Vietnam may not an obvious destination for a family holiday, but it’s a wonderfully welcoming place to travel with children, especially if you and your kids love to experience new cultures and possess an adventurous spirit.
A country that offers unique and unforgettable lessons in culture, Vietnam offers some of the most spectacular natural scenery in Southeast Asia, from magnificent limestone cliffs, to lush tropical forests and long, empty beaches.
Saigon City is a bustling, chaotic and vibrant metropolitan city, where you can enjoy a walk along the riverside, visit the walking street for some amazing performances, or visit the Night Market for a unique shopping experience. The Old Quarter Of Hanoi is also quite a lively place, with small lanes full of cafes, restaurants, shops, street vendors and the gracious French colonial architecture, that makes it one of Asia’s most beautiful cities.
If you’re looking for a quieter time though, you can take some time out and sail through the breathtakingly beautiful Halong Bay on a traditional Chinese junk, or head for one of Vietnam’s beach resorts, where there are a wealth of water-based activities for kids to enjoy.
Once you’re done with the livelier sights, you can visit the various fruit orchards in the Mekong Delta and try locally-grown fruits. You can also walk around and even try the cocoa fruit from which chocolate is made. Alternatively, you can visit a honey farm and hold a Honey Bee hive or visit a coconut farm and see how they make use of all parts of this super nut. Quite an educational place, we must say!
There are also some spectacular mountain and jungle treks to suit adventurous families, from the tranquil hill station of Dalat in the south, to the enchanting valley of Sa Pa in the northern highlands.
“Kids should find no shortage of things to do on a holiday in Vietnam”, says Nidhi Batra, Little Nirvana Explorers’ co-founder. “As well as the wonderful experience of getting to know the local children, there are activities like boat rides, kayaking, cycling, elephant riding, go karting, swimming and watching the fascinating performances of the traditional Vietnamese water puppets.”
