Life in Vietnam, as indeed throughout Southeast Asia, revolves entirely around the family. Wherever you travel, people here are far more relaxed and welcoming about having children in shops, Bazaars, restaurants and attractions than back home, particularly foreign children, which is heartening as a parent. Kids help break the ice, facilitating interaction with locals in remote farmsteads or city sites and restaurants. Most of all, Vietnam offers value for money, making it a budget-friendly destination without compromising quality experiences. From educational opportunities at museums and ancient temples to the sheer joy of interacting with local communities, Vietnam promises a memorable and enriching family holiday that will create lasting memories for everyone involved.
With a wealth of adventurous activities on offer, occupying children of all ages, you will have no trouble finding engaging things for the children to enjoy, including a harmonious blend of cultural experiences, breathtaking landscapes, and engaging activities suitable for all ages. Immerse your family in Vietnam's rich heritage by exploring the bustling cities of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, where you can visit historical sites by cycle rickshaw, take in traditional water puppet shows or enjoy the lively atmosphere of the night bazaar.
The country's diverse and mesmerizing scenic beauty ranges from the magnificent limestone karsts of Halong Bay and the lush rice terraces of Sapa, offering picturesque settings for family adventures, from cycling and gentle boat cruises to rafting among rapids. In contrast, the coastal towns offer relaxing beach resorts, charming ancient towns to explore, and a handful of amusement parks for younger children.
The whole family will delight in Vietnam's renowned cuisine, with fresh ingredients and vibrant flavours that tantalize your taste buds. Embark on food tours, sample delectable street food, and participate in cooking classes to learn the art of Vietnamese culinary delights.
