Kids don’t hate studying! They just ask for only one “simple” thing: studying and having fun at the same time and if possible, parents should join them!

Further up to the North, where Hanoi capital city is the destination, many opportunities for your kids to try as being an artist in future with lacquer or pottery class or just a drive a round Hanoi, where there are still many historical relics remained for decades which could offer the best history lessons that  they may not interest kids in school. If have more time, let take them to the mountainous areas, where they could see more nature, even stay at house on stilts (home of ethnic minority people) will be really fun and meaningful and then, the holiday could have great ending on Halong Bay that kids could explore caves, floating fishing village, swimming and do kayaking.
