*** Take a cycle-rickshaw ride through the backstreets of Hanoi
Address: Any streets in Hanoi Old Quarter. Most crowded in front of Thang Long Water Puppet Theater

The first impression of your kids about Hanoi is probably the crazy teeming streets of Hanoi especially in Hanoi Old Quarter where is made up of 36 streets, with the special named after the commodity that used to mainly trade there, for instance, silver, bamboo, paper, etc.

Besides, without any pavements in most of the streets plus having the presence of so many motorbikes (almost everywhere), finding the way to let your kids enjoy the mayhem in a more relaxed feeling can be a challenge so one of the ideal options to get acquainted with this area is hopping on a cyclo. Cyclo will offer your kids a chill & interesting experience as well as an open space without any windows or doors to enjoy sightseeing and daily life of locals.

There are two ways to arrange this:
• One is just simply hopping on one of the many cyclos on the street but remember to ask and try your luck at bartering with a cyclo driver. One suggestion is that you should ask your hotel concierge or your travel agency to recommend a fair price so you know where to begin bartering. 
• On the other hand, you can arrange this in advance through your travel agency. Sometimes, this cyclo experience has been included in your Hanoi city day tour.

*** Try Hanoi Street Food Tour
Though Vietnam is well-known as one of the famous countries in the world for the delicious street food, there are still some tourists complaining about the hygiene of the food which might cause them food poison due to their sensitive tummies. The best advice is that you should ask your hotel for some reliable restaurants addresses and the other option is taking a Street Food Tour from a prestige travel agency.

With the Hanoi Food Tour, you and your kids will have a great opportunity to taste the balanced authentic Hanoi cuisines such as Pho, Bun Cha, Banh Cuon & spring rolls which are fragrant, not spicy & so delicious.

1. Best things to do with kids in Ninh Binh

If you wish to find a place with some country air & a slower pace of life to have some space for your kids to run around in & especially for you, to breathe again, stunning & magical Ninh Binh is without a doubt everyone's favourite destination especially for travelling with kids. Make sure to check some of the most interesting activities that our lovely small customers love to do.

*** Take a boat ride in Tam Coc or Trang An, Ninh Binh

According to our customers, there is NOTHING more relaxing than sailing in a scenic boat ride through golden rice fields, under many vertical limestone karsts, mystical caves such as Hang Ca, Hang Hai & Hang Ba in Tam Coc. 

The most fascinating thing that your kids will surely be happy to see and want to try about the boats in Tam Coc is the women who row the wooden paddles using their feet to ride the boats. This special technique takes much time to practice and months to master. However, compared between Tam Coc & Trang An, Tam Coc is a huge & bustling tourist attraction which attracts a great number of tourists per day. 

If you wish to take a bamboo boat at the less touristy place, Trang An is one of the best alternative choices. This is home to a breathtaking landscape of limestone karst peaks, lush green rice paddies, a variety of caves, temples & canals. Your kids will also enjoy spotting the monkeys clambering on the side of the limestone cliffs.

CENTRAL VIETNAM FOR FAMILY HOLIDAYS

HUE FOR VIETNAM FAMILY HOLIDAYS

1. Best things to do with kids in Hue

*** Discover Hue Imperial Citadel
Address: On the banks of the Perfume River. If you take a taxi, make sure to show him the drop-off point at the correct gate: Hai Muoi Ba Thang Tam Street and take a walk of around 200m to the ticket selling point which is near the main entrance. 
Opening time: Winter 07:00 AM - 05:00 PM, Summer: 07:00 AM - 05:30 PM
Entrance Fee: Adults: 150,000 VND (~ 6.6 USD), Child (Ages 7-12): 30,000 VND (~ 1.4 USD) (For up to date entrance ticket, head to one of their official websites

Scam Alert: I have read that there are some reports about the ticket sellers exchanging notes & claiming the tourists did not give them enough money and demanding more. One example I've heard is when a tourist paid 300,000 VND, part of this is a 100,000 VND note; after receiving the money, the seller quickly swapped his/her 100,000 VND note for a 10,000 VND note under the table and said to him/her pay the correct amount. As a Vietnamese, I hope this never happens to anyone & that seller will be got fine. But just to prevent this happening, you should check and count out the money carefully as you hand it to the seller. Using your phone to capture the notes is also a good way to avoid any trouble.

Most travellers say visiting Hue Imperial Citadel is something that no one can miss as it is one of the highlights when travelling Hue. This place has many open spaces where your kids can run free and have fun while you learn about Vietnam's rich history, traditions and get amazed by the unique and grandiose architecture.

TIP:
+ As Hue Imperial Citadel's layout is rather complicated and you find it easy to get lost, renting a kid-friendly tour guide who can help you navigate and enrich your knowledge will be an ideal option
+ If you have small kids or any family members with limited mobility, you can take electric vehicles at a reasonable price.
