Children's Activities There is a wealth of activities available for children in Vietnam. The Vietnamese love kids and every city has something to offer, such as boat trips, zoos, elephant riding, go-karts and so on. In addition, Vietnam has stunning beaches which are ideal spots for kids to while away the day building sandcastles and paddling. Boat Trips
If you happen to be in the south of Vietnam, then taking a boat trip in the Mekong Delta is an absolute must, especially if you have kids in tow. Canals, swamps and rivers inhabit this breathtaking part of the country which contains rice paddies surrounded by swamps and forests. While in the region, you may also like to tour the Saigon River by river cruise. Those visiting Hue can also explore the picturesque Perfume River. Elephant Riding
Not many kids can say they've ridden an elephant before, yet elephant riding is a popular pastime in Vietnam and a common means of transport for country folk. The best place to go elephant riding in the country is in Da Lat at Tuyen Lake with its large range of beasts and fabulous setting. Elephant riding offers a great experience at a reasonable price. Water Slide Parks
Water parks are becoming increasingly popular in Vietnam and can now be found in most big cities, with Ho Chi Minh City and Da Lat having the most well known ones. Saigon Water Park in Thu Duc district, Ho Chi Minh was Vietnam's first water park, but has since been superseded in popularity by other water parks in the city. Zoos
There are two main zoos in Vietnam; the oldest zoo is in Ho Chi Minh in the south and the other one in Hanoi in the north. Both zoos have a good complement of indigenous animals as well as plenty of exotic and fluffy creatures from around the world. Both zoos have extensive grounds which also contain other attractions and niceties, such as aquariums and temples. Saigon Zoo also has a museum onsite. In addition, Cuc Phuong National Park, near Hanoi Zoo, has a good selection of native Vietnamese animals in the wild.
