It doesn’t stop there: the services in Moc Chau are also diverse, from eating, drinking to sleeping but fortunately, the cost is quite cheap. If you have children, don't forget to let them experience the process of growing strawberries and picking ripe strawberries. Your family is advised to rent brocade dress to take photos in the tea hill or plum garden to save the memories in the trip.

2. Co To – Pearl Island of the North

Co To is an island located in Quang Ninh province. Not as famous as Ha Long Bay, Co To has not been invested heavily in tourism development. This is the reason why this place is quite deserted and natural. Co To will be an ideal tourist destination for your family because of its beauty and services. Co To Island has many small beaches including Hong Van, Van Chay, etc. with wide, long beaches and smooth, sandy beaches. 

Coming to Co To, you cannot miss the Co To Island Water Park! It is a mini-park on the sea at Hong Van beach. There are various exciting games here. Along with family-kayaking, watching the sunrise is another suggestion.
