valley. Leave your stress at the door – the spectacular rice fields will even help the busiest parents find inner peace. Go on a short family hike in the Pu Luong Nature Reserve or cycle along trails through the rolling rice fields. A textile workshop with the White Thai ethnic group is an excellent opportunity to broaden children’s horizons and learn more about the ethnic cultures of northern Vietnam. Mai Chau and Pu Luong are known for their family-friendly hospitality, don’t hesitate !


Hoi An

Hoi An is much more than the UNESCO-listed old town. Those who venture around the city will discover a peaceful way of life in the Vietnamese countryside that you will especially appreciate. Your family can, for example, choose to spend a few days on An Bang Beach or in the middle of the rice paddies of Cam Thanh, discovering Hoi An in a very different way. A day at the beach means jumping in the waves and enjoying fresh seafood with your feet in the sand. You can also explore Tra Que village known for its organic farmersmany cooking classes are organized where you go with your family to harvest garden produce before cooking them.


Nha Trang

Nha Trang is a must for a family beach vacation. Cam Ranh International Airport makes arrival easy, and from there, it’s just a short journey to this sunny coastal city. Once there, you’ll have plenty of activities to choose from: book a snorkeling trip, visit Hòn Mun Island to admire colorful marine life, and explore the excellent Oceanographic Museum. Parents looking to relax should try the city’s hot mud baths and thermal resorts. Afterward, you can take a dip in one of the pools or book a private room for a full day of relaxation. Hòn Bà Nature Reserve, about two hours from Nha Trang city, is the perfect place for a beautiful day out. Not to forget the VinWonders amusement park that can entertain the whole family with its giant water slides, lazy river, wave pool, and the world’s largest floating obstacle course. It’s even possible to stay overnight on Vinpearl Island to enjoy the beautiful Vinpearl beach, visit the amusement park, and take the cable car over the water together.



Mui Ne

How about learning to surf on the sand dunes? You can do that in Mui Ne, a beach resort in southern Vietnam. Indeed, the red and white sand dunes just outside the city are a vast playground for sandboarding. Kids will have a blast sliding down the dunes repeatedly on improvised boards. In addition to this specific activity, all kinds of water sports can be enjoyed in Mũi Né, including kitesurfing, the most popular sport in the area! For added convenience, stay near the ocean at one of the many resorts the city has to offer.



Phu Quoc

Phu Quoc Island is certainly today’s trendy beach destination in Vietnam. The island is also particularly family-friendly, with a wide range of accommodations, from five-star resorts with private villas and pools to beachfront guesthouses. Visit fishing villages and bee farms to immerse yourself in the local culture, take the kids on the world’s longest cable car ride over the sea, and spend your days surrounded by sandy beaches and turquoise waters. Family-friendly resorts on Long Beach and Ông Lang Beach are quieter than those around the town of Dương Đông. At the end of the day, keep an eye out for the island’s famous sunsets. You can book your stay at the InterContinental Phu Quoc, which occupies one of the most beautiful stretches of golden sand on Long Beach. The resort’s children’s club, Planet Trekkers, offers indoor and outdoor facilities with daily activities and free childcare services. Your children can learn to cook, go on treasure hunts, or participate in traditional Vietnamese games while parents escape for a well-deserved massage at the HARNN Heritage Spa.



Fun activities to do in Vietnam with kids


n addition to the activities mentioned above in our recommended destinations, we have selected 10 other fun and enjoyable activities to do with (or without!) your children.



Kayaking in Lan Ha bay 

For your cruise in Halong Bay, we recommend the Lan Ha area around Cat Ba Island. You can stay on the island and take a cruise (for a day or 2 days) in this peaceful bay, away from the crowds and large boats. One of the favorite activities in the bay is, of course, kayaking. This way, you’ll truly appreciate the splendid and massive natural scenery surrounding you. Your children might even have the chance to spot some monkeys during this excursion.


Making lanterns in Hoi An

Hoi An is famous, among other things, for its lanterns. The good news is that you can make your own lanterns there! There are workshops quite frequently, and it’s even possible to drop in spontaneously.

The bamboo frames for the lamps are already prepared. You get to choose the fabric and colors for the cover. Once you have your materials, they’ll show you how to stretch and attach it to the frame.

The cost of the workshop is around 40,000 VND, which is approximately the same amount you would pay for a similar lamp at the night market. It’s a great, fun idea for children, and they can take them home as souvenirs


Watching water puppet show

The traditional water puppet show is a must-see for a family trip to Vietnam. Although entirely performed in Vietnamese, the story is understandable, whether it’s presented in a lengthy performance or through several short acts. The puppeteers stand behind the stage while an orchestra plays accompaniment, sometimes cheerfully shouting at the puppets in the water – making them resemble a rice paddy, in a tradition dating back to the 11th century.

The humor and magic displayed by the artists are infectious, making the performance even more captivating for children. The show lasts about an hour, which is enough to hold the children’s attention (and sitting in the theater is a great opportunity to take a break from the often tiring city tour!).


