Vietnam with children (family / kids)
Vietnam is considered as one of the safest countries in Asia and there is so much to see! Why wait to travel until the kids are grown up? Kids can easily join from the age of 6. They enjoy the cultural differences and notice complete different things than adults. Of course you should adjust the pace a little to the children.It is nice to include activities for children in your program. The water puppet show in Hanoi, making silk lanterns in Hoi An or a cyclo ride through the Chinese district of Saigon. And of course the beach! We made a selection from our program for 'child friendly' activities. Ask for our children rates.
