Enjoy your trip in Vietnam with your family!
Vietnam is one of the safest countries in the world to travel with your family. Small children and teens are respected in all regions of the country, so hold no fears about travelling to Vietnam with them. To meander through an ancient society, viewing the spectacular scenery and the sites is very educational, and a lot of family fun can be had during the journey. Choose a tour that pays special attention to family travel and you can’t go wrong. Visit one of the many orphanages in the country with your children and compare their lifestyle at home with the kids in any orphanage, help to do some chores around the orphanage; like painting a building or just playing games with those unfortunate enough to find themselves living there. It is an education in itself to witness how children behave in another country, to discover that the children of Vietnam have over 50 people in a class at a state run school, is extremely enlightening.
There are charities in Vietnam, set up to assist young underprivileged children, to help children with education, finding work and to help them overcome any difficulties in their lives. In Hoi An for instance families can visit a restaurant facing the river front run by the charity ‘Blue Dragon’ where all profits are dedicated to the charity’s work. It trains underprivileged children to work in the hospitality industry amongst other meaningful objectives.
Children can have a lot of fun in Vietnam, from watching a traditional water-puppet show, that is unique to the country, enjoy a little cruising, making a coloured lantern in Hoi An, visiting sacred sites and frolicking on an exotic, tropical beach, all the while travelling past spectacular scenery and ancient buildings, that is Vietnam. If the children are old enough to cycle they can enjoy their time cycling through villages and towns, meeting colourful ethnics, and all visitors will be thrilled by all the sites, the smells, delicious food and different sounds throughout the country. Enjoy time with an ethnic family on a home-stay visit, cruise through the remarkable Halong Bay and/or the colourful Mekong Delta; attend floating markets, discovering and exploring as you go.
The sights, smells and sounds will be indelibly printed in the minds of the whole family, and they will always remember their time spent travelling in Vietnam with family.