Watching a show by Lune production

If you’re not interested in the traditional show, we suggest attending one of Lune Production‘s performances. Blending elements of circus, theater, and musical comedy, the artists present a truly dazzling show! The shows take place in Hoi An and Ho Chi Minh City, and you can book tickets online. Please note that tickets start at around 30 euros per person, but we assure you it’s worth it! At the end of the show, you can take photos with the artists, which will undoubtedly be a wonderful memory


Visiting Ba Na Hills Fantasy Park 

Sun World Ba Na Hills has recently gained some fame thanks to its photogenic Golden Bridge. Almost designed for Instagram, this golden bridge is supported by two huge stone hands that seem to emerge directly from the mountain below. What people may not know, however, is that this bridge is just one attraction among many in an extensive theme park built on Bana Mountain near Danang.

You can visit a German-style beer cellar, take a tour of a French castle with its own wine cellar, or stroll through a ornate Gothic cathedral.

For children, there are countless activities at Sun World Ba Na Hills. The park is connected by a series of cable cars that kids will love to ride. The streets of the European village are filled with shows and live performances. There’s a huge three-story fantasy park filled with arcade games and interactive rides, including an alpine coaster and a climbing wall. The best part is that all the games and rides are included in the theme park’s entrance fee, so your children can play for hours at no extra cost.

Sun World Ba Na Hills is located about an hour’s drive from Danang, which is roughly 1.5 hours from the famous tourist town of Hoi An. Tickets cost 750,000 VND (30 euros) for adults and 600,000 VND (23 euros) for children over one meter in height. Children under one meter in height enter for free.


Fun outdoor activities at “Dark cave” in Phong Nha Ke Bang

Phong Nha Ke Bang National Park will undoubtedly be a both magical and adventurous visit for your children. We recommend three caves to explore: Phong Nha Cave, which you can visit by boat, Paradise Cave, incredibly beautiful and explored on foot, and the so-called Dark Cave which has outdoor activities. You’ll first experience Vietnam’s longest zip line: 400 meters! Afterward, you’ll need to swim to the cave’s entrance. As the name suggests, this cave, which you’ll explore over a length of about 100 meters, is completely dark. Your guide will lead you inside. Surprise, at the end of the cave, there are mud baths, which you’ll try before moving on to a kayaking activity. This Dark Cave is ideal for families traveling with teenagers.


Visiting the Crazy House in Dalat

Children love strange and wonderful places, which is why the Crazy House in Da Lat, Vietnam, will surely fascinate them! Designed by the Vietnamese architect Đặng Việt Nga, the Crazy House started as a cafe and is now a public museum, as well as a fully functional guesthouse. After a brief introduction from a friendly guide, you can accompany your children through this bizarre complex – imagine curved staircases, fantastical turrets, and all that lies in between.

The property is filled with strangely contorted buildings, artistic installations, and bright, vibrant colors – the little ones won’t know where to look! And if they get a little bored, there’s an original café on-site where they can enjoy a refreshing drink, or take their ice cream to the central gardens to relax.

A word of caution: some of the upper staircases don’t have very high railings, so children must be closely supervised.


Alpine coaster in Da Lat

Let’s stay in Da Lat and try the Datanla New Alpine Coaster, a unique alpine attraction that allows you to enjoy the beauty of the region at your own pace.

Located near the Datanla Waterfalls, this alpine coaster offers visitors a high-speed descent on Asia’s longest track, measuring 2,400 meters in length. This two-seater coaster is equipped with a magnetic braking system that not only maintains an appropriate distance between cars but also allows you to control your own descent speed.

Let gravity do all the work as you descend on a multi-level track through a vibrant pine forest with a view of the waterfall. An eco-friendly and thrilling adventure that will delight both young and old!


Cable car in Phu Quoc

We’ve already mentioned it above, but the Phu Quoc Cable Car is one of the most impressive and memorable activities to do in Vietnam.

The cable car is nearly 8 km long, the longest in the world today. It takes 15 minutes to reach the other end. This means that for a full 15 minutes, you are in the sky in a glass cabin looking down at the turquoise waters and hundreds of fishing boats that resemble colorful pieces of paper on the water. At the end of the ride, you can head to the white sandy beach on Hon Thom Island and have a great time in the playground located there.


Cu Chi tunnels 

Let’s end with a historical yet fun outing: the Cu Chi Tunnels. Symbolic of the ingenuity and determination of the Vietnamese during their war against the French and then the Americans, this tunnel system extended for up to 250 kilometers at the height of the war! Over 15,000 people sought shelter in these tunnels, and these underground passageways were known as the endpoint of the Ho Chi Minh Trail. A small portion of these tunnels has been preserved, allowing visitors to get a sense of the living conditions during that period. It’s a great introduction for your children to the Vietnam War, certainly leaving a memorable impression on their minds.
