One exciting nature camping site to check out this weekend is Dong Mo lake, in Son Tay town, Ba Vi district.
Your family will enjoy a day full of fun and laughter at Joy Camping and Camping Sport Dong Mo.
People can enjoy the camping atmosphere when organizing barbecue parties, participating in activities such as cycling, fishing, and kayaking.
In addition, Hanoi has many other campsites such as Long Bien longan garden, Suoi Hai lake in Tan Linh, Ba Vi, and Chom Nui lake in Nam Son, Soc Son.
About an hour away from the city center, the break of spring brings good weather conditions for paragliding at Bu Hill, Nam Phuong Tien commune, Chuong My district.

The take-off point is located at a height of 655m above sea level, giving "wings" to people fly over the hills, seeing white reeds blowing in the wind. Many Northern pilots also take off here.
People can register to licensed clubs and organizations such as Northern Aviation Club, Mebayluon Paragliding, Vietwings Hanoi, and Hanoi Paragliding.
The cost for paragliding is from 1.2 to 1.5 million VND (US $56 -65), including a shuttle bus from Hanoi to the take-off point, drinks, snacks, flying with a professional and filming with GoPro.

Better yet, have you group of friends here and get carried away with chatter, laughter and the occasional, inevitable bickering. You can order your cup of tea or coffee at a very good price (VND 30,000 - 60,000, about US $1.3 - 2.6).
From lesser-known role-playing titles such as Blood Bound and Shadow Hunter to household names like Clue and Connect4, Minipolo does not disappoint with their selection, and the group squabbles over what to play can be heard around here far too often.
